Good morning, Loved Ones:

We made it! This morning is day seven of our seven day journey into the Lord’s Prayer. We have taken our time to break down all seven sentences of the New King James Version of Matthew 6:9-13, The Lord’s Prayer. 

Today, we focus on the second sentence of verse 13 and the final sentence of the prayer, For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”

In this verse of The Lord’s Prayer, Jesus is speaking and teaching about the same manner in which the prayer began. The Lord’s prayer begins by giving glory to God and holiness of His name. The prayer ends by again confirming that there is none like our God Jehovah.

Some bible scholars say that no other translation of this last sentence are worded in this manner, except for the King James Version. In saying that, there are still passages in the bible that support and confirm the closing line of the prayer. Let’s look at 1 Chronicles 29:11.

1 Chronicles 29:11 

New King James Version (NKJV)

11 Yours, O Lordis the greatness,
The power and the glory,
The victory and the majesty;
For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours;
Yours is the kingdom, O Lord,
And You are exalted as head over all.

Today, rest in knowing that there truly is no one greater and no one like our God, Jehovah.

So, the next time you pray the Lord’s Prayer, think about this series that we just completed and pray the prayer with power and authority. End the prayer boldly with AMEN, because we come into agreement with all that we have said and ask God to let it be so. 


Matthew 6:9-13

New King James Version (NKJV)

In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.
