Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Reconciliation with God that you may Have His Blessing and Abiding Presence

Petition 3.8 | ESV

That we may have the blessing of God.

O God, be gracious to me and bless me and make your face to shine upon me; Psalm 67:1(ESV) yes, let God, my God, give me his blessing. Psalm 67:6(ESV)

May the LORD, he who made heaven and earth, bless me from Zion; Psalm 134:3(ESV) bless me with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 1:3(ESV)

O that you would bless me indeed! 1 Chronicles 4:10(KJV) Command the blessing upon me, even life forevermore; Psalm 133:3(ESV) for you bless, O LORD, and it shall be blessed. 1 Chronicles 17:27(KJV)

Let me receive blessing from the LORD, even righteousness from the God of my salvation. Psalm 24:5(ESV)

Have you but one blessing? Indeed, you have many blessings! Bless me, even me also, O my Father; Genesis 27:38(ESV) yes, let the blessing of Abraham come to me, which comes to the Gentiles through faith; Galatians 3:14(ESV) and the blessing of Jacob, for I will not let you go unless you bless me. Genesis 32:26(ESV)

That we may have the presence of God with us.

If your presence will not go with me, do not bring me up from here; Exodus 33:15(ESV) never leave me nor forsake me. Hebrews 13:5(ESV)

O cast me not away from your presence, or ever take your Holy Spirit away from me; Psalm 51:11(ESV) but let me always dwell with the upright in your presence. Psalm 140:13(ESV)
