Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Grace to Assist you that you may do your Duty Always and Everywhere

Petition 3.32 | ESV

That we may do the duty of every condition of life, every event of providence, and every relation wherein we stand.

Lord, enable me in a day of prosperity to be joyful, and in a day of adversity to consider, because God has made the one as well as the other; Ecclesiastes 7:14(ESV) to add to my knowledge self-control, and to self-control steadfastness. 2 Peter 1:6(ESV)

Give me grace to remain with you in the condition I have been called, 1 Corinthians 7:24(ESV) and in all my ways to acknowledge you; Proverbs 3:6(ESV) and be pleased to establish my steps. Proverbs 16:9(ESV)

Let those who have been called, being slaves, be freedmen of the Lord; and those who have been called, being free, be slaves of Christ. 1 Corinthians 7:22(ESV)

Let all in every relation dwell in unity, Psalm 133:1(ESV) that it may be like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion. Psalm 133:3(ESV) O that I may dwell together as a joint heir of the grace of life with your people, that my prayers may not be hindered. 1 Peter 3:7(ESV)

Give me grace to honor everyone, to love the brotherhood, to fear God, 1 Peter 2:17(ESV) and to be subject to the governing authorities, Romans 13:1(ESV) not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. Romans 13:5(ESV)
