Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Give Glory to God for His Patience and Willingness to be Reconciled

Confession 2.19 | NASB

I must give to God the glory of His patience and long-suffering towards me and His willingness to be reconciled.

O the riches of the patience and tolerance of God! Romans 2:4(NASB) How patient He is towards me, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9(NASB)

You have not dealt with me according to my sins, nor rewarded me according to my iniquities, Psalm 103:10(NASB) but You wait to be gracious to me. Isaiah 30:18(NASB)

Sentence against my evil deeds has not been executed quickly, Ecclesiastes 8:11(NASB) but You have given me time to repent and make my peace with You, Revelation 2:21(NASB) and call even faithless sons to return to You and have promised to heal my faithlessness; and therefore, behold, I come to You, for You are the LORD my God. Jeremiah 3:22(NASB)

Surely the patience of my Lord is salvation; 2 Peter 3:15(NASB) and if the Lord had desired to kill me, He would not as at this time have shown me all these things. Judges 13:23(NASB)

And O that this kindness of God might lead me to repentance! Romans 2:4(NASB) For though I have been unfaithful to my God, yet now there is hope for Israel in spite of this. Ezra 10:2(NASB)

You have said it and have confirmed it with an oath, that You take no pleasure in the death of sinners like me, but rather that I should turn and live. Ezekiel 33:11(NASB) Therefore I will rend my heart and not my garments and return to the LORD my God; for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. Who knows whether He will not turn and relent and leave a blessing behind Him? Joel 2:13-14(NASB)
