Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Support and Comfort you Need in your Afflictions

Petition 3.35 | KJV

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

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

Let the eternal God be my refuge, and underneath be the everlasting arms; Deuteronomy 33:27(KJV) that the spirit thou hast made may not fail before thee, Isaiah 57:16(KJV) nor the soul that thou hast redeemed. Psalm 71:23(KJV)

Let me be strengthened with all might, according to thy glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness. Colossians 1:11(KJV)

Let thy statutes be my songs in the house of my pilgrimage; Psalm 119:54(KJV) and let thy testimonies, which I have taken as a heritage for ever, be always the rejoicing of my heart. Psalm 119:111(KJV)

When I am troubled on every side, yet let me not be distressed; and when I am perplexed, let me not be in despair; 2 Corinthians 4:8(KJV) but as sorrowful, and yet always rejoicing; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. 2 Corinthians 6:10(KJV)
