Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Beg for the Forgiveness of What has been Amiss in your Prayers

Conclusion 6.2 | NIV

I may then beg for the forgiveness of what has been amiss in my prayers.

Lord, I have not prayed as I ought: Romans 8:26(NIV) who is there who does what is right and never sins? Ecclesiastes 7:20(NIV) Even when I want to do good, evil is right there with me, Romans 7:21(NIV) for I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out: For the good I want to do is not what I do; Romans 7:18-19(NIV) so that you might justly refuse to listen, even if I offer many prayers. Isaiah 1:15(NIV) But I have a great High Priest, who bears the guilt involved in the sacred gifts the Israelites consecrate, whatever their gifts may be; Exodus 28:38(NIV) for his sake, forgive all the sin and guilt of your people, even all the guilt of my sacred gifts, and receive me graciously, Hosea 14:2(NIV) and love me freely, Hosea 14:4(NIV) and do not deal with me according to my folly. Job 42:8(NIV)
