Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Grace to Make you Wiser and Better Every Day

Petition 3.34 | KJV

I must pray for grace to make me wiser and better every day than another.

Lord, give me to increase with the increases of God; Colossians 2:19(KJV) to grow in grace and in the knowledge of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; 2 Peter 3:18(KJV) to hold on my way; and, having clean hands, to grow stronger and stronger. Job 17:9(KJV)

Let my path be as the shining light, which shines more and more unto the perfect day. Proverbs 4:18(KJV)

I have not yet attained, nor am I already perfect; Lord, grant that therefore, forgetting the things that are behind, I may reach forth to those things that are before, for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14(KJV)

Be thou as the dew unto me, that I may grow as the lily and cast forth my roots as Lebanon; that my branches may spread and my beauty be as the olive-tree. Hosea 14:5-6(KJV) And let the Sun of righteousness arise upon me with healing under his wings, that I may go forth and grow up as a calf of the stall. Malachi 4:2(KJV)
