Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Plead with God His Promises of Pardon

Petition 3.4 | NASB

The promises God has made in His word to pardon and absolve all those who truly repent and unfeignedly believe His holy gospel.

Lord, is not this the word which You have spoken: that if the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and return to the LORD, even to my God, that You will abundantly pardon, Isaiah 55:7(NASB) will multiply to pardon?

To You, the Lord my God, belong compassion and forgiveness, for I have rebelled against You. Daniel 9:9(NASB)

Is not this the covenant which You have made with the house of Israel: that You will take away their sins; Romans 11:27(NASB) that You will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more; Jeremiah 31:34(NASB) that search will be made for the iniquity of Israel, but there will be none, and for the sins of Judah, but they will not be found? Jeremiah 50:20(NASB)

Have You not said that if a wicked man will turn from all his sins that he has committed and keep Your statutes, he shall live; he shall not die; all his transgressions shall not be remembered against him? Ezekiel 33:15-16(NASB)

Have You not appointed that repentance for forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in Christ’s name to all the nations? Luke 24:47(NASB)

Did You not promise that when the sins of Israel were put upon the head of the scapegoat, they should be sent away into the wilderness, into a solitary land? Leviticus 16:22(NASB) And as far as the east is from the west, so far do You remove my transgressions from me. Psalm 103:12(NASB)

O remember these words to Your servant, in which You have made me hope. Psalm 119:49(NASB)
