Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the 𝘉𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘔𝘢𝘯 broadcast and the 𝘏𝘢𝘯𝘬 𝘜𝘯𝘱𝘭𝘶𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘥 podcast, continues his dive into the Prayer of Jesus (aka the Lord’s Prayer), focusing on verses 10–13. In the yielded life there is great peace in knowing that the One who taught us to pray “Your will be done” has every detail of our lives under control. We can rest assured that even in sickness and tragedy “all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). God will not spare us from trial and tribulation; rather, he will use the fiery furnace to purge the impurities from our lives. The Prayer of Jesus is divinely divided into two parts. The first is focused on God’s glory. Thus, we pray, “hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done.” The second is focused on our needs. Jesus taught us to first reverence the realm of heaven and only then to turn our petitions toward earthly things. The phrase “on earth as it is in heaven” is a glorious reminder that the Shekinah glory that once filled Solomon’s temple will of a certainty fill the new heavens and the new earth. “The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2: 14). When we ask our heavenly Father to “give us today our daily bread,” we pray in plural. Not only are we praying for our needs and those of our immediate family, but we are praying for the needs of our extended family as well—as members of a community of faith. And we are to pray, “forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” About which the words of Christ leave no room for ambiguity. “If you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins” (Matthew 6: 14–15). When we pray, “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” we should immediately remember to “put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” (Ephesians 6: 11).
