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 put out the smoldering wick, nor broken off the battered reed, Matthew 12:20(NASB) nor despised the day of small things; Zechariah 4:10(NASB) but having obtained help from God, I stand to this day. Acts 26:22(NASB)

On the day I called, You answered me; and have made me bold with strength in my soul. Psalm 138:3(NASB)

I have been continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand, Psalm 73:23(NASB) when my feet came close to stumbling, and my steps had almost slipped. Psalm 73:2(NASB)

I have reason never to forget Your precepts, for by them You have revived me; and if Your law had not been my delight, then I would have perished in my affliction many a time; Psalm 119:92-93(NASB) for Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage. Psalm 119:54(NASB)

If the Lord had not been my help, my soul would soon have dwelt in the abode of silence: But when I said, “My foot has slipped,” Your lovingkindness, O LORD, held me up; and when my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul. Psalm 94:17-19(NASB)
