Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Christ’s Intercession

Thanksgiving 4.23 | NASB

For the intercession which He ever lives to make in the virtue of His satisfaction.

I thank You that having bore the sin of many, Christ makes intercession for transgressors, Isaiah 53:12(NASB) and prays, not only for those who were given to Him when He was on earth, but also for all those who believe in Him through their word; that they all may be one. John 17:20-21(NASB)

That I have an Advocate with the Father, even Jesus Christ the righteous, 1 John 2:1(NASB) who is therefore able to save forever all those who draw near to God as a Father, through Him as a Mediator, since He always lives to make intercession for His people. Hebrews 7:25(NASB)

That I have a High Priest taken from among men and appointed on behalf of men in things pertaining to God, in order to offer both gifts and sacrifice for sin, who can deal gently with the ignorant and misguided; Hebrews 5:1-2(NASB) and that He has become to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation. Hebrews 5:9(NASB)
