What Luther Says about the Seventh Petition of the Lord's Prayer

“This petition bids for deliverance from every evil of pain and punishment, as the holy church does in the litanies. Deliver us, O Father, from your eternal wrath and from the pangs of hell. Deliver us, O Father, in death and on Judgment Day, from your severe condemnation. Deliver us from sudden death. Protect us from fire and flood, from lightning and hail. Protect us from hunger and famine. Protect us from war and bloodshed. . . . Protect us from every bodily evil and woe, to the end, however, that all this may rebound to the honor of your name, the increase of your kingdom, and [the accomplishment] of your holy will. Amen” (LW 43:38).
