We pray ‘deliver us from evil’ as a prayer of ongoing trust and re-commitment to the Lord. We’ll see this prayer as a statement of discipleship. It is this desire of on-going deliverance to take place within me. Constantly desiring for the Lord to re-engage our trust in Him and to teach us not trust in anything else.
We also believe that God is a deliverer. One of the most beautiful things that reoccurs in the pages of the Bible is God’s faithfulness to His people and Him meeting them in the most hopeless of places to bring deliverance.
Today’s Scriptures | Matthew 6.7-13
Matt. 6:7 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. 8 “So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
Matt. 6:9 “Pray, then, in this way:
‘Our Father who is 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 also have forgiven our debtors.
13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’
