Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.32 | KJV

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

Lord, enable me in a day of prosperity to be joyful, and in a day of adversity to consider, because God hath set the one over against the other; Ecclesiastes 7:14(KJV) to add to my knowledge temperance, and to temperance patience. 2 Peter 1:6(KJV)

Give me grace to abide with thee in the calling wherein I am called, 1 Corinthians 7:24(KJV) and in all my ways to acknowledge thee; Proverbs 3:6(KJV) and be thou pleased to direct my steps. Proverbs 16:9(KJV)

Let those that are called, being servants, be the Lord’s freemen; and those that are called, being free, be Christ’s servants. 1 Corinthians 7:22(KJV)

Let all in every relation dwell together in unity, Psalm 133:1(KJV) that it may be as the dew of Hermon and as the dew that descends upon the mountains of Zion. Psalm 133:3(KJV) 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(KJV)

Give me grace to honour all men, to love the brotherhood, to fear God, 1 Peter 2:17(KJV) and to be subject to the higher powers, Romans 13:1(KJV) not only for wrath but also for conscience’s sake. Romans 13:5(KJV)
