Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Grace to Make you Wiser and Better Every Day

Petition 3.34 | NASB

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

Lord, give me to grow with a growth which is from God; Colossians 2:19(NASB) to grow in the grace and knowledge of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; 2 Peter 3:18(NASB) to hold to my way; and, having clean hands, to grow stronger and stronger. Job 17:9(NASB)

Let my path be like the light of dawn, that shines brighter and brighter until the full day. Proverbs 4:18(NASB)

I have not yet obtained, nor have I already become perfect; Lord, grant that therefore, forgetting what lies behind, I may reach forward to what lies ahead, for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14(NASB)

Be like the dew to me, that I may blossom like the lily and take root like a cedar of Lebanon; that my shoots may sprout, and my beauty may be like the olive tree. Hosea 14:5-6(NASB) And let the sun of righteousness rise upon me with healing in its wings, that I may go forth and skip about like a calf from the stall. Malachi 4:2(NASB)
