Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Scriptures

Thanksgiving 4.28 | NIV

For the writing of the Scriptures and the preserving of them pure and entire to our day.

I thank you that I have the Scriptures to study, and that in them I have eternal life, for it is they that testify about Christ; John 5:39(NIV) and that all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:16(NIV)

That everything that was written in the past was written to teach me, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures I might have hope; Romans 15:4(NIV) and that I have this most certain word of the prophets, as a light shining in a dark place. 2 Peter 1:19(NIV)

That the vision has not become to me words sealed in a scroll, Isaiah 29:11(NIV) but that I hear the wonders of God in my own tongue. Acts 2:11(NIV)

I thank you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that the things which were hidden from the wise and learned, and which many prophets and kings desired to see, but did not, 1 Peter 1:10(NIV) are revealed to little children like myself. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure. Luke 10:21(NIV)
