Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Christ’s Resurrection

Thanksgiving 4.21 | KJV

For his resurrection from the dead on the third day.

I thank thee that as he was delivered for my offences, so he arose again for my justification, Romans 4:25(KJV) and was declared to be the Son of God with power, by the resurrection from the dead. Romans 1:4(KJV)

That though he was dead, yet he is alive and lives for evermore, and hath the keys of hell and death; Revelation 1:18(KJV) and being raised from the dead, he dies no more; death hath no more dominion over him. Romans 6:9(KJV)

That now is Christ risen from the dead and is become the first-fruits of them that slept; 1 Corinthians 15:20(KJV) that as in Adam all died, so in Christ all might be made alive, and every one in his own order. 1 Corinthians 15:22-23(KJV)

That God suffered not his Holy One to see corruption, Acts 2:27(KJV) but loosed the pains of death, because it was impossible he should be holden of them, Acts 2:24(KJV) and so declared to all the house of Israel, that the same Jesus whom they crucified is both Lord and Christ. Acts 2:36(KJV)

And that for this end Christ both died and rose and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living, Romans 14:9(KJV) and that whether I wake or sleep, I might live together with him. 1 Thessalonians 5:10(KJV)
