Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Christ’s Resurrection

Thanksgiving 4.21 | NIV

For his resurrection from the dead on the third day.

I thank you that as he was delivered over to death for my sins, so he was raised to life for my justification, Romans 4:25(NIV) and was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead. Romans 1:4(NIV)

That though he was dead, yet he is alive and lives for ever and ever, and holds the keys of death and Hades; Revelation 1:18(NIV) and since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. Romans 6:9(NIV)

That Christ has indeed been raised from the dead and is the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep; 1 Corinthians 15:20(NIV) that as in Adam all died, so in Christ all might be made alive, and each in his own turn. 1 Corinthians 15:22-23(NIV)

That God would not let his Holy One see decay, Acts 2:27(NIV) but freed him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him, Acts 2:24(NIV) and so declared to all the house of Israel that God has made this Jesus, whom they crucified, both Lord and Christ. Acts 2:36(NIV)

And that for this very reason Christ died and returned to life, so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living, Romans 14:9(NIV) and that whether I am awake or asleep, I might live together with him. 1 Thessalonians 5:10(NIV)
