From the series 'Prayer Fuelled Mission' - When God Has Faith In Us (Matthew 6:13)
We often encounter the temptation to sin in this fallen, broken world. But whenever we’re enticed by the idea of doing something we know is wrong, we can always rely on help from God to overcome temptation. God leads us but doesn’t tempt us. Jesus encountered temptation during his earthly life. Satan tempted Jesus in the desert wilderness three times, in ways that represented common types of human temptations. Each time, Jesus proved that good triumphs over evil. When we encounter temptation ourselves, we can count on God to help us whenever we reach out to him. The bible is clear that we’re in a spiritual battle. How do we overcome? How can we pray God’s kingdom will come in the midst of a spiritual battle?

From the series 'Prayer Fuelled Mission' - Freedom from Debt (Matt 6:9-15)
We should ask God for forgiveness and can ask for forgiveness. The problem comes with the words in this prayer, ‘as we.’ Christians understand that God wants to forgive them of their sins; He showed that by sending His Son to die for them. They can accept the idea that they are supposed to forgive others, as hard as that may be. Things get serious when they put in the words ‘as we.’ This is an invitation to examine ourselves. Why is this important? What do we need to lay down before Him and let go of?

We are designed to walk and talk with God. We are to pray for daily needs, be dependant on Him & trust in Him. How do we still ourselves and listen to what God is saying? Do we look for our daily bread?
