Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Christ’s Holy Life, Excellent Doctrine, and Glorious Miracles

Thanksgiving 4.17 | KJV

For his holy life, his excellent doctrine, and the glorious miracles he wrought to confirm his doctrine.

I bless thee for the assurance I have that he is a teacher come from God, since no man could do those miracles which he did, except God were with him. John 3:2(KJV)

That thou hast in these last days spoken by thy Son, Hebrews 1:2(KJV) whose doctrine was not his, but his that sent him; John 7:16(KJV) and he spoke as one having authority; Matthew 7:29(KJV) and that I am encouraged to come and learn of him, because he is meek and lowly in heart, and in learning of him I shall find rest to my soul. Matthew 11:29(KJV)

I bless thee that he hath left me an example, that I should follow his steps, in that he did not sin, neither was guile found in his mouth; and when he was reviled, he reviled not again; 1 Peter 2:21-23(KJV) and his meat and drink was to do the will of his Father, John 4:34(KJV) in that he was holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners. Hebrews 7:26(KJV) O that I may be armed with the same mind, 1 Peter 4:1(KJV) and that as he was, so I may be in this world; 1 John 4:17(KJV) and that I may so walk even as he walked. 1 John 2:6(KJV)

I bless thee that the works which he did, the same bore witness of him, that the Father had sent him, John 5:36(KJV) that by his power the blind received their sight, the lame walked, the lepers were cleansed, the deaf heard, the dead were raised up, and the poor had the gospel preached to them, Matthew 11:5(KJV) and even the winds and the sea obeyed him, Matthew 8:27(KJV) for which I glorify the God of Israel. Matthew 15:31(KJV) Doubtless this was the Son of God. Matthew 27:54(KJV)
