Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Thanksgiving 4.3 | KJV

The heaven, even the heavens, are thine: but the earth thou hast given to the children of men; Psalm 115:16(KJV) and thou hast put all things under their feet, and made them to have dominion over the works of thy hands; Psalm 8:6(KJV) so that the fear of man and the dread of man is upon every beast of the earth and upon the fowl of the air, and into his hand they are delivered; Genesis 9:2(KJV) because thou hadst a favour to him, and thy delights were with the sons of men. Proverbs 8:31(KJV)

Thou causest the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that thou mayest bring forth food out of the earth; wine that makes glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengthens man’s heart. Psalm 104:14-15(KJV)

Thou givest to all life and breath and all things; Acts 17:25(KJV) and the earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy. Psalm 119:64(KJV)

All the creatures wait upon thee, that thou mayest give them their meat in due season; that thou givest them, they gather; thou openest thy hand, they are filled with good; Psalm 104:27-28(KJV) thou sendest forth thy Spirit, they are created; thou renewest the face of the earth. This thy glory shall endure for ever, and thou rejoicest in these works. Psalm 104:30-31(KJV)

It is through thy goodness, O Lord, that as one generation of mankind passeth away, another generation comes; Ecclesiastes 1:4(KJV) and that thou hast not blotted out the name of that corrupt and guilty race from under heaven. Deuteronomy 29:20(KJV)
