Lord's Prayer

Matthew 6:13 "Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one"

This text brings us to the end of the series on the Lord’s Prayer. It is a passage, as we have seen, that contains much more truth than we commonly think it does like a diamond it can reflect fresh light enhancing its beauty as we examine it more closely. It is a passage...

Lord's Prayer

Matthew 6:12 "Forgive us our debts…"

Bishop Ryle’s book, Holiness was first published in last quarter of the nineteenth century, reprinted in 1956 and has remained in print ever since Surprisingly, it opens with a chapter on sin. The opening sentence has always struck me as an example of how to ensure that a book will never be read: "He that wishes to attain to right views about...

Lord's Prayer

Matthew 6:11 "Give us today our daily bread"

When I was first converted, almost 30 years ago now, ѕ I was, as you say, a college freshman ѕ my great consuming need or so I thought, was a car. And I did what I thought the Bible expected of me, I prayed for one. My prayers were simple and earnest: I didn’t ask for a Cadillac, just a...

The Lord's Prayer - 7 Matthew 6:10 Thy Will be Done Dr. Thomas

The third petition of the Lord’s Prayer, "Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven" (Matt 6:10), brings into sharp focus that God is the chief the concern of this prayer and not us. Three petitions exalting God come first: his name, his kingdom, his will are to be our preoccupation whenever...

Lord's Prayer

Matthew 6:10

Thy Kingdom Come

Folk discovering the Lord’s Prayer for the first time may be excused in thinking that some of its petitions do not say a great deal. This one, for example: "Thy Kingdom come…" We might be excused in thinking that this is a prayer for missions and leave it at that. In that case, turning to The Larger Catechism will edify:

In the second...

The Lord's Prayer - 5

Hallowed be Thy name…

Even a cursory reading of the Bible will reveal that names are important to the biblical writers. Some will recall recent expositions of Genesis where the text was a list of names! Some of you are intensely interested in your family names, proudly declaring Scottish or Irish or, as in one case, a Welsh ancestry. I vividly recall having...

Lord's Prayer

A Notable Prayer-Meeting Acts 12:1-19

Prayer meetings were the arteries of the early church. Through them, life-sustaining power was derived. Luke, in particular seems to want to emphasize how important prayer-meetings were by giving us cameo portraits of the church at prayer. A particular location, a room in Jerusalem, is singled out. It is the one which belonged to Mary, John Mark’s mother, and an aunt of Barnabas...

THE PRAYER MEETING – 1 The New Testament Church ѕ birthed in prayer!

ACTS 1:12-14

There is, of course, something deeply significant about the opening pages of the Acts of the Apostles. Would it be overstating it if we were to suggest that it is more significant than the opening pages of the Gospels? Perhaps! The Gospels begin with the birth of Jesus Christ, the promised Saviour of...
