And we pray (as we have been taught be The Son of God)


And Jesus said unto them, When ye pray, say, “Our Father (our Creator/Maker/Source/Reason) which art in Heaven, Hallowed (blessed/worshipped/adored) be Thy name. Your Kingdom come. Your Will be done, as it is in Heaven, so here on Earth, Amen. Give us day by day our daily bread (needs/wants/desires as we do Your Will.) And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us (think on this!) And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Forgive us our trespasses… Do we forgive? https://churchmotherofgod.org/articleschurch/about-services-and-prayers/6367-and-forgive-us-our-trespasses-as-we-forgive-those-who-trespass-against-us.html

There is much we could say about this model prayer of our Lord, which will help us to pray aright. But notice the last line, “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” Here, it seems God’s “providential leading” is in view, not “instructional leading,” for we would not say “God, don’t instruct me to go where I will be tempted.” Obviously, God would not do that anyway, and it would be an insult to pray that to Him. Instead, we pray “God, please so order events in my life that I fall not into temptation and into the snare of the evil one (Satan).”

And we pray:

O God, you are The Ruler of ALL Your story (His-Story, history) and of my life too. Man thinks himself the “master of his own fate, the captain of his soul,” but in truth, You rule over all. I have no right to demand tempting situations should not arise, but knowing my own weakness, I pray You will guard my steps and help me to avoid tempting situations. And if one cannot be avoided or You send it as a test, I pray I may overcome my adversary the Devil, Amen

To God be The glory. Let us praise God together for His ALL in our lives, Amen.
