Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Grace of Hope

Petition 3.24 | NASB

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

Let perseverance work proven character in me, and proven character, hope – such a hope that does not disappoint. Romans 5:4-5(NASB) Through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures, let me have hope, Romans 15:4(NASB) and be saved in hope. Romans 8:24(NASB)

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

Let me be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 1 Peter 1:3(NASB) and let that hope be to me as an anchor of the soul, sure and steadfast, entering within the veil, where the Forerunner has entered for me. Hebrews 6:19-20(NASB)

Let me have Christ in me, the hope of glory, Colossians 1:27(NASB) and never be moved away from the hope of the gospel; Colossians 1:23(NASB) but enable me to show diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end. Hebrews 6:11(NASB)
