Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.32 | NASB

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 happy, and in a day of adversity to consider, because God has made the one as well as the other; Ecclesiastes 7:14(NASB) to add to my knowledge self-control, and to self-control perseverance. 2 Peter 1:6(NASB)

Give me grace to remain with You in that condition in which I have been called, 1 Corinthians 7:24(NASB) and in all my ways to acknowledge You; Proverbs 3:6(NASB) and be pleased to direct my steps. Proverbs 16:9(NASB)

Let those who have been called, being slaves, be the Lord’s freemen; and those who have been called, being free, be Christ’s slaves. 1 Corinthians 7:22(NASB)

Let all in every relation dwell together in unity; Psalm 133:1(NASB) that it may be like the dew of Hermon, coming down upon the mountains of Zion. Psalm 133:3(NASB) O that I may live together as a fellow heir of the grace of life with Your people, so that my prayers will not be hindered. 1 Peter 3:7(NASB)

Give me grace to honor all people, to love the brotherhood, to fear God, 1 Peter 2:17(NASB) and to be in subjection to the governing authorities, Romans 13:1(NASB) not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. Romans 13:5(NASB)
