Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Sweet Communion with Him in Holy Ordinances

Thanksgiving 4.38 | NASB

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

I have drunk my fill of the abundance of Your house, and You have given me drink of the river of Your delights: for with You is the fountain of life; in Your light I see light. Psalm 36:8-9(NASB)

You have brought me to Your holy mountain and made me joyful in Your house of prayer; Isaiah 56:7(NASB) and I have found that for me the nearness of God is my good. Psalm 73:28(NASB)

I have reason to say that a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside, and that it is better to stand at the threshold of the house of my God than to dwell in the tents of wickedness; for the LORD God is a sun and shield; He gives grace and glory, and no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly: O LORD of hosts, how blessed is the man who trusts in You! Psalm 84:10-12(NASB)

In Your shade I have taken great delight and sat down, and Your fruit has been sweet to my taste; You have brought me to Your banquet hall, and Your banner over me has been love. Song of Solomon 2:3-4(NASB)
