Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Reconciliation with God that you may Know His Peace

Petition 3.6 | NIV

I must likewise pray that God will be reconciled to me, that I may obtain his favor and blessing and gracious acceptance.

That I may be at peace with God and his anger may be turned away from me.

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

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

In Christ Jesus let me, who was once far away, be brought near by the blood of Christ; for he himself is his people’s peace, who has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, and, that he might reconcile his people to God through his cross, has put to death their hostility, thus making peace. Through him, therefore, let me, who have made myself a foreigner and an alien, become a fellow citizen with God’s people and a member of God’s household. Ephesians 2:13-19(NIV)

You are not angry: If only there were briers and thorns confronting you! You would march against them in battle; you would set them all on fire. But you have encouraged me to come to you for refuge and make peace with you; yes, to make peace with you. Isaiah 27:4-5(NIV) O let me therefore submit to you and be at peace, for in this way prosperity may come to me. Job 22:21(NIV)

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