Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for your Successes and Good Relationships

Thanksgiving 4.8 | NIV

For success in my calling and affairs, comfort in relations, and comfortable places of abode.

It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect, Psalm 18:32(NIV) who has blessed the work of my hands; Job 1:10(NIV) and it may be that so prosperous will my future be, that my beginning will seem humble. Job 8:7(NIV)

My home has been safe and free from fear, and there has been no rod of God upon me; Job 21:9(NIV) so that shouts of joy and victory have resounded in my tent from day to day. Psalm 118:15(NIV)

It may be I had only my staff when I crossed this Jordan, but now I have become two groups; Genesis 32:10(NIV) and it is God who sets the lonely in families. Psalm 68:6(NIV)

If I have enjoyed life with my relations, Ecclesiastes 9:9(NIV) and they have been to me as a loving doe, as a graceful deer, Proverbs 5:19(NIV) I must give you thanks for it; for every creature is that to me, and no more, that you make it to be.
