Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Ministry and Other Ordinances

Thanksgiving 4.29 | NASB

For the institution of ordinances, and particularly that of the ministry.

I thank You that You have not only declared Your words to Jacob, but Your statutes and ordinances to Israel, to Your people: You have not dealt thus with other nations; and as for Your ordinances, they have not known them. Psalm 147:19-20(NASB)

That the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them; Revelation 21:3(NASB) and that He has set His sanctuary in their midst forever, Ezekiel 37:26(NASB) and there will meet with the sons of Israel. Exodus 29:43(NASB)

I thank You that You have made known to me Your holy Sabbaths, Nehemiah 9:14(NASB) and that there still remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. Hebrews 4:9(NASB)

And that when the Lord Jesus ascended on high He gave gifts to men, Ephesians 4:8(NASB) not only prophets, apostles, and evangelists, but pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until all the people of God attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ; Ephesians 4:11-13(NASB) and that while they teach Your people to observe all that Christ has commanded, He has promised to be with them always, to the end of the age. Matthew 28:20(NASB)
