Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Faith

Petition 3.19 | NASB

I must pray for faith.

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

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

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

As I have received Christ Jesus the Lord, enable me so to walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in my faith, just as I was instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. Colossians 2:6-7(NASB)

Let every word of Yours profit me, being united by faith in me, Hebrews 4:2(NASB) by which I receive Your testimony and set my seal to this, that God is true. John 3:33(NASB)

I beg You, work in me that faith which is the assurance of things hoped for and the conviction of things not seen, Hebrews 11:1(NASB) by which I may look above the things which are seen, which are temporal, and may look at the things which are not seen, which are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18(NASB)

Enable me by faith to set the LORD continually before me, Psalm 16:8(NASB) and to have my eyes continually toward Him, Psalm 25:15(NASB) that I may act in everything as seeing Him who is unseen, and look to the reward. Hebrews 11:26-27(NASB)

Let my heart be cleansed by faith, Acts 15:9(NASB) and let it be my victory to overcome the world; 1 John 5:4(NASB) and let me be kept from despairing by believing that I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13(NASB)
