THE MODEL PRAYER – THE ENDING

SCRIPTURE

Matthew 6:13 (NKJV) 13

And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

 

OBSERVATION

Although the line “For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen,” is not found in the most reliable manuscripts they seem to be perfectly fitting to this passage, and they certainly speak of the reality of God.

 

UNDERSTANDING

After asking for provision and forgiveness, guidance and protection the prayer ends with a declaration that allows us to believe that our prayer is not in vain. After all we are asking our requests to the One who is in charge of everything and can do whatever He wants. He is almighty and powerful. When we end with such a declaration it is a faith builder because we are reminding ourselves that God, to whom we have asked our requests is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could ever ask or think.

 

LIFE APPLICATION

Remember the saying…

If the request is wrong God says NO

If the timing is wrong God says SLOW

If you are wrong, God says GROW

And if the request is right, the timing is right and your heart is right God says GO!

 

Pray. Pray with confidence that God is able to meet all of your requests because He is in charge of everything and can do whatever He wants.
