260靈修 Jan 17, 2013 馬太福音 Matthew 6:5-13

第六章
最好能將全章略讀一遍,再專注於以下經文段落:
5你們禱告的時候、不可像那假冒為善的人、愛站在會堂裏、和十字路口上禱
告、故意叫人看見.我實在告訴你們、他們已經得了他們的賞賜。6你禱告的
時候、要進你的內屋、關上門、禱告你在暗中的父、你父在暗中察看、必然
報答你。7你們禱告、不可像外邦人、用許多重複話.他們以為話多了必蒙垂
聽。8你們不可效法他們.因為你們沒有祈求以先、你們所需用的、你們的父
早已知道了。9所以你們禱告、要這樣說.我們在天上的父、願人都尊你的名
為聖。10願你的國降臨。願你的旨意行在地上、如同行在天上。11我們日用
的飲食、今日賜給我們。12免我們的債、如同我們免了人的債。13不叫我們
遇見試探.救我們脫離凶惡。〔或作脫離惡者〕因為國度、權柄、榮耀、全
是你的直到永遠、阿們。〔有古卷無因為至阿們等字〕

默想: 主禱文:
主啊,我不能說「我們」... 若我的信仰中不能容納其他人和他們的需要。
主啊,我不能說「在天上的」... 若我只專注地上的事。
主啊,我不能說「父」... 若我不能在每天生活中活像你。
主啊,我不能說「願人都尊你的名為聖」... 若我以你的名蒙召卻不聖潔。
主啊,我不能說「願你的國降臨」... 若我沒有在我生命中以你為掌權的。
主啊,我不能說「在地上如同在天上」... 除非我真的準備此時此地事奉你。
主啊,我不能說「我們日用的飲食,今日賜給我們」... 而沒誠實地做一天的工作,
且不想到那些不幸的人的需要。
主啊,我不能說「免了我們的債,如同我們免了人的債」... 若我心中仍對弟兄或姐妹
心懷怨恨。
主啊,我不能說「不叫我們遇見試探」... 若我故意留在容易受引誘的地方。
主啊,我不能說「救我們脫離兇惡」... 若我不願對社會的不公採取立場。
主啊,我不能說「國度、權柄、榮耀全是你的」... 若我不願降服於基督,稱祂為王。
若我不相信你會在我生命中工作,若我因驕傲,尋求自己的榮耀。
主啊,我不能說「阿門」... 除非我能真誠地說,「願你旨意成全,這是我的禱祈」。

禱告與筆錄:
繼續安靜在神面前聆聽神,並將你的的思想、問題、觸動你的字、詞、圖
畫,或是與神的禱告,寫在你的靈程筆記簿上面。

今日箴言:1:24-28
24我呼喚,你們不肯聽從,我伸手,無人理會,25反輕棄我一切的勸
誡,不肯受我的責備。26你們遭災難,我就發笑;驚恐臨到你們,我必嗤
笑。27驚恐臨到你們好像狂風,災難來到如同暴風,急難痛苦臨到你們
身上。28那時,你們必呼求我,我卻不答應;懇切地尋找我,卻尋不見。

Chapter 6
If possible, read the whole chapter to see the full picture of what is happening here.
Then focus on the following section:
5”And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing
in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth,
they have received their reward in full. 6But when you pray, go into your room, close
the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what
is done in secret, will reward you. 7And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like
pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8Do not be
like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9”This, then, is how you should pray: “ ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your
name, 10your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 11Give us
today our daily bread. 12Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

Meditation
Lord, I cannot say “Our”… if my faith has no room for other people and their needs.
Lord, I cannot say “Father”… if I fail to resemble You in the way I live my daily life.
Lord, I cannot say “Who are in Heaven”… if my attention is focused only on earthly things.
Lord, I cannot say “Hallowed be Thy name”… if I who am called by your name am not holy.
Lord, I cannot say “Thy Kingdom come”… if I fail to acknowledge your sovereignty in my
life.
Lord, I cannot say “On earth as it is in Heaven”… unless I am truly ready to serve You here
and now.
Lord, I cannot say “Give us this day our daily bread”… without doing an honest day’s work,
and without considering the needs of those less fortunate.
Lord, I cannot say “Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors”… if I harbor a grudge
against my brother or sister.
Lord, I cannot say “Lead us not into temptation”… if I deliberately choose to remain in a
situation where I am likely to be tempted. Lord, I cannot say “Deliver us from evil”… if I am
not prepared to take a stand against injustice in my society.
Lord, I cannot say “Thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory”… if I do not submit to
Christ as King, if I fail to trust You to act in my life, or if in pride I seek my own glory.
Lord, I cannot say “Amen”… unless I can honestly say, “Come what may, this is my prayer.”

Prayer & Journaling:
On your prayer journal, as you listen to God, write down a few thoughts, questions,
words, names, drawings, or anything that has come to your mind during this time.
Proverbs for Today: Prov 1:24-28

Family Time:
Read over the Lord’s prayer once. Discuss difficult words as you read. Then end
the time with the whole family reciting it together as a prayer to God.
