Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Reconciliation with God that you may be in Covenant with Him and Know His Favor

Petition 3.7 | KJV

That I may be taken into covenant with God and admitted into a relation to him.

Be thou to me a God, and take me to be of thy people; Hebrews 8:10(KJV) and make me willing in the day of thy power. Psalm 110:3(KJV) Though I am no more worthy to be called thy child; Luke 15:19(KJV) for how shouldest thou put me, who has been rebellious, among the children, and give me the pleasant land? But thou hast said that I shall call thee my Father and not turn away from thee. Jeremiah 3:19(KJV) Shall I not therefore from this time cry unto thee, My Father, thou art the guide of my youth. Jeremiah 3:4(KJV)

Lord, I take hold of thy covenant; Isaiah 56:4(KJV) to thee I join myself in a perpetual covenant; Jeremiah 50:5(KJV) O that thou wouldest cause me to pass under the rod and bring me into the bond of the covenant, Ezekiel 20:37(KJV) that I may become thine. Ezekiel 16:8(KJV)

Make with me an everlasting covenant, even the sure mercies of David. Isaiah 55:3(KJV)

That I may have the favour of God and an interest in his special love.

I entreat thy favour, O God, with my whole heart: Be merciful to me according to thy word, Psalm 119:58(KJV) for in thy favour is life; Psalm 30:5(KJV) yea, thy loving-kindness is better than life itself. Psalm 63:3(KJV)

Lord, make thy face to shine upon me and be gracious unto me; Lord, lift up the light of thy countenance upon me and give me peace. Numbers 6:25-26(KJV)

Remember me, O Lord, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people. O visit me with thy salvation that I may see the good of thy chosen and may rejoice in the goodness of thy nation and may glory with thine inheritance. Psalm 106:4-5(KJV)
