Book Description

Most evangelical Christians know of Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Bible, but few are as familiar with his A Method for Prayer, with Scripture Expressions Proper To Be Used Under Each Head. This work consists almost entirely of Scripture, arranged under various headings, to help Christians to pray in harmony with the truth of God, revealed in his Word. First published three hundred years ago, it has been revised and updated by O. Palmer Robertson to allow the language of prayer to be expressed in today’s idiom. It is sent out in the confidence that God will continue to honour his own Word, as it is redirected back to him in the form of heartfelt prayer.

  1. Cole Spears

    One of the most helpful books I own, it is devotional, rich, and theologically deep; and of course, nearly straight Scripture, placing it into tangible ways to pray it.

  2. Ben Keller

    I’ve had the pleasure of corresponding with O. Palmer Robertson directly to thank him for undertaking the task of updating Matthew Henry’s work for today’s reader. I have used this book literally dozens of times for leading prayer at our church, in our youth group, as well as in personal and family devotions. Are you stuck in your prayer life? Let Robertson – echoing Henry – lift your spirits by praying the very words of scripture. A priceless volume.

  3. Tom Pfeil

    Powerful, Awesome, Weighty. I keep this very close to my Bible, for in it are arranged prayers from Scripture arranged topically. Henry weaves the OT with the NT to compile these prayers, teaching us that our heart’s longings and requests are found in God’s word, for He knows our hearts!

    This is a MUST purchase!

  4. MG Lopez

    Just received my copy a few days ago and what a gem it is!
    I’ve had many prayer books but this one is phenomenal, extraordinary, a must have for anyone who wants to stimulate and amplify their prayer life. I wasted no time to put it to use and the peace within and without is strong evidence that this prayer book was heaven sent. These are the kind of prayers we need for just a time as this world is in.
    To G-d alone be all the glory!

    If you are familiar with the A.C.T.S. method of prayer, you can easily relate to Henry’s points and pattern. This book is divided into nine chapters: Praise, Confession, Petition, Thanksgiving, Intercession, Prayers for Particular Occasions, Concluding our Prayers, The Lord’s Prayer Expanded, and Shorter Forms of Prayer. It also includes a short summary of prayer topics, an expanded summary of prayer topics, and a subject index, all of which are very helpful.

    What I love most about this book is that it is literally saturated with Scripture. Every page you turn is filled with passages that will help you pray the Scripture. It is also meticulously organized under various themes to guide Christians in praying in alignment with the truth revealed in God’s Word. By categorizing biblical passages, it enables believers to structure their prayers based on scriptural principles, ensuring their supplications and praises resonate with biblical truth.

    In terms of the book’s physical construction, Banner of Truth consistently delivers with excellence. This book is sewn-bound in a cloth-over-board cover with a beautiful matching dust jacket. It also features highly opaque premium cream paper and includes a satin ribbon marker.

    As ageless as prayer is, this work by Matthew Henry is a treasure trove of heavenly blessings. O. Palmer Robertson did an exceptional job in editing this for the modern reader, ensuring that it will endure and stay relevant for years to come. If you want to enrich your prayer life and learn to pray the Scriptures, this book will do wonders for your prayer and spiritual life!
