Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Grace to Make you Wiser and Better Every Day

Petition 3.34 | NIV

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

Lord, give me to grow with God-caused growth; Colossians 2:19(NIV) to grow in the grace and knowledge of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; 2 Peter 3:18(NIV) to hold to my ways; and, having clean hands, to grow stronger. Job 17:9(NIV)

Let my path be like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. Proverbs 4:18(NIV)

I have not yet obtained, nor have I already been made perfect; Lord, grant that therefore, forgetting what is behind, I may strain toward what is ahead, toward the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14(NIV)

Be like the dew to me that I may blossom like a lily and send down my roots like a cedar of Lebanon; that my shoots may grow and my splendor may be like an olive tree. Hosea 14:5-6(NIV) And let the sun of righteousness rise upon me with healing in its wings, so that I may go out and leap like a calf released from the stall.Malachi 4:2(NIV)
