Method for Prayer by Matthew Henry
In the evening before the Lord’s Day.
Now give us to remember that tomorrow is the sabbath of the Lord Exodus 16:23(KJV) and that it is a high day, John 19:31(KJV) holy of the Lord and honourable, Isaiah 58:13(KJV) and give us grace so to sanctify ourselves, that tomorrow the Lord may do wonders among us; Joshua 3:5(KJV) and to mind the work of our preparation, now the sabbath draws on. Luke 23:54(KJV)
When thou sawedst every thing that thou hadst made in six days, behold all was very good, Genesis 1:31(KJV) but in many things we have all offended. James 3:2(KJV) O that by repentance and faith in Christ’s blood, we may wash not only our feet, but also our hands and our head John 13:9(KJV) and our heart, and so may compass thine altar, O Lord. Psalm 26:6(KJV)
Now give us to rest from all our own works Hebrews 4:10(KJV) and to leave all our worldly cares at the bottom of the hill, while we go up to the mount to worship God and return again to them.
