Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Preserving Grace

Petition 3.36 | NIV

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 attack and bring me safely to your heavenly kingdom; 2 Timothy 4:8(NIV) keep me from falling, that I may be presented before your glorious presence without fault and with great joy. Jude 1:24(NIV)

Lord, make my love increase and overflow for your people and for everyone else; strengthen my heart so that I will be blameless and holy in the presence of my God and Father when my Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones. 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13(NIV)

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

Until I am taken out of the world, protect me from the evil one, John 17:15(NIV) and sanctify me by the truth; your word is truth. John 17:17(NIV)

Build me up, I pray, in the most holy faith, and keep me in God’s love as I wait for the mercy of my Lord Jesus Christ to bring me to eternal life. Jude 1:20-21(NIV)

Grant that I may continue to call on you as long as I live; Psalm 116:2(NIV) and until I die, may I not deny my integrity; that I will maintain my righteousness and never let go of it; and that my conscience may not reproach me as long as I live. Job 27:5-6(NIV)
