Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Commend Yourself to the Grace of God

Conclusion 6.3 | NASB

I may then recommend myself to the conduct, protection, and government of the divine grace, in the further services that lie before me and in the whole course of my 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 spring, and let the rain of divine grace cover it with blessings. Psalm 84:6-7(NASB)

Now speak, LORD, for Your servant is listening. 1 Samuel 3:9(NASB) What has my Lord to say to His servant? Joshua 5:14(NASB) Grant that I may not turn away my ear from listening to the law, for then my prayers would be an abomination; Proverbs 28:9(NASB) but may I listen to God, that He may listen to me. Judges 9:7(NASB)

And now, may the LORD my God be with me, as He was with 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 and His statutes and His ordinances. 1 Kings 8:57-58(NASB) And let my heart be wholly devoted to the LORD my God all my days, 1 Kings 8:61(NASB) and continue so till the end; that then I may enter into rest and may rise again for my allotted portion, and let it be a blessed portion at the end of the days. Daniel 12:13(NASB)
