Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Plead with God His Promises of Pardon

Petition 3.4 | KJV

The promises God hath made in his word to pardon and absolve all them that truly repent and unfeignedly believe his holy gospel.

Lord, is not this the word which thou hast spoken, that if the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and return unto the Lord, even to my God, that thou wilt abundantly pardon, Isaiah 55:7(KJV) wilt multiply to pardon?

To thee, the Lord my God, belong mercies and forgivenesses, though I have rebelled against thee. Daniel 9:9(KJV)

Is not this the covenant which thou hast made with the house of Israel, that thou wilt take away their sins; Romans 11:27(KJV) that thou wilt forgive their iniquity and remember their sin no more; Jeremiah 31:34(KJV) that the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none, and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found? Jeremiah 50:20(KJV)

Hast thou not said that if the wicked will turn from all his sins which he hath committed and keep thy statutes, he shall live, he shall not die, all his transgressions shall not be mentioned unto him? Ezekiel 33:15-16(KJV)

Hast thou not appointed that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in Christ’s name unto all nations? Luke 24:47(KJV)

Didst thou not promise that when the sins of Israel were put upon the head of the scape-goat, they should be sent away into the wilderness, into a land not inhabited? Leviticus 16:22(KJV) And as far as the east is from the west, so far dost thou remove my transgressions from me. Psalm 103:12(KJV)

O remember these words unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope. Psalm 119:49(KJV)
