Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Sending of the Holy Spirit

Thanksgiving 4.26 | NIV

For the sending of the Holy Spirit to supply the want of Christ’s bodily presence, to carry on his undertaking, and to prepare things for his second coming.

I bless you that when the Lord Jesus went away, he sent his people another Counselor to be with them forever – the Spirit of truth, John 14:16-17(NIV) who will bring glory to the Son by taking what is his and making it known to them. John 16:14(NIV)

That being exalted to the right hand of God and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, Acts 2:33(NIV) he has poured it out as streams of living water. John 7:38(NIV)

Blessed be God for the signs, wonders, and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, with which he testified to the great salvation. Hebrews 2:3-4(NIV)

And blessed be God for the promise that as earthly parents, though they are evil, know how to give good gifts to their children, so my Father in heaven will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him, Luke 11:13(NIV) that promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing my inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession. Ephesians 1:13-14(NIV)
