Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Many Glorious Instances of His Favor to the Old Testament Church

Thanksgiving 4.14 | NASB

For the many glorious instances of God’s favor to the Old Testament church.

I adore that wisdom, peace, and goodness with which You removed the vine from Egypt; You drove out the nations and planted it; You cleared the ground before it, and it took deep root and filled the land. Psalm 80:8-9(NASB)

And they did not possess the land by their own sword, and their own arm did not save them, but Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your presence, for You favored them. Psalm 44:3(NASB)

I bless You that the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God; Romans 3:2(NASB) that they had the adoption as sons, and the glory and the covenants and the giving of the Law and the temple service and the promises: Romans 9:4(NASB) And that not one word has failed of all Your good promise, which You promised through Moses Your servant. 1 Kings 8:56(NASB)

I bless You for all that which You did, in many portions and in many ways, speak long ago to the fathers in the prophets, Hebrews 1:1(NASB) those men who, moved by the Holy Spirit, spoke from God, 2 Peter 1:21(NASB) and prophesied of the grace that would come to the people of God, predicting the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow; and that they were not serving themselves only, but all believers, in those great things – things into which angels long to look. 1 Peter 1:10-12(NASB)

And especially, I bless You that You have provided something better for this generation of believers, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect. Hebrews 11:40(NASB)
