Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for His Eternal Purposes and Counsels Concerning Man’s Redemption

Thanksgiving 4.11 | NASB

For the eternal purposes and counsels of God concerning man’s redemption.

I should always give thanks to You, O God, because You have chosen some from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit: 2 Thessalonians 2:13(NASB) That there is a remnant according to God’s gracious choice, Romans 11:5(NASB) whom God has chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, that they would be holy and blameless before You in love, having predestined them to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Yourself, according to the kind intention of Your will, to the praise of the glory of Your grace. Ephesians 1:4-6(NASB)

Yours they were, and You gave them to Christ; John 17:6(NASB) and this is Your will: that You should lose nothing of all that You have given Him, but raise it up on the last day. John 6:39(NASB)
