Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for a Sense of Assurance

Petition 3.9 | ESV

We must pray for the comfortable sense of our reconciliation to God and our acceptance with him.

That we may have some evidence of the pardon of our sins and of our adoption.

O let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that sin has broken rejoice. Psalm 51:8(ESV)

Say to each of your children, “Take heart, my son, my daughter; your sins are forgiven.” Matthew 9:2(ESV)

Let the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify my conscience from dead works to serve you, the living God. Hebrews 9:14(ESV)

Let your Spirit witness with my spirit that I am a child of God, and if a child, then an heir – an heir of God and a fellow heir with Christ. Romans 8:16-17(ESV)

Say to my soul, “I am your salvation.” Psalm 35:3(ESV)
