What is the Introduction to the Lord's Prayer?
Our Father in heaven.
What does The Introduction to the Lord's Prayer mean?
With these words God tenderly invites us to believe that He is our true Father and that we are His true children, so that with all boldness and confidence we may ask Him as dear children ask their dear father.
What is the First Petition to the Lord's Prayer?
Hallowed be Thy name.
What does the First Petition to the Lord's Prayer mean?
God’s name is certainly holy in itself, but we pray in this petition that it may be kept holy among us also.
How is God's name kept holy?
God’s name is kept holy when the Word of God is taught in its truth and purity, and we, as the children of God, also lead holy lives according to it. Help us to do this, dear Father in heaven! But anyone who teaches or lives contrary to God’s Word profanes the name of God among us. Protect us from this, heavenly Father!
What is the Second Petition to the Lord's Prayer?
Thy kingdom come.
What does the Second Petition to the Lord's Prayer mean?
What does this mean? The kingdom of God certainly comes by itself without our prayer, but we pray in this petition that it may come to us also.
How does God's kingdom come?
The kingdom of God certainly comes by itself without our prayer, but we pray in this petition that it may come to us also.
What is the Third Petition to the Lord's Prayer?
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
What does the Third Petition to the Lord's Prayer mean?
The good and gracious will of God is done even without our prayer, but we pray in this petition that it may be done among us also.
How is God’s will done?
God’s will is done when He breaks and hinders every evil plan and purpose of the devil, the world, and our sinful nature, which do not want us to hallow God’s name or let His kingdom come; and when He strengthens and keeps us firm in His Word and faith until we die. This is His good and gracious will.
What is the Fourth Petition of the Lord's Prayer?
Give us this day our daily bread.
What does this mean?
God certainly gives daily bread to everyone without our prayers, even to all evil people, but we pray in this petition that God would lead us to realize this and to receive our daily bread with thanksgiving.
What is meant by daily bread?
Daily bread includes everything that has to do with the support and needs of the body, such as food, drink, clothing, shoes, house, home, land, animals, money, goods, a devout husband or wife, devout children, devout workers, devout and faithful rulers, good government, good weather, peace, health, self-control, good reputation, good friends, faithful neighbors, and the like.
What is the Fifth Petition of the Lord's Prayer?
And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
What does the Fifth Petition mean?
We pray in this petition that our Father in heaven would not look at our sins, or deny our prayer because of them. We are neither worthy of the things for which we pray, nor have we deserved them, but we ask that He would give them all to us by grace, for we daily sin much and surely deserve nothing but punishment. So we too will sincerely forgive and gladly do good to those who sin against us.
What is the Sixth Petition of the Lord's Prayer?
And lead us not into temptation.
What does the Sixth Petition of the Lord's Prayer mean?
God tempts no one. We pray in this petition that God would guard and keep us so that the devil, the world, and our sinful nature may not deceive us or mislead us into false belief, despair, and other great shame and vice. Although we are attacked by these things, we pray that we may finally overcome them and win the victory.
What is the Seventh Petition of the Lord's Prayer?
But deliver us from evil.
What does the Seventh Petition of the Lord's Prayer mean?
We pray in this petition, in summary, that our Father in heaven would rescue us from every evil of body and soul, possessions and reputation, and finally, when our last hour comes, give us a blessed end, and graciously take us from this valley of sorrow to Himself in heaven.
What is the Conclusion of the Lord's Prayer?
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
What does this mean?
This means that I should be certain that these petitions are pleasing to our Father in heaven, and are heard by Him; for He Himself has commanded us to pray in this way and has promised to hear us. Amen, amen means “yes, yes, it shall be so.”
