About:

Edited by Ligon Duncan. True prayer comes from the heart, so why do we need a method? The great devotional commentator and pastor shows here that Christians benefit from discipline just as much as talking freely with God. You will discover the methods Jesus taught, look at styles of prayer, and see helpful examples. Duncan has incorporated some of Henry's other work on prayer.

Ligon Duncan has edited the original text to make it more accessible to the modern reader. He has also added Henry's sermons on prayer, his advice on spending time each day in prayer, outlines for scriptural prayer, and advice on leading in public prayer. The Scripture references are from the King James Version.

 

Endorsements: 

"Matthew Henry is a treasured gift to the church who speaks to all generations in all places. To sit at his feet is to be served a rich banquet. To study his Method for Prayer is to drink from a deep artesian well. Wise is the one who plunges themselves into this storehouse of truth." - Steve Lawson

"When a tool that has helped teach Christians to pray with biblical fidelity and spiritual integrity, across a span of three centuries, is being distributed again and in fresh ways, thoughtful believers can only applaud and give thanks to God for the grace that has brought forth this fruit." - Don Carson

"Whether the reader is looking for a guide to public prayer or an encouragement to private prayer, Henry’s work is a key text, drawing the mind again and again to Scripture as it seeks to shape our prayer life by the forms and priorities of God’s own revelation of Himself." - Carl Trueman

"Prayer is an amazing privilege, but it’s also a discipline for which we need direction and instruction. Like a trellis, Henry’s Method for Prayer helps us to grow up in a Godward direction, not only to think more biblically, but to pray more biblically as well." - Michael Horton

"This book is a classic resource for learning how to pray according to biblical priorities, and for being re-inspired to pray with a heart for God’s purposes. The work is timeless because Henry’s words are so resonant with the heavenly themes that enable us to face earthly trials." - Bryan Chapell
