Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Grace to Assist you that you may be Diligent in your Duty

Petition 3.29 | ESV

That we may be active and diligent in our duty.

Lord, quicken me to work the works of him who sent me while it is day, because night is coming, wherein no one can work; John 9:4(ESV) and what good my hands find to do, enable me to do it with all my might, for there is no work or knowledge in Sheol, to which I am going. Ecclesiastes 9:10(ESV)

Lord, grant that I may never be slothful in zeal, but fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; Romans 12:11(ESV) steadfast and immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord my labor is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58(ESV)

Lord, make me zealously affected in every good work; Galatians 4:18(KJV) and in whatever I do, enable me to work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23(ESV)

Lord, enable me to do the work of every day in its day, as each day requires, Ezra 3:4(ESV) making the best use of the time, because the days are evil; Ephesians 5:16(ESV) that when my Master comes, he may find me so doing. Luke 12:43(ESV)
