    Q. 106. What do we pray for in the sixth request?

    A. 106. In the sixth request (which is, And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil) we pray that God would either keep us from being tempted to sin, or support and deliver us when we are tempted.


    Q. 107. What does the conclusion attached to the Lord’s Prayer teach us?

    A. 107. The conclusion attached to the Lord’s Prayer (which is, For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever, Amen) teaches us to take our encouragement in prayer from God only, and in our prayers to praise him, ascribing kingdom, power and glory to him. And in testimony of our desire and assurance to be heard, we say, Amen.
