Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.29 | NASB

That I may be active and diligent in my duty.

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

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

Lord, make me zealously affected in every good work; Galatians 4:18(KJV) and in whatever I do, enable me to do my work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men. Colossians 3:23(NASB)

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