Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.31 | NIV

That I may be pleasant and cheerful in my duty.

Lord, enable me to be joyful always, 1 Thessalonians 5:16(NIV) to rejoice in the Lord always, because he has said it again to me: Rejoice! Philippians 4:4(NIV) That I may go on my way rejoicing, may eat my food with gladness, and drink my wine with a joyful heart, as I shall have reason to do if God now favors what I do. Ecclesiastes 9:7(NIV)

Give me grace to serve you, the LORD my God, joyfully and gladly in the time of prosperity; Deuteronomy 28:47(NIV) and to sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of my God is great. Psalm 138:5(NIV)

Let me have that cheerfulness of heart which is good medicine, Proverbs 17:22(NIV) and deliver me from that anxious heart which weighs a man down, Proverbs 12:25(NIV) and that worldly sorrow which brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10(NIV)
