Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Consider your Evil Sins in Light of the Mercies and Warnings of God

Confession 2.16 | NASB

The more mercies I have received from God, the greater has been my sin.

You have reared and brought me up as a son, but I have revolted against You. Isaiah 1:2(NASB)

I have ill repaid You, O LORD, as a foolish and unwise person: You are my Father who made me and bought me and established me, yet my mark has not been the mark of one of Your children. Deuteronomy 32:5-6(KJV)

I have not given a return for the benefit I have received. 2 Chronicles 32:25(NASB)

The fairer warning I have had from the word of God and from my own conscience concerning my danger of sin and danger by sin, the greater is the sin if I go on in it.

I have received much reproof, and yet have hardened my neck, Proverbs 29:1(NASB) and have gone on turning away, in the way of my heart. Isaiah 57:17(NASB)

You have sent to me, saying, “Oh, do not do this abominable thing which I hate”; but I have not listened nor inclined my ear. Jeremiah 44:4-5(NASB)

The word of God has been to me order on order and line on line; Isaiah 28:13(NASB) and though I have looked at my natural face in the mirror, yet I have gone away and immediately forgotten what kind of person I was. James 1:23-24(NASB)
