Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Faith

Petition 3.19 | NIV

I must pray for faith.

Lord, grant to me to believe; Philippians 1:29(NIV) for the faith by which I am saved is not from myself, it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8(NIV)

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

Lord, give me so to be crucified with Christ that the life I live in the body, I may live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me; Galatians 2:20(NIV) and so to always carry around with me the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in my mortal body. 2 Corinthians 4:10(NIV)

Just as I have received Christ Jesus as Lord, enable me to continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as I have been taught, overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7(NIV)

Let every word of yours be of value to me, being combined with faith, Hebrews 4:2(NIV) by which I accept your testimony and certify that God is truthful. John 3:33(NIV)

I beg you, work in me that faith which is sure of what I hope for and certain of what I do not see, Hebrews 11:1(NIV) by which I may fix my eyes not on what is seen, which is temporary, but on what is unseen, which is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18(NIV)

Enable me by faith to set the LORD always before me, Psalm 16:8(NIV) and to have my eyes ever on him, Psalm 25:15(NIV) so that I may act in everything as seeing him who is invisible and may look ahead to my reward. Hebrews 11:26-27(NIV)

Let my heart be purified by faith, Acts 15:9(NIV) and let it be my victory that overcomes the world. 1 John 5:4(NIV) 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)
