Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Reconciliation with God that you may Know His Peace

Petition 3.6 | ESV

We must likewise pray that God will be reconciled to us, that we may obtain his favor and blessing and gracious acceptance.

That we may be at peace with God and his anger may be turned away from us.

Being justified by faith, let me have peace with God through my Lord Jesus Christ, and through him let me have access into that grace in which believers stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Romans 5:1-2(ESV)

Be not a terror to me, for you are my refuge in the day of disaster. Jeremiah 17:17(ESV)

In Christ Jesus let me, who once was far off, be brought near by the blood of Christ; for he himself is his people’s peace, who has broken down the dividing wall of hostility between us, that he might reconcile us to God through his cross, thereby killing the hostility, and so making peace. Through him, therefore, let me, who has made myself a stranger and an alien, become a fellow citizen with the saints and a member of the household of God. Ephesians 2:13-19(ESV)

You have no wrath: would that you had thorns and briers to battle? You would burn them up together; yes, you would burn them up together; but you have encouraged me to lay hold of your protection, that I make peace, and have promised that I shall make peace. Isaiah 27:4-5(ESV) O let me therefore agree with you and be at peace, that thereby good may come to me. Job 22:21(ESV)

Heal me, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise. Jeremiah 17:14(ESV) Do not be angry with me forever but revive me again, that I may rejoice in you. Show me your steadfast love, O LORD, and grant me your salvation. Psalm 85:5-7(ESV)
