The Lords Prayer Part 3

Updated on April 16, 2015

Prayer Manner Heart Matter, Part 3

God lavished upon us grace and mercy through Jesus. We were chosen to stand in the righteousness of Christ as adopted sons, by his own good pleasure. (Eph.1:4-8)

A more excellent covenant, “and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” (Heb.9:22 & 28)

Forgive as the Lord forgave you. (Col.3:13)

To walk in forgiveness is to walk in the Spirit; thereby we will not give in to the deeds of the sinful nature. We have an obligation to the Spirit.

(Rom.8:12, 13)

16) “and lead us…” We acknowledge that HE is worth following, and in following, we do not follow today and stop tomorrow only to start again another day.

To follow is to give up your life.

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life…” (John 14:6)

Then; if we have agreed to let Jesus LEAD, we receive and become responsible to all the truth that he has taught us. We accept that he is the true and living word.

That he is the TRUE shepherd and that we want to hear his voice and his alone. That he alone is the way to God and through him we have eternal life, right now!


That we are to do everything we can to hold onto the position that Christ has bought and paid for with his life for us, through the generous love of God on our behalf. (Prov.10:25, Matt.24:13, Eph.6:11-14)

We give you permission to lead us by way of Holy Spirit, whom you have placed within us. What an incredible plan of God! (Jn.14:15-21, 25 & 26)

17) “not into temptation…” There is every temptation imaginable that will be thrown our way by an enemy whose primary purpose is to destroy, kill, steal, interrupt, the plans of God for us. (John 10:10)

We need the help of God to come between so great an enemy and us.

We need to know how to run from temptation and run into the strong tower of God. (1Cor.10:13, Prov.18:10)

We need the word so entrenched in our hearts that we can say with David, “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” (Ps.119:11)

Therefore we need to make sure that nothing comes and separates us from God’s ability to minister to us.

We know that nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus. (Rom.8:31-39)

And we also know that we have a high priest before God interceding on our behalf. (Heb.4:14-16, Heb.7, to 10)

18) “but deliver us from evil or from the evil one.” Jesus has prayed for us that we might have protection from the evil one. (John 17:15 & 20–25)

Jesus knew how great the evils are in the world and how powerful an enemy there is against us. He wants us to be complete, in him, in Holy Spirit, and in God the Father. All of these things are done for the benefit of our being able to stay separated from the world and have the power of the Kingdom of God within us. That we should really believe. So that if we did say to the mountain, “be thrown into the sea”, it would be done. He wants us not to stop in our pursuit of attaining the faith necessary to see these things accomplished.

He has shown us a more EXCELLENT WAY.

19) for yours is the Kingdom the power and the glory forever and ever, amen.

(This ending is left out of most translations.)

We will stop here, because we already know that this is true.

(1Chron.29:11, Ps.105:3, Is.44:23-25, Is.66:1-2, Jn.1:3, Heb.1:1-3)

The remainder of the chapter goes on speaking about forgiveness, fasting and treasure in heaven.

These following themes; especially fasting, is used along with prayer for many different applications. Much can be said about this action.

Treasures represent heart attitude and where our thoughts are focused. This will have a huge effect on answered prayer.

There are many correlating factors having to do with prayer and Holy Spirit is the absolute best guide for assisting us in Manner and Matter.
