Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Assurance you have of Christ’s Second Coming

For the assurance I have of his second coming to judge the world.

I bless you that you have set a day when you will judge the world with justice by the man you have appointed; you have given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead. Acts 17:31(NIV)

That in that day the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels, punishing those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of the Lord Jesus: 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8(NIV) And he will come to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed; 2 Thessalonians 1:10(NIV) for he will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 4:14(NIV)

That he will then send out his angels to weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil, Matthew 13:41(NIV) and to gather together his elect from the four winds; Matthew 24:31(NIV) and then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Matthew 13:43(NIV)

And I then, in keeping with your promise, look forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness: Lord, grant that since I am looking forward to this, I may make every effort to be found spotless, blameless, and at peace with him; 2 Peter 3:13-14(NIV) and then Come, Lord Jesus! Come soon! Revelation 22:20(NIV)
