Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Plead the Promises of God for the Enforcing of your Petitions

Petition 3.41 | NASB

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, You have granted me many precious and magnificent promises, 2 Peter 1:4(NASB) which are all Yes and Amen in Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:20(NASB) Now may it be done to Your servant according to the word that You have spoken. 2 Samuel 7:25(NASB)

Give me to joyously draw water from the springs of salvation, Isaiah 12:3(NASB) to nurse and be satisfied with Jerusalem’s comforting breasts; Isaiah 66:11(NASB) and now, O LORD God, let the word that You have spoken concerning Your servant be established forever, and do as You have spoken. 1 Chronicles 17:23(NASB)

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

Turn to me and be gracious to me, after Your manner with those who love Your name; Psalm 119:132(NASB) do more for me than I am able to ask or think, Ephesians 3:20(NASB) and supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19(NASB)
