Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Preserving Grace

Petition 3.36 | NASB

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

Lord, rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely to Your heavenly kingdom; 2 Timothy 4:18(NASB) being kept from stumbling, may I stand in Your presence, at the coming of Your glory, blameless with great joy. Jude 1:24(NASB)

Lord, cause me to increase and abound in love for Your people, and for all people, so that my heart may be established without blame in holiness before my God and Father at the coming of the Lord Jesus with all His saints. 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13(NASB)

If Satan demands permission to sift me like wheat, yet let Christ’s intercession prevail for me, that my faith may not fail. Luke 22:31-32(NASB)

Until I am taken out of the world, let me be kept from the evil one, John 17:15(NASB) and sanctified in Your truth; Your word is truth. John 17:17(NASB)

Build me up, I pray, in my most holy faith, and keep me in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of my Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. Jude 1:20-21(NASB)

Grant that I may continue to call upon You as long as I live; Psalm 116:2(NASB) and till I die, may I never put away my integrity from me; let me hold fast my righteousness and never let it go, and may my heart not reproach any of my days. Job 27:5-6(NASB)
