Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Many Instances of His Goodness and Kind Providence

Thanksgiving 4.2 | NASB

With reference to all the creatures and the world of mankind in general. [continued]

You did not leave Yourself without witness among the nations, in that You did good and gave them rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying their hearts with food and gladness. Acts 14:17(NASB)

You cover the heavens with clouds, and provide rain for the earth, and make grass to grow on the mountains. You give to the beast its food, and to the young ravens which cry. Psalm 147:8-9(NASB)

You bring rain on a desert without a man in it, to satisfy the waste and desolate land. Job 38:26-27(NASB)

You visit the earth and cause it to overflow; You greatly enrich it; the stream of God is full of water; You prepare their grain, for thus You prepare the earth. You water its furrows abundantly, You settle its ridges, You soften it with showers, You bless its growth. You have crowned the year with Your bounty, and Your paths drip with fatness. Psalm 65:9-11(NASB)

You send forth springs in the valleys; they flow between the mountains; they give drink to every beast of the field; and beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they lift up their voices among the branches. Psalm 104:10-12(NASB)

You have established the earth upon its foundations, so that it will not totter forever and ever, Psalm 104:5(NASB) and set a boundary to the waters of the sea, so that they will not return to cover the earth. Psalm 104:9(NASB) You have enclosed the sea with doors, Job 38:8(NASB) and placed boundaries on it, saying, “Thus far you shall come, but no farther; and here shall your proud waves stop.” Job 38:10-11(NASB) And You have made good what You have sworn, that the waters of Noah would not flood the earth again. Isaiah 54:9(NASB)

Your covenant for the day and for the night is not broken; Jeremiah 33:20(NASB) but still You give the sun for light by day, and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, Jeremiah 31:35(NASB) and are faithful to that covenant of providence: That while the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease. Genesis 8:22(NASB)
