Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Support and Comfort you Need in your Afflictions

Petition 3.35 | NASB

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

We know that we are born for trouble as sparks fly upward; Job 5:7(NASB) but from six troubles be pleased to deliver us, and in seven do not let evil touch us. Job 5:19(NASB)

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

Let us be strengthened with all power, according to Your glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience. Colossians 1:11(NASB)

Let Your statutes be our songs in the house of our pilgrimage; Psalm 119:54(NASB) and let Your testimonies, which we have inherited forever, be always the joy of our hearts. Psalm 119:111(NASB)

When we are afflicted in every way, let us not be crushed; and when we are perplexed, let us not be despairing; 2 Corinthians 4:8(NASB) but as sorrowful, let us be always rejoicing, as having nothing yet possessing all things. 2 Corinthians 6:10(NASB)
