Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Sweet Communion with Him in Holy Ordinances

Thanksgiving 4.38 | KJV

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

I have been abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house, and thou hast made me drink of the river of thy pleasures: for with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light I shall see light. Psalm 36:8-9(KJV)

Thou hast brought me to thy holy mountain and made me joyful in thy house of prayer; Isaiah 56:7(KJV) and I found it good for me to draw near to God. Psalm 73:28(KJV)

I have reason to say that a day in thy courts is better than a thousand, 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 will give grace and glory, and no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly: O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee. Psalm 84:10-12(KJV)

I have sitten down under thy shadow with delight, and thy fruit hath been sweet unto my taste; thou hast brought me into the banqueting house, and thy banner over me has been love. Song of Solomon 2:3-4(KJV)
