Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Beg for the Acceptance of your Prayers for Christ’s Sake

Conclusion 6.1 | ESV

We may then beg for the audience and acceptance of our poor weak prayers for Christ’s sake.

Now may the God of Israel grant me the things I have requested of him. 1 Samuel 1:17(ESV)

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14(ESV)

Let your eyes be open to the plea of your servant and to the plea of your people Israel, giving ear to them whenever they call to you, for they are your people and your heritage. 1 Kings 8:51-52(ESV)

O my God, let your ears be attentive to the prayers that I have made: 2 Chronicles 6:40(ESV) O do not turn away the face of your Anointed One; remember your steadfast love for David your servant, 2 Chronicles 6:42(ESV) even Jesus, who is at your right hand interceding for me. Romans 8:34(ESV)

Lord, you have assured me that whatever I ask the Father in Christ’s name, you will give it to me. John 16:23(ESV) I ask all these things in that name, that powerful name that is above every name; Philippians 2:9(ESV) that precious name which is as oil poured out. Song of Solomon 1:3(ESV) O make your face to shine upon me, Numbers 6:25(ESV) for the Lord’s sake, Daniel 9:17(ESV) who is the Son of your love, Matthew 17:5(ESV) and whom you always hear. John 11:42(ESV) Good Lord, enable me to hear him, and be well pleased with me in him. Matthew 17:5(ESV)
