Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Daily Supplies of Comfort and Support

Petition 3.40 | NIV

I must pray to be supplied with the comforts and supports I daily stand in need of.

O may the favor of the Lord my God rest upon me; establish the work of my hands for me—yes, establish the work of my hands. Psalm 90:17(NIV) O LORD, save me; O LORD, grant me success. Psalm 118:25(NIV)

Let my sons in their youth be like well-nurtured plants, and my daughters like pillars carved to adorn a palace. Let my barns be filled with every kind of provision; and let there be no breaching of walls, no going into captivity, no cry of distress in the streets of your people. Blessed are the people of whom this is true; indeed, rather, blessed are the people whose God is the LORD. Psalm 144:12-15(NIV)

Let me be blessed in the city and blessed in the country; Deuteronomy 28:3(NIV) let my basket and my kneading trough be blessed; let me be blessed when I come in and when I go out. Deuteronomy 28:5-6(NIV)

Let your good providence so order all events concerning me that they may be made to work for my good, as you have promised they shall to all who love you, who have been called according to your purpose. Romans 8:28(NIV)

Grant me to trust in the LORD and do good, and then I shall dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture; Psalm 37:3(NIV) be pleased also to make my righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of my cause like the noonday sun. Psalm 37:6(NIV)

Let me be protected from the lash of the tongue and not fear when destruction comes; Job 5:21(NIV) let me have a covenant with the stones of the field, and let the wild animals be at peace with me; let me know that my tent is secure, and let me take stock of my property and find nothing missing. Job 5:23-24(NIV)

And if God will be with me and will watch over me on this journey during my pilgrimage in this world, and will give me food to eat and clothes to wear so that I may return safely to my heavenly Father’s house, then the LORD will be my God. Genesis 28:20-21(NIV)
