Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Cross of Christ and All Its Benefits

Thanksgiving 4.19 | NASB

For the full satisfaction which He 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 demonstrates His own love toward me, in that while I was yet a sinner, Christ died for me, Romans 5:8(NASB) that I might be reconciled to Him through the death of His Son. Romans 5:10(NASB) In this 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(NASB) and not for mine only, but for those of the whole world; 1 John 2:2(NASB) that He tasted death for everyone, Hebrews 2:9(NASB) that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil. Hebrews 2:14(NASB)

I bless You that by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified; Hebrews 10:14(NASB) that He has finished transgression, made an end of sin, made atonement for iniquity, and has brought in an everlasting righteousness. Daniel 9:24(NASB)

That He has redeemed me from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for me. Galatians 3:13(NASB)

That what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God has 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(NASB)

That He was pierced through for my transgressions and crushed for my iniquities; that the chastening for my well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging I am healed; and that the LORD, having caused the iniquity of all His people to fall on Him, Isaiah 53:5-6(NASB) was pleased to crush Him and put Him to grief. Isaiah 53:10(NASB)
