Bible Study: The Prayer Jesus Taught His Disciples Week # 10

Matthew 6:5-16

Beginning Prayer:


Dear Father God; Thank you that you make all things new. Thank you for all that you've allowed into our lives this past year, the good along with the hard things, which have reminded us how much we need you and rely on your presence filling us every single day. We pray for your Spirit to lead us each step of this New Year. We ask that you will guide our decisions and turn our hearts to deeply desire you above all else. We ask that you will open doors needing to be opened and close the ones needing to be shut tight. We ask that you would help us release our grip on the things to which you've said "no," "not yet," or "wait." We ask for help to pursue you first, above every dream and desire you've put within our hearts. We ask for your wisdom, for your strength and power to be constantly present within us. We pray you would make us strong and courageous for the road ahead. Give us ability beyond what we feel able, let your gifts flow freely through us, so that you would be honored by our lives, and others would be drawn to you. We pray that you'd keep us far from the snares and traps of temptations. That you would whisper in our ear when we need to run, and whisper in our heart when we need to stand our ground. We pray for your protection over our families and friends. We ask for your hand to cover us and keep us distanced from the evil intent of the enemy; that you would be a barrier to surround us, that we'd be safe in your hands. We pray that you would give us discernment and insight beyond our years, to understand your will, hear your voice, and know your ways. We ask that you would keep our footsteps firm, on solid ground, helping us to be consistent and faithful. Give us supernatural endurance to stay the course, not swerving to the right or to the left, or being too easily distracted by other things that would seek to call us away from a close walk with you. Forgive us for the times we have worked so hard to be self-sufficient, forgetting our need for you, living independent of your spirit. Forgive us for letting fear and worry control our minds, and for allowing pride and selfishness wreak havoc over our lives. Forgive us for not following your ways and for living distant from your presence. We confess our need for you…fresh…new…again. We ask that you make all things new, in our hearts, in our minds, in our lives, for this coming year. We pray for your refreshing over us. Keep your words of truth planted firm within us, help us to keep focused on what is pure and right, give us the power to be obedient to your word. And when the enemy reminds us where we have been, hissing his lies and attacks our way, we trust that your voice speaks louder and stronger, as you remind us we are safe with you and your purposes and plans will not fail. We ask that you will be our defense and rear guard, keeping our way clear, removing the obstacles, and covering the pitfalls. Lord, lead us on your level ground. We ask that you would provide for our needs, we ask for your grace and favor. We pray for your blessings to cover us, we pray that you would help us to prosper and make every plan that you have birthed in our heart to succeed. We pray that others would take notice of your goodness and could not help but to say, "These are the ones that the Lord has blessed." Help us to be known as great givers, help us to be generous and kind, help us to look to the needs of others and not be consumed by only our own. May we be lovers of truth, may the fruits of your spirit be evident in our lives - your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Shine your light in us, through us, over us. May we make a difference in this world, for your glory and purposes. Set you way before us. May all your plans succeed. We may reflect your peace and hope to a world that so desperately needs your presence and healing. To you be glory and honor, in this New Year, and forever. In Jesus' name, Amen.


Subject:   "The Lord's Prayer" (Forgive us debts; as we forgive our debtors).



Forgiveness, Temptation, and Deliverance In an earlier chapter I stated that the Lord's Prayer falls into seven petitions: three pertaining to God, or those known as the theocentric petitions, and four that are man-ward and are known as the anthropocentric petitions. It is with the latter groupthose having to do with the foundational and fundamental things in our lives—that we wish to deal at this time. They deal with that ugly thing called sin. It was Charles Spurgeon who said that no prayer of mortal man could be complete without a confession of sin, and this part of the Lord's Prayer faces up to this business of sin, the reality of it, and how to deal with it. One of the things that marks us today is that we will not face up to reality. Not only is it true of the isms, but it is true of many individually. We want to deal with things that are theoretical—not with things that are actual. But this prayer is real and actual. And Forgive Us Our Debts, As We Forgive Our Debtors I want you to note these three wordings: "And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors," is Matthew's account of it. If you turn to Luke 11:4 you will find that it is, "And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us." It was Tyndale in his translation who brought forth the word trespass, and you will find in some churches today where there is formal religion, liturgy, and ritual, the use of "forgive us our debts," while others will use "forgive us our trespasses." Two little girls were talking about the Lord's Prayer as repeated in their churches. One said, "We have trespasses in our church," and the other said, "Well, in our church we have debts," and they were both probably right as far as the churches of our day are concerned—they have both debts and trespasses! Which one is accurate? There is no difficulty here at all since all of these words refer to the same thing, and that thing is sin. In Scripture there are many words for sin. Sin is a complicated and mysterious thing. Goodness and virtue are simple. One of the things that is attractive about sin is that it is like a maze or a puzzle; it is something that you do not know too much about. Let us turn to an illustration for this thought. If I were to hold a straight stick behind my back and asked ten people to draw a picture of it, I have a notion that they all would draw just about the same kind of picture—it would be straight. Now that represents goodness—it is always just one way, and it cannot be two ways. But if I held a crooked stick behind me and asked ten more people to draw a picture of it, I have a notion that there would be as many different pictures of that crooked stick as persons drawing it. That represents sin. Sin can be crooked in a million different ways; Scripture, therefore, uses many different words for it. It would be of interest to look at some of those words. It is called debt because it is a debt to God. It is called missing the mark because we fall short of the glory of God. It is called lawlessness, disobedience, trespass, crossing the boundary, or a moral aberration. Then there are such terms as impiety, blasphemy, and disharmony, meaning that which is out of harmony with God. These are some of the words that are used to set forth sin in all of its complexity today. But they all may be crystallized into one meaning in the use of the word "debt"—something that we owe. There are sins of omission as well as sins of commission. We say we have done what we should not have done, but we have left undone those things that we should have done. And today you and I are in debt to God. We owe Him something, and we have not paid that obligation; we have not discharged our responsibility. "And forgive us our debts [our sins], as we forgive our debtors [those who are indebted to us]." This is on a legalistic basis and, frankly, I am rather afraid to pray the prayer just like that. It was a Puritan theologian who made the statement that to pray the prayer with an unforgiving spirit means in actuality to say, "God, do not forgive me because I do not forgive those who are around me." How many people there are today of whom that would be true! They have an unforgiving spirit, and yet they have the audacity to say to God, "Forgive me as I forgive those round about me." If God forgave us as we forgive those round about us, I fear that few of us would ever be forgiven. For in the heart of man there is an unforgiving spirit. David committed a grave sin, and God said to him, "You are to be punished, David. But I will let you choose your punishment. Would you prefer to fall into the hands of God or into the hands of your enemy?" It did not take David long to arrive at a conclusion in that matter, for he cried out to God, "Oh, let me fall into the hands of God, for He is merciful, and let me not fall into the hands of man." (See 2 Samuel 24:10-14.) I am grateful that I do not have to stand before my enemies in judgment. I often receive many kind and gracious letters in response to my ministry, but every now and then I receive a harsh and critical letter—and how distressing it is. It is difficult to see how it could have come from the heart of a Christian. And when I read a letter like that, I am glad that I do not have to stand before that person in judgment, for I would not stand a chance. Perhaps they ought to be thankful that they will not have to stand before me, because they might not get off so easy either. You see, we would not be very gracious to each other. We are not even gracious to ourselves. We sometimes hear the expression, "I wanted to kick myself." God has no such attitude toward you. He is gracious, and David said, "Let me fall into the hands of God—He is merciful—and let me not fall into the hands of my enemies." That is grace. "And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors," is not grace—it is legalistic. I thank God for another verse of Scripture: And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32) Today God is forgiving us on the basis of what Christ has done for us, not on the basis by which we forgive. The redemption of God is in full view when God forgives us. It does not refer to our salvation when we read, "And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." He is speaking there to those who are already saved and have the nature of God. He does not wait for you to forgive before He forgives. That is not His method of settling the sin question. He gave His Son to die, and it is on that basis that God forgives and saves. Do you know that it is more difficult for God to forgive sin than it is for you or me to forgive infringements? I can make this clear with a homely illustration. If you should step on my shoe and spoil my shine and then say to me, "I am sorry, will you forgive me?" I would say, "Sure. I was going to have another shine anyhow. Forget it. " But it is a vastly different matter when we watch a judge who is trying a criminal. He should not let that criminal go free just because he expresses sorrow for his act. The judge is in the position of being a ruler and is obligated to uphold the law. So it would be more difficult for the judge to forgive than for me to forgive you for having spoiled my shine as you stepped on my shoe.

Sharing From The Heart at Christmas

Weekly Reading Assignment: (Acts 17-18)


I have read my reading assignment for this week; good reading about the Apostle Paul missionary journey from Thessalonica to Corinth; This was the end of his second missionary journey, and the start of the third missionary journey.


Sharing From the Heart at Christmas:


We must be careful in judging others concerning Christmas time or the celebration of Christmas. Let's not get caught up in this, because it will bring division in the church/believers/God's people as a whole. We don't celebrate the day, but what happen at that time in history for our sake.  It is too precious that is why the enemy bring confusion so we want come together as the Bride of Christ. He died for us let's not take away from showing Him we appreciate what He did. Let' put aside the confusion and celebrate Him every day even on 12/25; it shows our love for Him and the time it happen. AMEN.

A Christmas Devotional:


Jesus' Birth—The Big Picture

Key Passage: Luke 2:8-18

Supporting Scriptures: Micah 5:2 | John 3:16


When you think of Christmas, what thoughts come to mind?

Do you immediately focus on shopping, gifts, entertaining, and cooking, or do you remember that Jesus' birth is the main event? Even if your initial thoughts are about that first Christmas, you could miss some of life's most important lessons if you don't move beyond the manger, shepherds, and wise men to the big picture.

Sermon Points:

As we look beyond the basics, the Christmas story will teach us the following principles:

What appears to be an insignificant event can have eternal consequences:

In itself, the birth of a baby was not that special. Many babies were born at that same time in the land of Israel. Even the fact that Jesus was born in a stable wasn't that extraordinary. Babies have always arrived at inconvenient times and in strange places. Mary and Joseph weren't exceptional people, either. They were just two of many people at that time in history.

In those days, Caesar was considered the most important person in the world, not an unknown Jewish couple with a newborn baby in Bethlehem. Yet in that stable the most significant event in human history took place. This tiny baby was God in human flesh who would later die on a cross for the sins of mankind, be resurrected, and ascend to heaven to sit at the Father's right hand. Yet most of the world was unaware of the wonder and eternal ramifications of Jesus' birth.

We shouldn't always judge a situation by appearance. Sometimes what seems insignificant in our lives is very important in God's eyes. He works through all kinds of circumstances to accomplish His will, and each one plays an important role, whether we realize it or not.

Sometimes God uses the ungodly to accomplish His divine purpose:

And that's exactly what He did during that first Christmas. As emperor, Caesar had total authority to make laws that affected the Roman world. When he made a decree that a census be taken of all the known world, it required that everyone register in his own town. Joseph had to travel with Mary from Nazareth to Bethlehem because he was from the family of David.

Seven hundred years before this event, the prophet Micah had predicted that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2). The Lord used a pagan emperor to fulfill this prophecy. Caesar's objective was to impose a tax on the empire, but God's goal was to transport Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem for the birth of the Messiah as prophesied in the Scripture.

Oftentimes God does His greatest work through unlikely people:

Those who knew Mary probably never would have guessed that she would give birth to the Messiah. She and Joseph were ordinary people. It's likely no one thought of them as great instruments of God, but they were the ones He chose to work through to bring His Son into the world.

The Lord accomplishes His plans in His way using whomever He chooses. And it may not fit with our perception of how He ought to carry out His will. That's why we should never think that the Lord can't use us. Our goal should be to make ourselves available, as Mary did, for whatever He may ask of us.

A person's value is not determined by his or her surroundings:

Although Jesus was God's Son, He was born in a humble setting—a stable, complete with all the smells and sounds of animals. His bed was a manger, and He was wrapped in swaddling clothes. A stranger who walked into that stable could not have recognized the significance of this baby based on the environment.

We can't determine someone's value in God's eyes by his or her origin or status. Nor should we underestimate what the Lord will do in our lives if we're obedient to Him. What truly matters is not our status in the world but our relationship with Christ. There are many Christians who will be honored by God in heaven even though they were never recognized as great on earth.

God often makes His greatest revelations to people who have a low position in life:

Jesus' birth was a private event for his parents, Mary and Joseph. But in a field not far away, God chose to announce the birth of His Son to a group of lowly shepherds (Luke 2:8-20). In a divine revelation, "an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened" (v. 9). After hearing the message and seeing a multitude of angels praising God, the shepherds left immediately and hurried to find the baby.

This was the long-awaited Messiah, and many people at that time were expecting Him to come, but the shepherds were the only ones to hear of His arrival. Why would God choose to reveal this marvelous truth to some of the most inconsequential people in society? Perhaps it was because they were young and willing to believe the message. Furthermore they were eager to find the baby and had the courage to let others know what they'd seen and heard. Although the people who heard their report wondered at the news, there is no record of any of them going out to see Jesus.

Are we like the shepherds—eager to let others know about Jesus? Christmas provides many opportunities to share what He has done in our lives. We can tell them that Christmas is the celebration of our Savior. The trees remind us of the cross on which He died so we could be forgiven. The lights point to the Light of the world who came that dark night. And the Christmas gifts remind us of God's awesome, eternal gift of His Son.

There is so much more to Christmas than many people think about. Not only can we learn valuable lessons by looking beyond the basics to the big picture, but we have also been given the responsibility to follow the shepherds' example. Once they saw the baby in the stable, it's certain their lives were never the same again. They had to tell everyone about Jesus, and so should we.

Weekly Praise:

Glory to God in the highest


Praise You, Jesus, You are the Wonderful Counselor. Praise You, Jesus, You are the Prince of Peace. Praise You, Jesus, You are the Light of the World. Praise You, Jesus, You are the Living Word. Praise You, Jesus, You are the Redeemer.  Praise You Father for giving Your Son, Praise You Jesus for giving Your life. Glory to God in the highest!


Let's Hallow His name by rehearsing Who He is:


Name Jehovah-Elo-Him


God "Creator, Mighty and Strong" (Genesis 17:7Jeremiah 31:33) – the plural form of Eloah, which accommodates the doctrine of the Trinity. From the Bible's first sentence, the superlative nature of God's power is evident as God (Elohim) speaks the world into existence (Genesis 1:1).

Weekly Song:

(Matthew 26:30)    Away in a Manager


Away in a manger no crib for a bed the little lord Jesus laid down his sweet head the stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. The cattle are lowing the baby awakes But little lord Jesus no crying he makes. I love you lord Jesus; look down from the sky and stay by my side until morning is nigh. Be near me Lord Jesus I ask you to stay Close by me forever, and love me, I pray. Bless all the dear children in your tender care, and fit us for heaven, to live with you there.



1).       What is Christmas to you?

Very good question, I think! Christmas is the baby Jesus to me. Christmas is why I am saved today and living unto the Lord. God sent His Son on Christmas, no matter what day or year it was, it happen and that is why it's Christmas. Some Christian do not want to hear these words "Jesus is the reason for the season." That is precious to me!

2).       What is your most favorite Christmas carol?

Silent Night, but I love all of them that tell the story of the babe Jesus.

3).       How do you celebrate Christmas?

Now days I work on Christmas, but I celebrate Christmas all year around because I seek the joy of God, and I give love to all I can through-out the year. But, family is precious to me and if they want to celebrate, then I will just to be with them. Most family work all year and can't get off work until Christmas, so it's a great time to set aside to be with family and give. I celebrate with family, we pray together first of all, eat a good dinner, give gifts, play games, watch a good Christian Christmas movie, and sleep, LOL.

4).       Why do you celebrate Christmas?

My family did, so it was passed on to us as Christians who believe that Jesus was born through a virgin according to the Bible. They taught us the story and we taught our children about Christmas and been a Christian.

5).       Why do you, if so, give gifts for Christmas?

The song, "Love lifted me" tells the story of giving to me. Love lifted me! Love lifted me! When nothing else could help, Love lifted me. Love lifted me! Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help Love lifted me; God gave His son! God gave His son! God gave His son! When nothing else could help, God gave His Son, God gave His Son, When nothing else could help, God  gave His Son; Son gave His life!, Son gave His life! When nothing else could help, Son gave His life; Son gave His life! Son gave His life!
When nothing else could help, Son gave His life! It's all about GIVING!!!"

6).       Give us our daily bread, what do this means to you?

Just as said in the answer of question five; it is all about GIVING!!!

7).      How big of a role does Jesus have in your thoughts at Christmas?

It's the most important thing to me concerning Christmas. It's about Jesus!        

8).      How have you seen God work through this past year?

I was praying the other day and it came to me to praise God for His provision He has provided for me through this year; I have seen God work miracles this year concerning my person life. I am so grateful!!

9).       Will you share Jesus this year with someone?

I have and it felt so good to me!! I will continue so it can bring glory to the Father in Heaven.

10).    Should we be alarmed about today's economy, explain?

I like what this lesson tells us "May I say that I do not think a Christian should be alarmed today because of what the economist is saying about diminishing resource. We are not looking to man to supply our needs; we are looking to God." He makes the provision for us!

11).     What do Matthew 6:33 means to you?

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  God will provide for us as the Scripture says, and we must seek Him and His righteousness.  It remind me of "Emmanuel" God is with us to provide for us.

12).     What do Luke 6:38 says?

"Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again." We must remember God gave His Son!!

Prayer from the Bible:

Jehoshaphat   2 Chronicles  20


It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle.

Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi.

And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.

And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the Lord: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord.

And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord, before the new court,

And said, O Lord God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?

Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?

And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,

If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.

10 And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not;

11 Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit.

12 O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.

13 And all Judah stood before the Lord, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.

14 Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the Lord in the midst of the congregation;

15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.

16 To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.

17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.

18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the Lord, worshipping the Lord.

19 And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel with a loud voice on high.

20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever.

22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.

24 And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.

25 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.

26 And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley of Berachah; for there they blessed the Lord: therefore the name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah, unto this day.

27 Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies.

28 And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the Lord.

29 And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the Lord fought against the enemies of Israel.

30 So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about.

31 And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah: he was thirty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi.

32 And he walked in the way of Asa his father, and departed not from it, doing that which was right in the sight of the Lord.

33 Howbeit the high places were not taken away: for as yet the people had not prepared their hearts unto the God of their fathers.

34 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Jehu the son of Hanani, who is mentioned in the book of the kings of Israel.

35 And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly:

36 And he joined himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish: and they made the ships in Eziongaber.

37 Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, the Lord hath broken thy works. And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish.
