Matthew 6:9–13 (ESV)

The Lord’s Prayer (Part 2)

Pray then like this:

       “Our Father in heaven,

       hallowed be your name.

10    Your kingdom come,

       your will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

11    Give us this day our daily bread,

12    and forgive us our debts,

as we also have forgiven our debtors.

13    And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

 

The Lord’s Prayer is often called the perfect prayer because it is the model that Jesus used for teaching the disciples and us today.  Too many prayers are “me prayers” where the prayers are all about me and what I want.  Stop and look at the petitions (or requests) and notice the humbleness of the Lord’s Prayer.  The only petition that you are asking for something tangible is the fourth petition “give us this day our daily bread.”  The “me prayers” are often me telling God what to do or what to give me.  This goes against “Thy will be done” and changes it to “My will be done.”  Let’s be content is living according to the Lord’s will instead of my (your) will.

 

I pray: O Lord, forgive me when I pray with the wrong intentions and please continue to provide what is best for me.  Help me to be content and to trust your ways.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
