Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Thanksgiving 4.3 | NASB

The heavens are Your heavens, O LORD, but the earth You have given to the sons of men; Psalm 115:16(NASB) and You have put all things under their feet, and made them to rule over the works of Your hands; Psalm 8:6(NASB) so that the fear of man and the terror of man is on every beast of the earth and on every bird of the sky, and into his hand they are given; Genesis 9:2(NASB) because You had a favor to him and had Your delight in the sons of men. Proverbs 8:31(NASB)

You cause the grass to grow for the cattle, and vegetation for the labor of man, so that You may bring forth food from the earth, and wine which makes man’s heart glad, so that he may make his face to glisten with oil, and food which sustains his heart. Psalm 104:14-15(NASB)

You give to all life and breath and all things; Acts 17:25(NASB) and the earth is full of Your lovingkindess, O LORD. Psalm 119:64(NASB)

All the creatures wait for You to give them their food in due season. You give to them, they gather it up; You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good. Psalm 104:27-28(NASB) You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; and You renew the face of the ground. This Your glory shall endure forever, and You rejoice in these works. Psalm 104:30-31(NASB)

It is through Your goodness, O Lord, that as one generation of mankind goes, another generation comes; Ecclesiastes 1:4(NASB) and that You have not blotted out the name of that corrupt and guilty race from under heaven. Deuteronomy 29:20(NASB)
