A method for prayer, compiled and arranged from M. Henry, by G. Palmer

by Matthew Henry

Excerpt:

The things of the Spirit of God are foolishness to the natural man, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

We have set our affections on things beneath, which should have been set on things above, where our treasure is, and where Christ sits on the right hand of God.

As a fountain casteth out her waters, so do our hearts cast out wickedness; and this hath been our manner from our youth up, that we have not obeyed Thy voice.

We have been ready to judge our brother, and to set at naught our brother, forgetting that we must all shortly stand before the judgment seat of Christ

PETITION.

O Lord, remember not the sins of our youth, nor our transgressions; according to Thy mercy remember Thou us, for Thy goodness' sake, O Lord.

Heal us, and we shall be healed; save us, and we shall be saved; for Thou art our praise. Be not angry with us for ever, but receive us again, that Thy people may rejoice in Thee. Show us Thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us Thy salvation.

Let the flesh be crucified in us, with its affections and lusts; that walking in the Spirit we may not fulfil the lusts of the flesh.

Give us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ, that the eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.

THANKSGIVING.

We will sing unto the Lord a new song, and His praise in the congregation of saints; O let Israel rejoice in Him that made him, let the children of Zion be joyful in their King; let the saints be joyful in glory, and let the high praises of God be in their hearts, and in their mouths.

Thou hast laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever, and settest bounds to the waters of the sea, that they turn not again to cover the earth; Thou hast shut up the sea with doors, and broken up for it Thy decreed place, saying, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no farther, here shall thy proud waves be stayed.

Thou hast given Thine angels charge concerning us, to keep us in all our ways, to bear us up in their hands, lest we dash our foot against a stone. And they are all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation.

Thou hast given us all things richly to enjoy, and into our hands hast brought plentifully.

INTERCESSION.

Be Thou the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of those that are afar upon the sea; and let them have the blessing which came upon the head of Joseph, and upon the crown of the head of him that was separated from his brethren, even to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills.

Create peace to those that are afar off, as well as to those that are nigh.

And let those that suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand, call the people to the mountain, that they may offer sacrifices of righteousness.

O that we may see the good of the gospel Jerusalem all the days of our life, and peace upon Israel.

Now, speak, Lord, for Thy servants hear. What saith our Lord unto His servants? Grant that we may not turn our ear from hearing the law; for then our prayers will be an abomination, but may hearken unto God, that He may hearken unto us. Amen.

NOTES FOR SPECIAL PRAYER.

Eigbtb Das.

CONFESSION.

WE have sinned, Father, against Heaven, and before Thee; we have all sinned, and come short of the glory of God; for the God in whose hand our breath is, and whose are all our ways, have we not glorified.
