Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Grace of Hope

Petition 3.24 | ESV

We must pray for the grace of hope; a hope in God and Christ, and a hope of eternal life.

Let endurance produce character in me, and character produce hope – such a hope that does not put me to shame. Romans 5:4-5(ESV) Through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures, let me have hope, Romans 15:4(ESV) and be saved by hope. Romans 8:24(ESV)

Let the God of Jacob be my help, and my hope always be in the LORD my God. Psalm 146:5(ESV)

Let me be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 1 Peter 1:3(ESV) and let that hope be to me as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, entering into the inner place behind the curtain, where the Forerunner has gone on my behalf. Hebrews 6:19-20(ESV)

Let me have Christ in me, the hope of glory, Colossians 1:27(ESV) and never be shifting from the hope of the gospel; Colossians 1:23(ESV) but enable me to show earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end. Hebrews 6:11(ESV)
