but deliver us from evil
Evil is in us. Since the day man turned away from God his innermost being is not governed by ”the good”. We live totally a self-centered existence, pursue only the best things of life for us, and in the process completely lose sight of our fellow man and his needs.
Evil is all about us, and follows us through life like a shadow. It´s the cause of all the suffering and badness in the world. Worst of all, it wants to posess our souls!
Lord, come into my life, cast the evil out of my heart, and fill it with your goodness.
