Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Powerful Influences of Divine Grace

Thanksgiving 4.37 | KJV

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

Thou hast not quenched the smoking flax, nor broke the bruised reed, Matthew 12:20(KJV) nor despised the day of small things; Zechariah 4:10(KJV) but having obtained help of God, I continue hitherto. Acts 26:22(KJV)

In the day when I cried thou answered me, and hast strengthened me with strength in my soul. Psalm 138:3(KJV)

I have been continually with thee, thou hast holden me by the right hand, Psalm 73:23(KJV) when my feet were almost gone, and my steps had well nigh slipped. Psalm 73:2(KJV)

I have reason never to forget thy precepts, for by them thou hast quickened me; and unless thy law had been my delight, I should many a time have perished in my affliction; Psalm 119:92-93(KJV) for thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage. Psalm 119:54(KJV)

Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence: But when I said, My foot slippeth, thy mercy, O Lord, held me up; and in the multitude of my thoughts within me, thy comforts have been the delight of my soul. Psalm 94:17-19(KJV)
