Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Christ’s Ascension into Heaven

Thanksgiving 4.22 | NIV

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

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

That he who went before me has entered heaven itself, now to appear for me in God’s presence: Hebrews 9:24(NIV) a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne. Revelation 5:6(NIV)

That he has sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, Hebrews 8:1(NIV) with angels, authorities, and powers in submission to him. 1 Peter 3:22(NIV)

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(NIV) and though where he has gone I cannot follow now, yet I hope to follow later, John 13:36(NIV) when he shall come back to take me to be with himself, that I also may be where he is. John 14:3(NIV)
