In the first of the two works included in this volume, Matthew Henry teaches the elements of prayer using exclusively Bible phrases. The reader will draw spiritual nourishment from the copious examples of prayer under the headings of adoration, confession, petition, thanksgiving, intercession, and the conclusion of prayer. The first work also includes a reflection on the Lord's Prayer, again drawing on Scriptural expressions, plus Biblical prayers for use on particular occasions. The second work reveals the importance of being with God throughout the day, from beginning to end. This edition features King James English with modern spellings and without footnotes. Prayers are printed in bold type for ease of use. Matthew Henry was born in Wales. After being admitted to Gray's Inn, he was ordained presbyterian minister of a church in Chester. His most famous work is his six-volume Commentary on the Whole Bible, work on which he interrupted to compile this volume of Bible-based prayers.
