Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Cross of Christ and All Its Benefits

Thanksgiving 4.19 | KJV

For the full satisfaction which Christ made to the justice of God for the sin of man by the blood of his cross, for the purchases, victories, and triumphs of the cross, and for all the precious benefits which flow to me from the dying of the Lord Jesus.

Herein indeed God commendeth his love to me, in that while I was yet a sinner, Christ died for me, Romans 5:8(KJV) that I might be reconciled to him by the death of his Son. Romans 5:10(KJV) Herein is love, not that I loved God, but that he loved me, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for my sins, 1 John 4:10(KJV) and not for mine only but for the sins of the whole world; 1 John 2:2(KJV) that he tasted death for every man, Hebrews 2:9(KJV) that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil. Hebrews 2:14(KJV)

I bless thee that by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified; Hebrews 10:14(KJV) that he hath finished transgression, made an end of sin, made reconciliation for iniquity, and hath brought in an everlasting righteousness. Daniel 9:24(KJV)

That he hath redeemed me from the curse of the law by being made a curse for me. Galatians 3:13(KJV)

That what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God hath done by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, who by a sacrifice for sin, condemned sin in the flesh. Romans 8:3(KJV)

That he was wounded for my transgressions and bruised for my iniquities, and that the chastisement of my peace was upon him, and by his stripes I am healed: And that the Lord having laid upon him the iniquity of all his people, Isaiah 53:5-6(KJV) it pleased the Lord to bruise him and put him to grief. Isaiah 53:10(KJV)
