Wesley's Notes for Matthew 6:13


6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil - Whenever we are tempted, O thou that helpest our infirmities, suffer us not to enter into temptation; to be overcome or suffer loss thereby; but make a way for us to escape, so that we may be more than conquerors, through thy love, over sin and all the consequences of it. Now the principal desire of a Christian's heart being the glory of God, (ver. 9, 10,) #Mt 6:9,10| and all he wants for himself or his brethren being the daily bread of soul and body, (or the support of life, animal and spiritual,) pardon of sin, and deliverance from the power of it and of the devil, (ver. 11, 12, 13,) #Mt 6:11,12,13| there is nothing beside that a Christian can wish for; therefore this prayer comprehends all his desires. Eternal life is the certain consequence, or rather completion of holiness. For thine is the kingdom - The sovereign right of all things that are or ever were created: The power - the executive power, whereby thou governest all things in thy everlasting kingdom: And the glory - The praise due from every creature, for thy power, and all thy wondrous works, and the mightiness of thy kingdom, which endureth through all ages, even for ever and ever. It is observable, that though the doxology, as well as the petitions of this prayer, is threefold, and is directed to the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost distinctly, yet is the whole fully applicable both to every person, and to the ever - blessed and undivided trinity. #Luke 11:2|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 6:13


Mt 6:13 Lead us not into temptation. The thought is that God may preserve us from temptations that might lead us astray. No man can pray these words who does not try to keep out of temptation. For thine is the kingdom. This clause, called the doxology, is wanting in the oldest and best manuscripts, and undoubtedly an addition by men.

    6:5-6 Do not draw attention to yourself, praying out loud and repetitive. Pray with humility and reverence, and God will draw nearer to you, hear you and bless you.
  • Taiwo Favor Ajani
    We should reject pride, forgive those who offended us ,win souls for Jesus always in all possible ways and consciously praise and worship God daily ... and He will surely surprise us with blessings beyond our imaginations.
  • Linda
    The secret is verse 33... Seek ye first his kingdom and all these things will be added to you....this is a promise that the Lord will care for us if only we seek him. In your thoughts and quiet times look for the Lord's hand in everthing.

    Mathew 6:14 "For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you." SIMPLE SCRIPTURE TO UNDERSTAND BUT SOMETIMES IS HARD TO DO! THINK ABOUT IT LIKE THIS: WHO ARE WE TO NOT FORGIVE THE HURT SOMEBODY CAUSED US, WHEN WE CAUSED HURT TO GOD BY NOT ONLY SINNING, BUT HAVING TO SEE HIS ONLY SON TREATED LIKE AN ANIMAL JUST TO SAVE OUR SOULS FROM A BURNING HE
  • Angie
    It makes me surrender more to god, seek the kingdom of heaven in all his righteous and these things will be added unto you, takes away my worry and anxiety!
