Theme 28. The Lord's Prayer



Matthew 6:9-13
Luke 11:2-4
4985 5428


Links to messages from Bertha Dudde follow to the subject "The Lord's Prayer", but first The Lord's Prayer itself:



^ Matthew 6:9-13


Mat 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Mat 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Mat 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread.

Mat 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Mat 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.



^ Luke 11:2-4


Luk 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

Luk 11:3 Give us day by day our daily bread.

Luk 11:4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.



^ B.D. NR. 4985

Deliver us from all evil.

19. October 1950. B.D. NR. 4985.

Deliver us from all evil. Temptations often approach you, which certainly are allowed by me, but are always work of my opponent, because also he fights for every soul and he therefore seeks to influence the will of man, to rebel himself against me, therefore to sin. These temptations are always an obstacle for man, where he can fail, but I also do not leave him without favour as counter work for Satan. I also emerge clearly recognisable, when man faces a crucial decision, when he is pushed away from the right way through the cunning of my opponent and is still of doubtful mind. Then a short quick prayer, a thought towards me, is enough: Deliver us from all evil. I emerge full of light; I show him the right way; I show him the darkness of the other way, which to walk on he was in danger. I help every man, who just directs one thought towards me, questioning and asking. I certainly allow the temptations; because also the opponent is entitled to the right to exert his influence, because it is about the free decision of the will, to which making, man must also be exposed to both influences, the good as also the evil. But man does not need to succumb defencelessly; he will always be able to resist, because I help him, so he has just once taken the way to me. And I now show him quite clearly, which power wants to harm him. I want to deliver all you men from evil; I want to make you free out of the power of him, who is to blame for your bound state; I want that you are happy, that you no longer feel besieged by him, who wants your evil, who entices you to ruin and who stops at no means. He comes himself as angel of light to you, when he believes to have success in this way; he wants to possess you and applies cunning and violence. And nevertheless he finds in me his master, because a soul, which has chosen me, will never ever fall victim to him. But woe betide him, who is in bondage to him. Because he holds on to him, until he beseeches me for help, which is also certainly granted to him. Deliver us from evil. Speak these words often out of the heart, and you will always feel my help, because with this request you confess me, because you call upon me against him, who is my opponent and your enemy. Amen. B.D. NR. 4985.



^ B.D. NR. 5428

Forgive us our debts.

4. July 1952. B.D. NR. 5428.

Forgive each other, as I forgive you. You men too often still let hostility rule; you cannot yet give love to your enemies and forgive them the debt; you are still filled with anger against them; you wish them no good, even so you refrain from evil wishes; you do not practise the necessary patience and flare up, so you get insulted and therefore live nowhere near the succession of Jesus. Love has not yet become so powerful in you that it no longer leaves space for a hostile thought. You do not see the brother in your neighbour; otherwise you would forgive him and did not feel an injury to your feelings so severe. And I am still to forgive your debt you who still act to me just as hostile, otherwise you would be without debt. My love towards you is extremely great, and the serious request for forgiveness of your debt lets you become free of your debt. And nevertheless I must place conditions on it that you also forgive your debtors, so you want to gain my forgiveness. I must do it for that reason, because you are still to firmly resolve to no longer do sin and because for this intention also love towards the neighbour must be in you, who has become guilty towards you. You are to love your neighbour like yourself. You are to hold no sin debt against him, because every hostile thought is not suitable to awaken counter love, whereas love, which you show your enemy, also awakens in him stirrings, which are to be assessed positive. Every unpleasant thought towards a man is taken up by evil powers and transmitted to him, and it can have no good effect, because evil just bears evil and for that reason is only returned evil, what quickly increases the power of evil and for that reason therefore has a negative effect. But you are to oppose evil with good, to lessen and to change to good, what is evil. You are to send out good thoughts and also wish your enemies only good, because by this you chase away bad powers, because the good thoughts have a redeeming effect, therefore soothe resentment and hate, awaken again good stirrings and can even change the enemy to a friend, because love power always has a good effect. For that reason you are to then only find forgiveness with me, when you have also forgiven your debtors, because how can I be lenient with you, you who still judge severely and have enemies, because you yourselves keep up the hostility? When my love forgives you the debt, so also let your love be lenient. Think good of your enemies; forgive those, who have insulted you; always let love judge in you, and it will certainly want to forgive, because where love is, feelings of hate and revenge cannot exist; where love is, I am myself, and I truly do not judge without love; I forgive you your debt, as you forgive your debtors. Amen. B.D. NR. 5428.
