|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.
