Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Early Indication of His Gracious Design

Thanksgiving 4.13 | ESV

For the early and ancient indication of the gracious design concerning fallen man.

I bless you that as soon as man had sinned, it was graciously promised that the seed of the woman should break the serpent’s head; Genesis 3:15(ESV) and that in the Old Testament sacrifices, Jesus Christ was the lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Revelation 13:8(ESV)

And that by faith the people of old, though they did not receive what was promised, Hebrews 11:39(ESV) yet received their commendation; Hebrews 11:2(ESV) for they were commended as righteous. Hebrews 11:4(ESV)

I bless you for the promise made to Abraham, that in his seed all the families of the earth should be blessed; Genesis 12:3(ESV) and to Jacob, that the Shiloh should come, and to him should be the obedience of the peoples; Genesis 49:10(ESV) and that the Patriarchs rejoiced to see Christ’s day, and they saw it and were glad. John 8:56(ESV)
