Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Thanksgiving 4.14 | NIV

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

I adore that wisdom, peace, and goodness with which you brought the vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it; you cleared the ground for it, and it took root and filled the land. Psalm 80:8-9(NIV)

And it was not by their sword that they won the land, nor did their arm bring them victory; it was your right hand, your arm, and the light of your face, for you loved them. Psalm 44:3(NIV)

I bless you that the Jews were entrusted with the very words of God; Romans 3:2(NIV) that they had the adoption as sons, the divine glory, and the covenant, the receiving of the law, the temple worship, and the promises: Romans 9:4(NIV) And that not one word has failed of all the good promises you gave through your servant Moses. 1 Kings 8:56(NIV)

I bless you for all that which you did, at many times and in various ways, speak to the forefathers through the prophets, Hebrews 1:1(NIV) those men who spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit, 2 Peter 1:21(NIV) and prophesied of the grace that was to come to your people, predicting the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow; and that they were not serving themselves but all believers, when they spoke of those great things – things that even angels long to look into. 1 Peter 1:10-12(NIV)

And especially, I bless you that you have planned something better for believers alive today, so that only together with us would they be made perfect. Hebrews 11:40(NIV)
