Matthew Henry Monday


Every Monday ws harbor likes to dedicate a post to Matthew Henry. 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.

I must pray for faith.

Lord, let it be granted to me to believe; Philippians 1:29 (ESV) for the faith by which I am saved is not my own doing, it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8 (ESV)

Lord, increase my faith, Luke 17:5 (ESV) and supply what is lacking in it, 1 Thessalonians 3:10 (ESV) that I may grow strong in faith, as I give glory to God. Romans 4:20 (ESV)

Lord, give me so to be crucified with Christ, as that the life I may now live in the flesh, I may live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me; Galatians 2:20 (ESV) and so to carry in me continually the death of Jesus, as that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in my mortal body. 2 Corinthians 4:10 (ESV)

As I have received Christ Jesus the Lord, enable me so also to walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as I was taught, abounding in thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6-7 (ESV)

Let every word of yours benefit me, being united by faith, Hebrews 4:2 (ESV) by which I receive your testimony and set my seal to this: that God is true. John 3:33 (ESV)

I beg you, work in me that faith which is the assurance of things hoped for and the conviction of things not seen, Hebrews 11:1 (ESV) by which I may look above the things that are seen, that are transient, and may look at the things that are unseen, that are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 (ESV)

Enable me by faith to set the LORD always before me, Psalm 16:8 (ESV) and to have my eyes ever towards him, Psalm 25:15 (ESV) that I may act in everything, as seeing him who is invisible, and may look to the reward. Hebrews 11:26-27 (ESV)

Let my heart be cleansed by faith, Acts 15:9 (ESV) and let it be my victory to overcome the world; 1 John 5:4 (ESV) and let me be kept from fainting by believing that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13 (ESV)
