|The Lord’s prayer|
Many years ago when the Lord’s prayer is been read in my church, it was with casualty. It was as if i was reading Ali and Simbi’s story.
Not long ago revelation about the Lord’s prayer came and I was like God, i want to know more, I don’t know anything…
My heart cry was
Father, reveal yourself to me.
What is the Lord prayer?
The Lord prayer is simply the pattern Jesus taught his disciples to pray.
It is the pattern the disciples of Jesus want us to pray. (KJV)
The study of Matthew 6
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Explanation of verse Matthew 6:9
The translation for this verse is used ‘set apart’, ‘holy’, ‘sanctify’ e.t.c but i came across a translated which shed light into my life.
With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. Like this: Our Father in heaven, Reveal who you are. (MSG)
The Message said, first you reverend him as a father and then the next thing is revelation of himself to us.
No wonder Paul said in Phil 3:10
while in Eph 1:17
17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,
The simple reason He was groaning in that prayer was that, He discovered
The more of God you know, the more of Him you become
The first key to accessing God’s grace is revelation of himself.

Explanation of verse Matthew 6:13
 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen
John Pope was explaining this verse recently He said
The current translation gives God a bad name and, essentially, does not give the devil his due. ~ Pope Francis(2017)
He also said something remarkable
“I am the one who falls,” Francis said. “It’s not Him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen. A father doesn’t do that; a father helps you to get up immediately,” he added. ~ Pope Francis(2017)
“It’s Satan who leads us into temptation — that’s his department,” he said. ~ Pope Francis(2017)
Now let do some study
 Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil. You’re in charge! You can do anything you want! You’re ablaze in beauty! Yes. Yes. Yes.(MSG)
The Message said Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil…You see there are just two persons who determine your life pattern
God empowers the devil to test you
If we are tempted by such trials, we must not say, “This temptation comes from God.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one.
MSG concluded the Lord’s prayer by saying verse 13
….. You’re in charge! You can do anything you want! You’re ablaze in beauty! Yes. Yes. Yes
When God is in charge there will be a change in your life.
