We turn our attention to verse 13 today, which says, “And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.” Jesus instructs us to pray this prayer, to express our dependence on God and His power to overcome evil. The Bible tells us to take heed, because no one is above falling into temptation. It also tells us that, “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man.” Let’s join Pastor John now as he instructs us today from God’s Word.
6:9 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. 13 And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
