Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Plead with God your Misery Because of Sin, Along with the Blessed Condition of Pardoned Sinners

Petition 3.5 | KJV

My own misery and danger because of sin.

For thy name’s sake, O Lord, pardon my iniquity, for it is great; Psalm 25:11(KJV) for innumerable evils have compassed me about, my iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up. Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me; O Lord, make haste to help me. Psalm 40:12-13(KJV)

O remember not against me former iniquities, let thy tender mercy speedily prevent me, for I am brought very low. Help me, O God of my salvation, for the glory of thy name; deliver me, and purge away my sins, for thy name’s sake. Psalm 79:8-9(KJV)

Remember not the sins of my youth nor my transgressions; according to thy mercy remember thou me, for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord. Psalm 25:7(KJV)

The blessed condition which they are in whose sins are pardoned.

O let me have the blessedness of those whose transgression is forgiven, and whose sin is covered; of that man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. Psalm 32:1-2(KJV)

O let me have redemption through Christ’s blood, even the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of thy grace, wherein thou hast abounded towards me in all wisdom and prudence. Ephesians 1:7-8(KJV) That being in Christ Jesus, there may be no condemnation to me. Romans 8:1(KJV)

That my sins, which are many, being forgiven me, Luke 7:47(KJV) I may go in peace: Luke 7:50(KJV) And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick, if the people that dwell therein be forgiven their iniquity. Isaiah 33:24(KJV)
