Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Commend Yourself to the Grace of God

Conclusion 6.3 | KJV

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 well, and let the rain of the divine grace and blessing fill the pools. Psalm 84:6-7(KJV)

Now speak, Lord, for thy servant hears. 1 Samuel 3:9(KJV) What saith my Lord unto his servant? Joshua 5:14(KJV) Grant that I may not turn away my ear from hearing the law, for then my prayers will be an abomination, Proverbs 28:9(KJV) but may hearken unto God, that he may hearken unto me. Judges 9:7(KJV)

And now, the Lord my God be with me, as he was with all my fathers in the faith; let him not leave me nor forsake me, that he may incline my heart unto himself, to walk in all his ways and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments. 1 Kings 8:57-58(KJV) And let my heart be perfect with the Lord my God all my days, 1 Kings 8:61(KJV) and continue so till the end be; that then I may rest and may stand in my lot, and let it be a blessed lot in the end of the days. Daniel 12:13(KJV)
