Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Plead the Promises of God for the Enforcing of your Petitions

Petition 3.41 | NIV

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 given me many great and precious promises, 2 Peter 1:4(NIV) which are all “Yes” and “Amen” in Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:20(NIV) Now may it be to your servant as you have said. Luke 1:38(NIV)

Grant me to draw water with joy from these wells of salvation, Isaiah 12:3(NIV) to nurse and be satisfied at those comforting breasts; Isaiah 66:11(NIV) and now, LORD God, keep forever the promise you have made concerning your servant, and do as you have promised. 1 Chronicles 17:23(NIV)

Deal with me according to the tenor of the everlasting covenant, which is arranged and secured in every part, and which is all my salvation and all my desire. 2 Samuel 23:5(KJV)

Turn to me and have mercy on me, as you always do to those who love your name; Psalm 119:132(NIV) do immeasurably more for me than I am able to ask or imagine, Ephesians 3:20(NIV) and meet all my needs according to your glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19(NIV)
