Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Faith

Petition 3.19 | KJV

I must pray for faith.

Unto me, Lord, let it be given to believe; Philippians 1:29(KJV) for the faith by which I am saved is not of myself, it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8(KJV)

Lord, increase my faith, Luke 17:5(KJV) and perfect what is lacking in it, 1 Thessalonians 3:10(KJV) that I may be strong in faith, giving glory to God. Romans 4:20(KJV)

Lord, give me so to be crucified with Christ, as that the life I may live in the flesh, I may live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me; Galatians 2:20(KJV) and so to bear about with me continually the dying of the Lord Jesus, as that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in my mortal body. 2 Corinthians 4:10(KJV)

As I have received Christ Jesus the Lord, enable me so to walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, as I have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6-7(KJV)

Let every word of thine profit me, being mixed with faith, Hebrews 4:2(KJV) by which I receive thy testimony, and set to my seal that God is true. John 3:33(KJV)

I beseech thee, work in me that faith which is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen, Hebrews 11:1(KJV) by which I may look above the things that are seen, that are temporal, and may look at the things that are not seen, that are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18(KJV)

Enable me by faith to set the Lord always before me, Psalm 16:8(KJV) and to have my eyes ever towards him, Psalm 25:15(KJV) that I may act in every thing, as seeing him that is invisible, and having a respect to the recompense of reward. Hebrews 11:26-27(KJV)

Let my heart be purified by faith, Acts 15:9(KJV) and let it be my victory overcoming the world; 1 John 5:4(KJV) and let me be kept from fainting by believing that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13(KJV)
