Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Conclusion 6.1 | NIV

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

Now may the God of Israel grant me what I have asked of him. 1 Samuel 1:17(NIV)

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

May your eyes be open to your servant’s plea and to the plea of your people Israel, and may you listen to them whenever they cry out to you, for they are your people and your inheritance. 1 Kings 8:51-52(NIV)

O my God, may your ears be attentive to the prayers that I have offered: 2 Chronicles 6:40(NIV) O do not reject your anointed One; remember the great love promised to David your servant, 2 Chronicles 6:42(NIV) even Jesus, who is at your right hand and is also interceding for me. Romans 8:34(NIV)

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