Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Commend Yourself to the Grace of God

Conclusion 6.3 | ESV

We may then recommend ourselves to the conduct, protection, and government of the divine grace, in the further services that lie before us and in the whole course of our life.

And now, let me be enabled to go from strength to strength, until I appear before God in Zion; and while I pass through the valley of Baca, let it be made a place of springs, and let the rain of divine grace and blessing fill the pools. Psalm 84:6-7(ESV)

Now speak, Lord, for your servant hears. 1 Samuel 3:9(ESV) What does my Lord say to his servant? Joshua 5:14(ESV) Grant that I may not turn away my ear from hearing the law, for then my prayers would be an abomination; Proverbs 28:9(ESV) but may I listen to God, that he may listen to me. Judges 9:7(ESV)

And now, the LORD my God be with me, as he was with all my fathers in the faith; may he not leave me or forsake me, that he may incline my heart to himself, to walk in all his ways and to keep his commandments, his statutes, and his rules. 1 Kings 8:57-58(ESV) And let my heart be wholly true to the LORD my God all my days, 1 Kings 8:61(ESV) and continue so till the end; that then I may rest and may stand in my allotted place, and let it be a blessed place at the end of the days. Daniel 12:13(ESV)
