In the Lord’s Prayer Jesus calls us to remember we are weak and that we need the Lord’s protection. As we live in this world we have, what one person described, as the ‘unholy trinity’ attacking us. Three of them (the devil, the World, and Flesh) united in their desire to see God’s work in

Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string” vs. Jesus Christ: “Give us our daily bread”.
