Method for Prayer by Matthew Henry
In returning thanks after our meat.
Now we have eaten and are full, we bless thee for the good land thou hast given us. Deuteronomy 8:10(KJV) Thou preparest a table for us in the presence of our enemies, thou anointest our head, and our cup runs over. Psalm 23:5(KJV)
Thou, Lord, art the portion of our inheritance and of our cup, thou maintainest our lot, so that we have reason to say, The lines are fallen to us in pleasant places, and we have a goodly heritage. Psalm 16:5-6(KJV)
Especially we bless thee for the bread of life, which came down from heaven, which was given for the life of the world: Lord, evermore give us that bread John 6:33-34(KJV) and wisdom to labour less for the meat which perisheth, and more for that which endures to everlasting life. John 6:27(KJV)
Let us be of those blessed ones that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God Luke 14:15(KJV) and shall eat of the hidden manna.
