Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.30 | NIV

That I may be resolute and courageous in my duty, as one who 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 hardship like a good soldier of Christ Jesus, 2 Timothy 2:3(NIV) that I may not fear the reproach of men or their insults, Isaiah 51:7(NIV) nor be ashamed of Christ or his words, Mark 8:38(NIV) knowing whom I have believed, even one who is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day. 2 Timothy 1:12(NIV)

Though prison and hardships may face me, Lord, grant that none of these things may move me, and that I may consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race. Acts 20:23-24(NIV)

Enable me to commend myself to God in every way; 2 Corinthians 6:4(NIV) and then to pass through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report, with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left, 2 Corinthians 6:7-8(NIV) as one who cares very little if he is judged by any human court, for it is the Lord who judges me. 1 Corinthians 4:3-4(NIV)
