Question 127

Which is the sixth petition?

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”; that is, since we are so weak in ourselves, that we cannot stand a moment;375375    John 15:5; Ps. 103:14. and besides this, since our mortal enemies, the devil,376376    1 Pet. 5:8; Eph. 6:12. the world,377377    John 15:19. and our own flesh,378378    Rom. 7:23; Gal. 5:17. cease not to assault us, do thou therefore preserve and strengthen us by the power of thy Holy Spirit, that we may not be overcome in this spiritual warfare,379379    Matt. 26:41; Mark 13:33. but constantly and strenuously may resist our foes, till at last we obtain a complete victory.380380    1 Thess. 3:13; 1 Thess. 5:23.
