Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Support and Comfort you Need in your Afflictions

Petition 3.35 | ESV

We must pray for effectual support and comfort under all the crosses and afflictions that we meet with in this world.

I know that I am born to trouble as the sparks fly upward; Job 5:7(ESV) but in six troubles be pleased to deliver me, and in seven let no evil touch me. Job 5:19(ESV)

Let the eternal God be my dwelling place, and underneath be the everlasting arms; Deuteronomy 33:27(ESV) that the spirit you have made may not grow faint before you, Isaiah 57:16(ESV) nor the soul that you have redeemed. Psalm 71:23(ESV)

Let me be strengthened with all power, according to your glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy. Colossians 1:11(ESV)

Let your statutes be my songs in the house of my sojourning; Psalm 119:54(ESV) and let your testimonies, which I have taken as a heritage forever, be always the joy of my heart. Psalm 119:111(ESV)

When I am afflicted in every way, let me not be crushed; and when I am perplexed, let me not be driven to despair; 2 Corinthians 4:8(ESV) but as sorrowful, let me be always rejoicing; as having nothing, yet possessing everything. 2 Corinthians 6:10(ESV)
