Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for a Sense of Assurance

Petition 3.9 | NIV

I must pray for the comfortable sense of my reconciliation to God and my acceptance with him.

That I may have some evidence of the pardon of my sins and of my adoption.

O let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones which sin has crushed rejoice. Psalm 51:8(NIV)

Say to each of your children, “Take heart, Son, Daughter; your sins are forgiven.” Matthew 9:2(NIV)

Let the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse my conscience from acts that lead to death, so that I may serve you, the living God! Hebrews 9:14(NIV)

Let your Spirit testify with my spirit that I am God’s child, and if I am a child, then I am an heir – an heir of God and a co-heir with Christ. Romans 8:16-17(NIV)

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