Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Grace of Hope

Petition 3.24 | KJV

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

Let patience work experience in me, and experience, hope, such a hope as maketh not ashamed. Romans 5:4-5(KJV) Through patience and comfort of the Scriptures, let me have hope, Romans 15:4(KJV) and be saved by hope. Romans 8:24(KJV)

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

Let me be begotten again to a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 1 Peter 1:3(KJV) and let that hope be to me as an anchor of the soul, sure and steadfast, entering into that within the veil, whither the Forerunner is for me entered. Hebrews 6:19-20(KJV)

Let me have Christ in me the hope of glory, Colossians 1:27(KJV) and never be moved away from that hope of the gospel; Colossians 1:23(KJV) but enable me to give diligence unto the full assurance of hope unto the end. Hebrews 6:11(KJV)
