Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Early Indication of His Gracious Design

Thanksgiving 4.13 | KJV

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

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

And that by faith the elders, though they received not the promise Hebrews 11:39(KJV) yet obtained a good report; Hebrews 11:2(KJV) for they obtained witness that they were righteous. Hebrews 11:4(KJV)

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