For those who are at the Point of Death

Method for Prayer by Matthew Henry

(If they be in appearance at the point of death.)

Now the flesh and the heart are failing, Lord, be thou the strength of the heart, and an everlasting portion: Psalm 73:26(KJV) In the valley of the shadow of death, Lord be thou present, as the good Shepherd, with a guiding rod and a supporting staff. Psalm 23:4(KJV) O do not fail them, nor forsake them now: Hebrews 13:5(KJV) Be a very present help. Psalm 46:1(KJV) Into thy hands we commit the departing spirit, Psalm 31:5(KJV) as into the hands of a faithful Creator, 1 Peter 4:19(KJV) by the hands of him who has redeemed it. Let it be carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom. Luke 16:22(KJV) Let it be presented to thee without spot or wrinkle or any such thing. Ephesians 5:22(KJV) Lord Jesus, receive this precious soul; Acts 7:59(KJV) let it come to the spirits of just men made perfect; Hebrews 12:23(KJV) when it is absent from the body, let it be present with the Lord! 2 Corinthians 5:8(KJV) This day let it be with thee in paradise. Luke 23:43(KJV) Now let it be for ever comforted Luke 16:25(KJV) and perfectly freed from sin. Romans 6:7(KJV) And prepare us to draw after, as there are innumerable before, Job 21:33(KJV) that we may be together for ever with the Lord, 1 Thessalonians 4:17(KJV)there where there shall be no more death, and where all tears shall be wiped away. Revelation 21:4(KJV)
