Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.30 | ESV

That we may be resolute and courageous in our duty, as those who know that though we may be losers for Christ, we shall not be losers by him in the end.

Lord, teach me to share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus, 2 Timothy 2:3(ESV) that I may not fear the reproach of men or their revilings, Isaiah 51:7(ESV) nor be ashamed of Christ or of his words, Mark 8:38(ESV) knowing whom I have believed, even one who is able to guard until that Day what I have entrusted to him. 2 Timothy 1:12(ESV)

Though imprisonment and afflictions should await me, Lord, grant that none of these things may move me, and that I may not account life itself as precious to me, if only I may finish my course. Acts 20:23-24(ESV)

Enable me in every way to commend myself to God; 2 Corinthians 6:4(ESV) and then to pass through honor and dishonor, through slander and praise, clad with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left, 2 Corinthians 6:7-8(ESV) as one who accounts it a very small thing to be judged by any human court, for it is the Lord who judges me. 1 Corinthians 4:3-4(ESV)
