Method for Prayer by Matthew Henry
Plead with God His Promises of Pardon
The promises God has made in his word to pardon and absolve all those who truly repent and unfeignedly believe his holy gospel.
Lord, is not this the word which you have spoken: that if the wicked man forsakes his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and returns to the LORD, even to our God, that you will abundantly pardon, Isaiah 55:7(ESV) will multiply to pardon?
To you, the Lord our God, belong mercy and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against you. Daniel 9:9(ESV)
Is not this the covenant which you have made with the house of Israel: that you will take away their sins; Romans 11:27(ESV) that you will forgive their iniquity and remember their sin no more; Jeremiah 31:34(ESV) that iniquity shall be sought in Israel, and there shall be none, and sin in Judah, and none shall be found? Jeremiah 50:20(ESV)
Have you not said that if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he has committed, and keep your statutes, he shall live; he shall not die; all his transgressions shall not be remembered against him? Ezekiel 33:15-16(ESV)
Have you not appointed that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in Christ’s name to all nations? Luke 24:47(ESV)
Did you not promise that when the sins of Israel were put upon the head of the scapegoat, they should be sent away into the wilderness, into a remote area? Leviticus 16:22(ESV) And as far as the east is from the west, so far do you remove our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12(ESV)
O remember these words to your servants, in which you have made us hope. Psalm 119:49(ESV)
