Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for Christ’s Intercession

Thanksgiving 4.23 | NIV

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 the transgressors, Isaiah 53:12(NIV) and prays, not only for those given to him while he was upon earth, but also for all who will believe in him through their message; that all of them may be one. John 17:20-21(NIV)

That I have one who speaks to the Father in my defense – Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, 1 John 2:1(NIV) who is therefore able to save completely all those who come to God as a Father, through him as a Mediator, because he always lives to intercede for them. Hebrews 7:25(NIV)

That I have a High Priest selected from among men and appointed to represent them in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifice for sin, who is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray; Hebrews 5:1-2(NIV) and that he has become the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him. Hebrews 5:9(NIV)
