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 | NIV

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

Be my God, and take me to be of your people; Hebrews 8:10(NIV) and make me a willing troop on your day of battle, Psalm 110:3(NIV) though I am no longer worthy to be called your child. Luke 15:19(NIV) For how should you put me, who has been rebellious, among the children, 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(NIV) Shall I not therefore call to you, “My Father, my friend from my youth”? Jeremiah 3:4(NIV)

Lord, I hold fast to your covenant; Isaiah 56:4(NIV) to you I bind myself in an everlasting covenant; Jeremiah 50:5(NIV) O that you would cause me to pass under your rod and bring me into the bond of the covenant, Ezekiel 20:37(NIV) that I may become yours. Ezekiel 16:8(NIV)

Make with me an everlasting covenant, your faithful love promised to David. Isaiah 55:3(NIV)

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

I have sought your face with all my heart, O God; be gracious to me according to your promise, Psalm 119:58(NIV) for your favor lasts a lifetime; Psalm 30:5(NIV) yes, your love is better than life itself. Psalm 63:3(NIV)

LORD, make your face shine upon me and be gracious to me; LORD, turn your face towards me and give me peace. Numbers 6:25-26(NIV)

Remember me, O LORD, when you show favor to your people; come to my aid when you save them, that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones; that I may share in the joy of your nation and join your inheritance in giving praise. Psalm 106:4-5(NIV)
