The Lord’s Prayer: Twelve Tips for The Lord’s Prayer, Phrase-by-Phrase – “But Deliver Us from Evil”
10. But Deliver Us From Evil
Please keep me out of evil’s way:
the every day personal ones
Like acting mean and selfish,
cheating, not helping a friend and a lot of other things.
But, Father there’s more –
I not only asking for me, but for all of us.
And ‘‘all of us” together got some big devils stalking us
that we need to be rid of:
Violence, famine, inequality,
abject poverty, so many “ism’s”
Hey, big guy! How about some deliverance from these?
Hope I’m not being disrespectful, but…
God, you gotta do a better job!
