Home Church Video ~ The Disciples’ Prayer ~ Part 8 ~ “Deliverance From Evil”

As we reach the last request of the Disciples’ prayer, And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,”[1] we find that the whole prayer covers everything in our lives, and this prayer request covers everything to do with our freedom in Jesus Christ.

It is to the praise of God’s glorious grace that Jesus wants us to learn to trust our Father to protect us from falling into temptation. It seems even more so that he would teach us how to talk to the Father when we have already fallen prey to the devil’s schemes.

In both cases, the fact that Jesus teaches us to pray to the Father means that he wants us always looking to God for deliverance whether it is protection from falling into sin in the first place, or deliverance once we have already succumbed. Our hope is calling out to our Father in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Join our home church as we explore both sides of this prayer request and encourage each other to pray as Jesus taught us no matter how we are doing in the battle with sin.
