“A sincere representation of holy affections” by Matthew Henry

“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.”

–Matthew Henry, A Method For Prayer: Freedom in the Face of God. Ed. J. Ligon Duncan (Geanies House, Fearn, Ross-shire, Scotland, Great Britain: Christian Focus, 1994), 11.
