Reseña del editor:

Religion is so mucli the business of our lives, and the worship of God so much the business of our religion, that what hath a sincere intention, and probable tendency, to promote and assist the acts of religious worship, I think cannot be unacceptable to any that heartily wish well to the interest of God skingdom among men. For if we have spiritual senses exercised, true devotion, that aspiring flame of pious affection to God, as far as in a judgment of charity we discern it in others (though in different shapes and dresses, which may seem uncouth to one another) cannot but appear beautiful and amiable, and, as far as we feel it in our own breasts, cannot but be found very pleasant and comfortable. Prayer is a principal branch of religious worship, which we are moved to by the very light of nature, and obliged to by some of its fundamental laws. Pythagoras golden verses begin with this precept. Whatever men made a god of, they prayed to; Deliver me, for thou art my God, I sa. xliv. 17. Nay, whatever they prayed to, they made a god of Deos qui rogat ille facit. It is a piece of respect and homage so exactly consonant to the natural ideas which all men have of God, that it is certain, those that live without prayer, live without God in the world. Prayer is the solemn and religious offering up of devout acknowledgments and desires to God, or a sincere representation of holy affections, with a design to give unto God the glory due unto his Name thereby, and to obtain from him promised favours, and both through the Mediator. Our English word Prayer is too strait, for that properly signifies Petition or Request; whereas humble adorations of God, and thanksgivings to him, are as necessary in prayer as any other part of it. The Greek word Proseuche, from Euche, is a vow directed to God. The Latin word Votum is used for prayer. Jonah smariners, with their sacrifices,

"Ligon Duncan's editorial work has given this valuable book a new lease of life." Banner of Truth

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 Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois

The great and nearly unique benefit of Henry's Method for Prayer is that it flows so directly from the biblical text. His approach enables the believer not only to read the Bible and study the Bible, but also to pray the Bible--Philip G. Ryken President, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois

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.--D. A. Carson Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois

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 R. Trueman Paul Woolley Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Who of us hasn't had trouble with prayer at some time or another? And here is a God-sent solution: Matthew Henry's A Method for Prayer. This book is worth its weight in gold (platinum?). No one utilizing this book can fail to profit from it.--Derek Thomas Senior Minister of Preaching and Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

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 J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California, Escondido, California

It's good to see this classic on prayer in an accessible edition. Ligon Duncan has done brilliant work, adapting Matthew Henry for twenty-first century readers without sacrificing any of the depth and devotional value of the original Puritan work.--John MacArthur President, The Master's University and Seminary and Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California
