Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.30 | KJV

That I may be resolute and courageous in my duty, as one that knows that though I may be a loser for Christ, I shall not be a loser by him in the end.

Lord, teach me to endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ, 2 Timothy 2:3(KJV) that I may not fear the reproach of men or their revilings, Isaiah 51:7(KJV) nor be ashamed of Christ or of his words, Mark 8:38(KJV) knowing whom I have believed, even one who is able to keep what I have committed to him against that day. 2 Timothy 1:12(KJV)

Though bonds and afflictions should abide me, Lord, grant that none of these things may move me, and that I may not count life itself dear to me, so I may finish my course with joy. Acts 20:23-24(KJV)

Enable me in all things to approve myself to God; 2 Corinthians 6:4(KJV) and then to pass by honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report, clad with the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 2 Corinthians 6:7-8(KJV) as one that accounts it a very small thing to be judged of man’s judgment, for he that judgeth me is the Lord. 1 Corinthians 4:3-4(KJV)
