Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Grace to Preserve you from Sin

Petition 3.25 | NASB

I must pray for grace to preserve me from sin and all appearances of it and approaches towards it.

Now I pray to God that I may do no wrong, 2 Corinthians 13:7(NASB) but may prove myself to be blameless and innocent, a child of God, above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. Philippians 2:15(NASB)

Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity, and revive me in Your ways. Psalm 119:37(NASB) Remove the false way from me, and graciously grant me Your law. Psalm 119:29(NASB)

Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, to practice deeds of wickedness with men who do iniquity; and do not let me eat of their delicacies. Psalm 141:4(NASB)

O acquit me of hidden faults; also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins: Let them not rule over me, but let me be blameless and acquitted of great transgression; Psalm 19:12-13(NASB) and grant that hereby I may prove myself blameless with You, by keeping myself from my own iniquity. Psalm 18:23(NASB)

Let Your word be treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against You, Psalm 119:11(NASB) and Your grace be at all times sufficient for me, 2 Corinthians 12:9(NASB) ready to me, and mighty in me; and never give me up to my own heart’s lust, to walk in my own counsels. Jeremiah 7:24(NASB)

Enable me to walk carefully, not as unwise but as wise, Ephesians 5:15(NASB) so carefully, that I may cut off opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to blaspheme that fair name by which I have been called; James 2:7(NASB) and by doing right may I silence the ignorance of foolish men, 1 Peter 2:15(NASB) and may I adorn the doctrine of God my Savior in every respect. Titus 2:10(NASB)
