Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Christ’s Ascension into Heaven

Thanksgiving 4.22 | ESV

For his ascension into heaven, and his sitting at God’s right hand there.

I bless you that my Lord Jesus has ascended to his Father and my Father, to his God and my God; John 20:17(ESV) has ascended on high, having led a host of captives in his train, and has received gifts among men, even among the rebellious, that the LORD God may dwell there. Psalm 68:18(ESV)

That as the Forerunner he has for me entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on my behalf: Hebrews 9:24(ESV) a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, in the midst of the throne. Revelation 5:6(ESV)

That he is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, Hebrews 8:1(ESV) with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to him. 1 Peter 3:22(ESV)

That he has gone before, to prepare a place for me in his Father’s house, where there are many rooms; John 14:2-3(ESV) and though where he has gone I cannot follow him now, yet I hope to follow him hereafter, John 13:36(ESV) when he shall come again to take me to himself, that where he is, there I may be also. John 14:3(ESV)
