Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Planting His Church in the World

Thanksgiving 4.30 | KJV

For the planting of the Christian religion in the world and the setting up of the gospel-church, in despite of all the opposition of the powers of darkness.

I thank thee that the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, and the gospel which was made known to all nations for the obedience of faith, Romans 16:25-26(KJV) was mighty through God to the pulling down of the strong-holds: 2 Corinthians 10:4(KJV) That the Lord wrought with it and confirmed the word by signs following, Mark 16:20(KJV) so that Satan fell as lightning from heaven. Luke 10:18(KJV)

That though the gospel was preached in much contention, 1 Thessalonians 2:2(KJV) yet it grew and prevailed mightily, Acts 19:20(KJV) and multitudes turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven. 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10(KJV)

Now came salvation and strength and the kingdom of God and the power of his Christ: Revelation 12:10(KJV) And the exalted Redeemer rode forth with his bow and with his crown, conquering and to conquer, Revelation 6:2(KJV) and nations were born at once. Isaiah 66:8(KJV)
