Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Sweet Communion with Him in Holy Ordinances

Thanksgiving 4.38 | ESV

For sweet communion with God in holy ordinances, and the communications of his favor.

I have feasted on the abundance of your house, and you have given me drink from the river of your delights: for with you is the fountain of life; in your light do I see light. Psalm 36:8-9(ESV)

You have brought me to your holy mountain, and made me joyful in your house of prayer; Isaiah 56:7(ESV) and I have found for me it is good to be near God. Psalm 73:28(ESV)

I have reason to say that a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere, and that it is better to be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than to dwell in the tents of wickedness; for the LORD God is a sun and shield; he bestows favor and honor, and no good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly: O LORD of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you! Psalm 84:10-12(ESV)

I have sat down under your shadow with delight, and your fruit has been sweet to my taste; you have brought me to the banqueting house, and your banner over me has been love. Song of Solomon 2:3-4(ESV)
