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.

    Dear Sister Thelma; It is a comfort like healing balm to read good words like yours! While so many times I am compelled to answer, reprove, rebuke and correct, many misled and obstinate who have set themselves to oppose and contradict the truth of the Glad Tidings; the good and wholesome words of the Saints are like cold waters to a thirsty soul, and so timely! The LORD bless and keep you!

    ***LUKE 21:36 watch you therefore --- and pray always that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass and to stand before THE SON OF MAN *** 2 THESSALONIANS 1:11 wherefore we pray always for you that our GOD would count you worthy of this calling and fulfill all the good pleasure of HIS goodness and the work of faith with power
  • A disciple
    Jot; Just in case there are actually multitudes of sincere Believers with good and honest hearts; who really do think deeply about WHAT they pray; don't you think it might be a "little" arrogant to presume that praying the "Our Father" is heathen repetition? Leading the Assembly in prayer of the very words of our Lord is a good thing! Maybe you need to start praying, instead of attacking prayer.
