When the disciples of Jesus asked him to teach them how to pray, he gave them a prayer now commonly called "The Lord's Prayer". Given that it came from the Lord, each word in this prayer must be regarded as having special significance.
Also, because this prayer was for all of his disciples, it must be regarded as a prayer that applies to everyone and therefore, touches the basic human needs as God sees it.
As we examine this prayer, we would see that God identifies human needs and yet asks us to pray that those needs be met. It shows that God meets human needs not based on his knowledge of them but because we ask.
Romans 13 gives an interesting insight into God's thoughts as it relates to certain aspects of the Justice system as instituted among men. This should not surprise those familiar with the scripture for, as early as Genesis 9, following the flood, God, in instructions to Noah instituted the death penalty and by implication government (organised rule) and, his purpose in so doing was to exact justice when a man's blood was shed.
In Isaiah 1:23, God, through the prophet, laments the state of corrupt rulers who, among their several faults failed to deliver justice to the weaker persons in society. As a result, he promised in the following two verses (24, 25) to execute his judgment and restore judges who would do right. (vs 26). The idea being, that God expects a functional and just legal and criminal justice system in a nation. The idea is that men should judge among themselves and do so justly. When that is absent, God intervenes and bring his own judgement which is usually extremely painful.
In what is almost universally known as the Lord’s Prayer, The Lord Jesus taught his disciples to say these words in prayer to God, “Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil”.
Those words teach us several things:
1. That there are temptations that comes to us
2. That it is temptation to do evil
3. That God wants to deliver us from evil (for if he did not want to deliver us from evil, the Lord would not have taught us to ask Him to)
4. That God would not deliver us from evil automatically even though He wishes to. We need to ask Him. (If He automatically delivered us from evil then the Lord would have no need to teach us to ask God to deliver us).
5. That except God delivers us, then we would fall victim to evil. (Surely, if we could have delivered ourselves from evil, then the Lord would have seen no need to teach us to approach God in prayer, to deliver us)
