Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Planting His Church in the World

Thanksgiving 4.30 | NASB

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

I thank You that the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the commandment of the eternal God, and the gospel which has been made known to all the nations for the obedience of faith, Romans 16:25-26(NASB) was divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses: 2 Corinthians 10:4(NASB) That the Lord worked with it and confirmed the word by the signs that followed, Mark 16:20(NASB) so that Satan fell from heaven like lightning. Luke 10:18(NASB)

That though the gospel was preached amid much opposition, 1 Thessalonians 2:2(NASB) yet it grew and prevailed mightily, Acts 19:20(NASB) 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(NASB)

Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of God and the authority of His Christ have come: Revelation 12:10(NASB) And the exalted Redeemer rode forth with His bow and with His crown, conquering and to conquer, Revelation 6:2(NASB) and nations were brought forth all at once. Isaiah 66:8(NASB)
