Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Christ’s Intercession

Thanksgiving 4.23 | KJV

For the intercession which he ever lives to make in the virtue of his satisfaction.

I thank thee that having borne the sins of many, Christ makes intercession for transgressors, Isaiah 53:12(KJV) and prays, not for those only that were given him when he was upon earth, but for all that shall believe on him through their word; that they all may be one. John 17:20-21(KJV)

That I have an Advocate with the Father, even Jesus Christ the righteous, 1 John 2:1(KJV) who is therefore able to save to the uttermost all those that come to God as a Father, by him as a Mediator, seeing he ever lives making intercession. Hebrews 7:25(KJV)

That I have a High Priest taken from among men and ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifice for sin, who can have compassion on the ignorant and on them who are out of the way; Hebrews 5:1-2(KJV) and that he is become the author of eternal salvation to all them that obey him. Hebrews 5:9(KJV)
