Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Wonderful Incarnation of the Son of God

Thanksgiving 4.15 | NIV

For the wonderful and mysterious incarnation of the Son of God and his coming into the world.

I bless you that when the time had fully come, you sent your Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that your people might receive the full rights of sons. Galatians 4:4-5(NIV)

That the eternal Word became flesh and made his dwelling among men, and there were those who saw his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14(NIV) Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great, that God appeared in a body. 1 Timothy 3:16(NIV)

I bless you that for this reason he was born and for this he came into the world, to testify to the truth; John 18:37(NIV) and I believe and am sure that he is the Holy One of God; John 6:69(NIV) that it is he who should come, and I am to look for no other.

I bless you that the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost; Luke 19:10(NIV) that he has come that I may have life, and have it to the full; John 10:10(NIV) and that the reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. 1 John 3:8(NIV)

Lord, I receive it as a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners – even the worst. 1 Timothy 1:15(NIV)

I bless you that since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity: Hebrews 2:14(NIV) That it is not angels he helps, but his people, and was made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful High Priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people; Hebrews 2:16-17(NIV) and that he is not ashamed to call them brothers. Hebrews 2:11(NIV)

And that the firstborn was brought into the world with a charge given to all God’s angels to worship him. Hebrews 1:6(NIV)
