Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Great Encouragement Christ Gave to Poor Sinners to Come to Him

Thanksgiving 4.18 | ESV

For the great encouragement Christ gave to poor sinners to come to him.

I bless you that Jesus Christ came not to call the righteous, but sinners (such as myself) to repentance, Matthew 9:13(ESV) and had power on earth to forgive sins; Matthew 9:6(ESV) that he came to save his people from their sins, Matthew 1:21(ESV) and is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world; John 1:29(ESV) and that he is (to his honor, not to his reproach) a friend to tax collectors and sinners. Matthew 11:19(ESV)

I thank you for the gracious invitation he gave to those who are weary and heavy laden to come to him for rest: Matthew 11:28(ESV) And for the assurance he has given that whoever comes to him, he will never cast out. John 6:37(ESV)

That he made a gracious offer: that if anyone thirsts they might come to him and drink. John 7:37(ESV)
