Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Reconciliation with God that you may Know His Peace

Petition 3.6 | NASB

I must likewise pray that God will be reconciled to me, that I may obtain His favor and blessing and gracious acceptance.

That I may be at peace with God and His anger may be turned away from me.

Having been justified by faith, let me have peace with God through my Lord Jesus Christ, and through Him let me obtain my introduction into that grace in which believers stand, and exult in hope of the glory of God. Romans 5:1-2(NASB)

Do not be a terror to me, for You are my refuge in the day of disaster. Jeremiah 17:17(NASB)

In Christ Jesus let me, who formerly was far off, be brought near by the blood of Christ; for He Himself is His people’s peace, who has broken down the barrier of the dividing wall, and, that he might reconcile me to God through His cross, has put to death the enmity, thus establishing peace. Through Him, therefore, let me, who has made myself a stranger and an alien, become a fellow citizen with the saints, and of God’s household. Ephesians 2:13-19(NASB)

You have no wrath: Should someone give You briars and thorns in battle, You would burn them completely; yes, You would burn them completely; but You have encouraged me to rely on Your protection, that I make peace, and have promised that I shall make peace. Isaiah 27:4-5(NASB) O let me therefore yield and be at peace with You, that thereby good may come to me. Job 22:21(NASB)

Heal me, and I will be healed; save me, and I will be saved, for You are my praise. Jeremiah 17:14(NASB) Do not be angry with me forever but revive me again, that I may rejoice in You. Show me Your lovingkindness, O LORD, and grant me Your salvation. Psalm 85:5-7(NASB)
