Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Thanksgiving 4.18 | KJV

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

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

I thank thee for the gracious invitation he gave to those who are weary and heavy laden to come to him for rest: Matthew 11:28(KJV) And for the assurance he hath given that whosoever comes unto him, he will in nowise cast him out. John 6:37(KJV)

That he made a gracious offer, that whosoever thirst might come unto him and drink. John 7:37(KJV)
