Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Plead the Promises of God for the Enforcing of your Petitions

Petition 3.41 | KJV

I must plead the promises of God for the enforcing of all my petitions, put these promises in suit, and refer myself to them.

Lord, thou hast given me many exceeding great and precious promises, 2 Peter 1:4(KJV) which are all Yea and Amen in Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:20(KJV) Now be it unto thy servant according to the word which thou hast spoken. 2 Samuel 7:25(KJV)

Give me to draw water with joy out of these wells of salvation, Isaiah 12:3(KJV) to suck and be satisfied from those breasts of consolation; Isaiah 66:11(KJV) and now, O Lord God, let the word which thou hast spoken concerning thy servant be established for ever, and do as thou hast said. 1 Chronicles 17:23(KJV)

Deal with me according to the tenor of the everlasting covenant, which is well-ordered in all things and sure, and which is all my salvation and all my desire. 2 Samuel 23:5(KJV)

Look upon me and be merciful to me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name; Psalm 119:132(KJV) and do more for me than I am able to ask or think, Ephesians 3:20(KJV) and supply all my needs according to thy riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19(KJV)
