The Lord's Prayer in an Hour of Temptation
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.

We say the words in bold differently than everybody else, because the words "lead us not into temptation" (Mat. 6:13) presuppose that we are not in a global "temptation" (Rev. 3:10) and that God has not made a "way of escape" (1Co. 10:13) to "deliver" (2Pe. 2:9) us out of the temptation. When we say the words in bold, we should "look up to heaven" (Mark 6:41) as a sign that we trust our Father to hear that petition (Dan. 13:35).

Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And in this hour of temptation,
show us the way of escape,
so that we can be delivered from evil.
