The Lord's Prayer: Deliver us from evil
Do you know what's much more important than the big-screen TV you really want? It's the grace needed to live a life of righteousness. May we always and wholeheartedly seek to honor God.
Welcome to this series on the Lord's Prayer. We are studying through Matthew 6:9-13 alongside Kathryn Shirey's study guide, Pray Deep: The Lord's Prayer."
This 40-day journal provides you with 5 reflection pages each week to guide you in studying Scripture and truly internalizing each of the Lord's Prayer's petitions as outlined below.

Temptation and Deliverance
Jesus teaches us that the three prayer requests we should have for ourselves are for the daily provision of our basic needs, for forgiveness for the sins we have committed, and for grace as we seek to overcome these sins.
Of course, we know that God does not tempt us (James 1:13). So why do we pray this anyway?
We need God's help to escape temptation and know that He can help us stir clear of it.
As we seek His direction, we ask that the way He leads would not tempt us to sin but rather help us to honor Him.
"God protect us from our evil desires and lead us on a path that honors you."
