Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Thanksgiving 4.17 | NIV

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

I bless you for the assurance I have that he is a teacher who has come from God, for no one could perform the miraculous signs that he did if God were not with him. John 3:2(NIV)

That in these last days you have spoken by your Son, Hebrews 1:2(NIV) whose teaching was not his own; it came from him who sent him, John 7:16(NIV) and he spoke as one who had authority; Matthew 7:29(NIV) and that I am encouraged to come and learn from him, because he is gentle and humble in heart, and in learning of him I shall find rest for my soul. Matthew 11:29(NIV)

I bless you that he has left me an example, that I should follow his steps, in that he committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth; and when they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; 1 Peter 2:21-23(NIV) and his food and drink was to do the will of his Father, John 4:34(NIV) in that he was holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners. Hebrews 7:26(NIV) O that I may be armed with the same attitude; 1 Peter 4:1(NIV) and that I may be like him in this world, 1 John 4:17(NIV) and that I may walk as he did. 1 John 2:6(NIV)

I bless you that the very work that he did testifies that the Father has sent him; John 5:36(NIV) that by his power the blind received sight, the lame walked, those who had leprosy were cured, the deaf heard, the dead were raised, and the good news was preached to the poor, Matthew 11:5(NIV) and even the winds and the waves obeyed him, Matthew 8:27(NIV) for which I praise the God of Israel. Matthew 15:31(NIV) Surely he was the Son of God! Matthew 27:54(NIV)
