Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Preserving you

Thanksgiving 4.5 | NIV

I must give thanks for my preservation; that my life is prolonged, and the use of my reason and understanding, my limbs and senses, are continued to me.

It was owing to your good providence that I did not perish at birth, and die as I came from the womb; that there were knees to receive me, and breasts that I might be nursed. Job 3:11-12(NIV)

Though I was called a rebel from birth, Isaiah 48:8(NIV) yet by your power I have been upheld since my conception and carried since my birth; Isaiah 46:3(NIV) and you preserve my life and keep my feet from slipping. Psalm 66:9(NIV)

My whole being shall exclaim, “Who is like you, O LORD?” Psalm 35:10(NIV) For you protect the bones, not one of them will be broken. Psalm 34:20(NIV)

I lie down and sleep, for you, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety. Psalm 3:5(NIV)

You have commanded your angels concerning me to guard me in all my ways; to lift me up in their hands, so that I do not strike my foot against a stone. Psalm 91:11-12(NIV) And they are all ministering spirits sent to serve for the good of those who will inherit salvation. Hebrews 1:14(NIV)
