Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Grace of Hope

Petition 3.24 | NIV

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

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

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

Let me be given a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 1 Peter 1:3(NIV) and let that hope be to me as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure, entering the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where Jesus, who went before me, has entered on my behalf. Hebrews 6:19-20(NIV)

Let me have Christ in me, the hope of glory, Colossians 1:27(NIV) and never be moved from the hope held out in the gospel; Colossians 1:23(NIV) but enable me to show diligence to the end, in order to make my hope sure. Hebrews 6:11(NIV)
