Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.31 | KJV

That I may be pleasant and cheerful in my duty.

Lord, enable me to rejoice evermore, 1 Thessalonians 5:16(KJV) to rejoice in the Lord always, because he hath again said unto me, Rejoice; Philippians 4:4(KJV) that I may go on my way rejoicing, may eat my bread with joy, and drink my wine with a merry heart, as I shall have reason to do if God now accepteth my works. Ecclesiastes 9:7(KJV)

Give me grace to serve thee, the Lord my God, with joyfulness and gladness of heart in the abundance of all things; Deuteronomy 28:47(KJV) and to sing in the ways of the Lord, because great is the glory of my God. Psalm 138:5(KJV)

Let me have that cheerfulness of heart which doeth good like a medicine, Proverbs 17:22(KJV) and deliver me from that heaviness which maketh the heart stoop, Proverbs 12:25(KJV) and that sorrow of the world which worketh death. 2 Corinthians 7:10(KJV)
