Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Grace to Assist you that you may be Universally Conscientious

Petition 3.33 | NIV

That I may be universally conscientious.

O that I may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured. Colossians 4:12(NIV)

O that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees! Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands. Psalm 119:5-6(NIV)

Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end. Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight. Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Psalm 119:33-36(NIV)

I pray that out of your glorious riches you may strengthen me with power through your Spirit in my inner being, so that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith; and that I, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that I may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God, Ephesians 3:16-20(NIV) and may participate in the divine nature. 2 Peter 1:4(NIV)

And let Christ’s love compel me to no longer live for myself but for him who died for me and was raised again. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15(NIV)
