Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Thank God for the Dominion and Sovereignty to which the Redeemer has been Exalted

Thanksgiving 4.24 | ESV

For the dominion and sovereignty to which the Redeemer has been exalted.

I thank you that because the Lord Jesus humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross, therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of JESUS every knee should bow and every tongue confess (as I do at this time) that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:8-11(ESV)

That all authority has been given to him both in heaven and on earth; Matthew 28:18(ESV) that you have set him over the works of your hands and have put everything in subjection under his feet, and so have crowned him with glory and honor. Hebrews 2:7-9(ESV)

That he is King of kings and Lord of lords; Revelation 19:16(ESV) that the Ancient of days has given him dominion and glory and a kingdom, an everlasting dominion and a kingdom that shall not be destroyed. Daniel 7:13-14(ESV)

That the government is upon his shoulders, and that his name is called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace; and of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end. Isaiah 9:6-7(ESV)

That you have set him as a King upon Zion, your holy hill; Psalm 2:6(ESV) and that he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, Luke 1:33(ESV) will reign until he has put down all opposing rule, principality, and power, 1 Corinthians 15:24-25(ESV) until all his enemies are made a footstool for his feet; Hebrews 10:13(ESV) and then he will deliver the kingdom to God, even the Father, 1 Corinthians 15:24(ESV) that God may be all in all. 1 Corinthians 15:28(ESV)
