Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Christ’s Ascension into Heaven

Thanksgiving 4.22 | NASB

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(NASB) has ascended on high, having led captive His captives, and has received gifts among men, even among the rebellious also, that the LORD God may dwell there. Psalm 68:18(NASB)

That as the Forerunner He has for me entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for me: Hebrews 9:24(NASB) a Lamb standing, as if slain, in the midst of the throne. Revelation 5:6(NASB)

That He has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, Hebrews 8:1(NASB) angels and authorities and powers having been subjected to Him. 1 Peter 3:22(NASB)

That He has gone before, to prepare a place for me in His Father’s house, where there are many dwelling places; John 14:2-3(NASB) and though where He has gone I cannot follow Him now, yet I hope to follow Him later, John 13:36(NASB) when He will come again to receive me to Himself, that where He is, there I may be also. John 14:3(NASB)
