Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Support and Comfort you Need in your Afflictions

Petition 3.35 | NIV

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 surely as sparks fly upward; Job 5:7(NIV) but in six calamities be pleased to rescue me, and in seven let no harm befall me. Job 5:19(NIV)

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

Let me be strengthened with all power according to your glorious might so that I may have great endurance and patience and joy. Colossians 1:11(NIV)

Let your decrees be the theme of my song wherever I lodge; Psalm 119:54(NIV) and let your statutes, which are my heritage forever, be always the joy of my heart. Psalm 119:111(NIV)

When I am hard pressed on every side, yet let me not be crushed; and when I am perplexed, let me not be in despair; 2 Corinthians 4:8(NIV) if sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; if having nothing, yet possessing everything. 2 Corinthians 6:10(NIV)
