Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Sweet Communion with Him in Holy Ordinances

Thanksgiving 4.38 | NIV

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

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

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

I have reason to say that one day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere, and that I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked; for the LORD God is a sun and shield; he bestows favor and honor, and no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless: O LORD Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you. Psalm 84:10-12(NIV)

I have delighted to sit in your shade, and your fruit has been sweet to my taste; you have taken me to the banquet hall, and your banner over me has been love. Song of Solomon 2:3-4(NIV)
