Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.32 | NIV

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

Lord, enable me when times are good to be happy, but when times are bad to consider: for you have made the one as well as the other. Ecclesiastes 7:14(NIV) Enable me to add to my knowledge self-control; and to self-control, perseverance. 2 Peter 1:6(NIV)

Give me grace to remain with you in the situation you called me to, 1 Corinthians 7:24(NIV) and in all my ways to acknowledge you; Proverbs 3:6(NIV) and be pleased to direct my paths. Proverbs 16:9(NIV)

Let those who were slaves when they were called be the Lord’s freemen; and those who were freemen when they were called, be Christ’s slaves. 1 Corinthians 7:22(NIV)

Let all in every relation live together in unity, Psalm 133:1(NIV) that it may be as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. Psalm 133:3(NIV) O that I may live together as a joint-heir of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder my prayers. 1 Peter 3:7(NIV)

Give me grace to show proper respect to everyone, to love the brotherhood of believers, to fear God, 1 Peter 2:17(NIV) and to submit myself to the governing authorities, Romans 13:1(NIV) not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. Romans 13:5(NIV)
