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 | NASB

My own misery and danger because of sin.

For Your name’s sake, O LORD, pardon my iniquity, for it is great; Psalm 25:11(NASB) for evils beyond number have surrounded me; my iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to see. Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me; make haste, O LORD, to help me. Psalm 40:12-13(NASB)

O do not remember the iniquities of my forefathers against me; let Your compassion come quickly to meet me, for I am brought very low. Help me, O God of my salvation, for the glory of Your name; deliver me and forgive my sins, for Your name’s sake. Psalm 79:8-9(NASB)

Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to Your lovingkindness remember me, for Your goodness’ sake, O LORD. Psalm 25:7(NASB)

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 to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. Psalm 32:1-2(NASB)

O let me have redemption through Christ’s blood, even the forgiveness of my trespasses, according to the riches of Your grace, which You have lavished on me, in all wisdom and insight. Ephesians 1:7-8(NASB) That being in Christ Jesus, there may be no condemnation for me; Romans 8:1(NASB) that my sins, which are many, having been forgiven me, Luke 7:47(NASB) I may go in peace: Luke 7:50(NASB) And no resident will say, “I am sick,” if the people who dwell there have been forgiven their iniquity. Isaiah 33:24(NASB)
