Deliver us from Evil.

These words we know from the Lords prayer are very potent. Matthew 6:13 and Luke 11:4. We do live in a world full of evil, starvation, famine, wars, man made and natural such as earthquakes.

The Bible tells us that we must remove evil from around us an also not allow ourselves to fall into the temptation of it. Habakkuk 2:9, Judges 20:8. Purge is used, and so how to apply it today, to purge out all those from our community, the drug dealers, the criminal, the immoral, even the tax-dodger.

But we must also purge out on a personal level to the selfish heart, the greed and our many other failings to get right before Jesus. Galatians 1:4.
