Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Powerful Influences of Divine Grace

Thanksgiving 4.37 | ESV

For the powerful influences of divine grace to sanctify and preserve us, to prevent our falling into sin, and to strengthen us in doing our duty.

You have not quenched the smoldering wick, nor broken the bruised reed, Matthew 12:20(ESV) nor despised the day of small things; Zechariah 4:10(ESV) but having had the help of God, I continue up to this time. Acts 26:22(ESV)

On the day I called, you answered me; and my strength of soul you increased. Psalm 138:3(ESV)

I have been continually with you, you have held my right hand, Psalm 73:23(ESV) when my feet had almost stumbled and my steps had nearly slipped. Psalm 73:2(ESV)

I have reason never to forget your precepts, for by them you have given me life; and if your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction many a time; Psalm 119:92-93(ESV) for your statutes have been my songs in the house of my sojourning. Psalm 119:54(ESV)

If the Lord had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence: But when I thought, “My foot slips,” your steadfast love, O LORD, held me up; and when the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul. Psalm 94:17-19(ESV)
