Matthew Henry Monday


Every Monday ws harbor likes to dedicate a post to Matthew Henry. Nonconformist Henry (10/18/1662 – 06/22/1714) was a commentator on the Bible and Presbyterian minister of the Gospel. We recommend his works for devotional purposes.

Pray for grace to bring God’s truth to your memory.

To help my memory, that the truths of God may be ready to me whenever I have occasion to use them.

Lord, let your Spirit teach me all things and bring to my remembrance all that you have said to me, that the word of Christ may dwell richly in me in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.

Lord, grant that I may pay much closer attention to what I have heard, lest I drift away from it;  and may I hold fast to the word that has been preached to me, and not believe in vain.

Lord, make me ready and competent in the Scriptures, that I may be competent, equipped for every good work;  and, being well trained for the kingdom of heaven, may I, like a good master of a house, bring out of my treasure what is new and what is old.
