To retire to our inner rooms and pray is so different than what is practiced. I will be 100% honest. To respond to a promise we are asked to type ‘Amen’ and share. This act is untoward and does NOT bring glory to our Father!
What is done is secret, we may not see the effect or impact till we stand before Him and recieve our recompense, Amen
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, Who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”
“This, then, is how you should pray:
“ ‘My Father in Heaven,
Blessed be Your name,
Your Kingdom come,
Your will be done,
Here on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive me my trespasses,
as I have forgiven those who have trespass against me.
And lead me not into temptation,
but deliver me from the evil one.’
In Jesus’ name, Amen
Brethren, there is SO much I missed over time! I ask God to pardon me. In going over the “My Father” , I see many things I missed.
Let us go over the words in praying to God:
“And do not call anyone on Earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and He is in Heaven.”
We have quoted the description of our Father in Heaven previously, let us review a small portion in English, to describe our Father in ancient tongues we can definitely do, Amen

The name of God most often used in the Hebrew Bible is the Tetragrammaton (YHWH יהוה).
It was thus replaced vocally in the synagogue ritual by the Hebrew word Adonai (“My Lords”), which was translated as Kyrios (“Lord”) in the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Hebrew scriptures.
Rabbinic Judaism describes seven names which are so holy that, once written, should not be erased: YHWH and six others which can be categorized as titles are El (“God”), Eloah (“God”), Elohim (“Gods”), Shaddai (“Almighty”), Ehyeh (“I Will Be”), and Tzevaot(“[of] Hosts”). Other names are considered mere epithets or titles reflecting different aspects of God, but chumrah sometimes dictates special care such as the writing of “G-d” instead of “God” in English or saying Ṭēt-Vav (טו, lit. “9-6”) instead of Yōd-Hē (יה, lit. “10-5” but also “Jah”) for the number fifteen in Hebrew.
Blessed be Your name
Moses in speaking with The Lord and being led to return to Egypt asked “Who should I say sent me?” God’s answer “I am Who I am.”
God IS, Amen
Rather than speak on this incessantly, we are led to call no Man Father, what I have done is to utilize an “F” as opposed to “f” in respect of my father, Amen
I attempted to research the difference in the original tongue that was utilized. I am in belief that it was different, but we are referring to God in Heaven, Amen.
“Blessed be Your name.”
No matter what we call Him, He IS blessed, not only blessed, but The Source of ALL blessings, Amen
The very deep part of the prayer, we partially understand…
“Your Kingdom come.”
This says so VERY much! We are asking that in our day ALL serve Him as is done in Heaven.
When angels which are temporarily above us as pointed out below, we shall be raised and come to judge them. The word angel means ‘messengers of God.’ They are definitely God’s messengers, many have experienced them.
Your will be done,
Here on Earth as it is in Heaven.
In Heaven, God’s Will IS done. We are made aware of the results of God’s will NOT being done in Heaven.
There are two important passages in the Word of God concerning the origin and fall of Satan. The first passage relating to Satan’s fall is found in Ezekiel 28:12-19 where Ezekiel describes the creation and judgment of a vile and vicious non-human creature whose name we find out later to be Lucifer. The second passage relating to Satan’s fall is found in Isaiah 14:12-14 where the prophet Isaiah presents the origin and fall of Satan. (THE DOCTRINE OF SATAN, by H. L. Willmington, p. 21)
How Was Satan Cast From Heaven?
With reference to a “specific” time in history when Satan fell from Heaven, it must be stated that there is no clear revelation as to exactly when Satan fell, but here are limits to the possible time which we may deduce from biblical evidence. “. . . Based upon information gleaned from a comparison of Ezekiel 28:12-19 with Isaiah 14, Jude 6, and II Peter 2:4, and other passages, the following picture of Satan begins to emerge.
Satan was created as one of the host of angelic beings . . . an anointed cherub, i.e., the captain of the cherubic hosts. Sometime prior to the creation of the natural order, Satan became vain about his beauty and position, and his heart became rebellious against God.
Heaven, The Kingdom of God is ruled by His will. Satan was cast as stated out of Heaven. It should be noted again that there is no exact reference to ‘time’ but it was after the Earth was created.
God is Love, He cannot be without Love! Yet Lucifer – the light of the morning, stepped out of God’s will.
To be created by God is an Eternal existence. The reason we were ushered from The garden of Eden was to prevent consumption of the fruit of the tree of life.
In the possibly millions of years that Lucifer existed, he was cast down to Earth! Mind you the EXISTENCE of Earth is to be noted.
“And forgive me my trespasses,
as I have forgiven those who have trespass against me.”
We note that we ask that AS we have forgiven others that we be forgiven.
Your sins are NOT forgiven if you hold a grudge. If you approach God’s throne of mercy, drop ALL and go FIRST and settle with those you have problems with.
“But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.
“Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.”
I went on, but Jesus taught this. Stop and settle ALL that is around you, Then you can approach God’s throne, ask for and receive forgiveness, Amen
One of the reasons I point this out is because we may have missed this. My experience in my coma taught me so much regarding this portion of the “Lord’s prayer.”
“And lead me not into temptation,
but deliver me from the evil one.'”
Y’all, this is a key that is so often changed or left out!
Yes, “Lead me not into temptation.”
What we ALL miss….
“But deliver me from the EVIL one.”
We STATE “Deliver us from evil.” Misquote!
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before The LORD, and He will lift you up.”
Promises y’all! He will lift you up. Amen
For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
This is to review what we say/pray often.
Remain blessed and in God’s will, Amen
