We are to pray to God only
What it is to pray in Christ's name
Why we are to pray in his name

the Spirit's help in prayer; for whom and for what we
are to pray


The opinion of the ancients about it
Nor they who have sinned the sin unto death

What that sin is

Whether now commmitted
Doubts about it resolved

What things we are to pray for

QUEST. CLXXXV. How we are to pray

How the word of God directs herein
What expressions equivalent to promises
Promises of outward blessings

Of spiritual and temporal

Promises to the afflicted

To the depressed in prayer

What intended in praying for bread
Why we call it ours

What we are to understand by this day
This petition respects ourselves and others

QUEST. CXCIV. The fifth Petition explained

The case of man when charged with guilt
Pardon, none but God can give it
All are to pray for it

How God is to be considered when we pray thus
Of our forgiving others
What meant thereby
Arguments to induce thereunto
Of doing it without satisfaction
An objection answered

When a sign of God's forgiving us

QUEST. CXCV. The sixth Petition explained

What this Petition supposes
How God tempts, and why
God not the cause of sin―in note
Deliver us from evil, how understood
Temptations arise from prosperity

From adversity

From the flesh

From Satan

When from him, and when from ourselves
Remarks upon Satan's temptations
They increase sin

Are suited to every age
And to the tempers of men
He endeavours to prevent conviction
To hinder preaching the gospel
To prevent closing with Christ
He injects blasphemous thoughts
He tempts to despair

How we are to pray against temptation
