Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Powerful Influences of Divine Grace

Thanksgiving 4.37 | NIV

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.

You have not snuffed out the smoldering wick, nor broken the bruised reed, Matthew 12:20(NIV) nor despised the day of small things; Zechariah 4:10(NIV) but having had God’s help to this very day, I remain standing. Acts 26:22(NIV)

In the day when I called, you answered me; you have made me bold and stouthearted. Psalm 138:3(NIV)

I have always been with you; you have held me by my right hand, Psalm 73:23(NIV) when my feet had almost slipped, and I had nearly lost my foothold. Psalm 73:2(NIV)

I have reason never to forget your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life; and if your law had not been my delight, I would have many a time perished in my affliction; Psalm 119:92-93(NIV) for your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge. Psalm 119:54(NIV)

Unless the Lord had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death: But when I said, “My foot is slipping,” your love, O LORD, supported me; and when anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul. Psalm 94:17-19(NIV)
