Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Thanksgiving 4.24 | NIV

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

I thank you that because the Lord Jesus humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross – therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 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(NIV)

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

That he is King of kings and Lord of lords; Revelation 19:16(NIV) that the Ancient of Days has given him authority, glory, and sovereign power, an everlasting dominion and a kingdom that will never be destroyed. Daniel 7:13-14(NIV)

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

That you have installed him as a King on Zion, your holy hill; Psalm 2:6(NIV) and that he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, Luke 1:33(NIV) will reign until he has destroyed all opposing dominion, authority, and power, 1 Corinthians 15:24-25(NIV) until all his enemies are made his footstool; Hebrews 10:13(NIV) and then he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, 1 Corinthians 15:24(NIV) so that God may be all in all. 1 Corinthians 15:28(NIV)
