Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.29 | KJV

That I may be active and diligent in my duty.

Lord, quicken me to work the works of him that sent me, while it is day, because the night comes, wherein no man can work; John 9:4(KJV) and what good my hands find to do, to do it with all my might, because there is no work or knowledge in the grave whither I am going. Ecclesiastes 9:10(KJV)

Lord, grant that I may never be slothful in any good business, but fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; Romans 12:11(KJV) steadfast and unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as I know that my labour is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:58(KJV)

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

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