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 | NASB

That I may be taken into covenant with God and admitted into a relationship with Him.

Be to me a God, and take me as one who belongs to You, as one who is counted among Your people; Hebrews 8:10(NASB) and make me volunteer freely in the day of Your power, Psalm 110:3(NASB) though I am no longer worthy to be called Your son. Luke 15:19(NASB) For how would You set me, who has been rebellious, among Your sons, and give me the pleasant land? But You have said that I shall call You, My Father, and not turn away from following You. Jeremiah 3:19(NASB) Shall I not therefore from this time call to You, “My Father, You are the friend of my youth”? Jeremiah 3:4(NASB)

Lord, I hold fast Your covenant; Isaiah 56:4(NASB) to You I join myself in an everlasting covenant; Jeremiah 50:5(NASB) O that You would make me to pass under the rod and bring me into the bond of the covenant, Ezekiel 20:37(NASB) that I may become Yours. Ezekiel 16:8(NASB)

Make an everlasting covenant with me, according to the faithful mercies shown to David. Isaiah 55:3(NASB)

That I may have the favor of God and an interest in His special love.

I seek Your favor, O God, with all my heart; be gracious to me according to Your word, Psalm 119:58(NASB) for Your favor is for a lifetime; Psalm 30:5(NASB) yes, Your lovingkindness is better than life itself. Psalm 63:3(NASB)

LORD, make Your face shine on me, and be gracious to me; LORD, lift up the light of Your countenance upon me, and give me peace. Numbers 6:25-26(NASB)

Remember me, O LORD, in Your favor toward Your people. O visit me with Your salvation, that I may see the prosperity of Your chosen ones and may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation and may glory with Your inheritance. Psalm 106:4-5(NASB)
