Why does the Lords prayer read "Lead us not into temptation?"

Why does the Lords prayer read "Lead us not into temptation?" when God tempts no one ?

The Lord Himself was led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit to be tempted there by satan

You could say "God led Himself to be tempted , as  He who could not sin would not sin and neither did the tempting

However if we are followers of Jesus we must ask "why indeed might we not expect to be led into temptation while being tested"

The answer lies not in being tempted [as temptation was never a sin] but only sinful to the one tempting Luke 17:1; Matthew 18:7; in this satan has a millstone tied around his neck Mark 9:42; Mark 5:13; so spirits find another home and the sea can be more than a material/physical  sea.

The children here , being those of the faith who are made to stumble from a faith already built up and strong as in Mark 9:39 hence verse 42 and "do not hinder a little one" and nothing to do with "children" rather "children of God the Father"

And so it states "BUT deliver us from the evil one"....why would we need deliverance from the evil one if we are cocooned in protection ?

Its simply "direct us away from temptation"

Mark 9:42 under the context of Temptations and Trespasses

And the disciples being sent out in two's given authority by Jesus to cast out demons and heal the sick, saw a man casting out demons in "Jesus name" whether being a disciple of John the baptist or someone else we do not know but nonetheless the disciples tried to "hinder" him.

The disciples here being led out in two's and being tempted to hinder another

So many times when a person is being used of God there are some who will speak out against the person,
maybe Matthew 7:22 because they are not seen as "in the group" being called or chosen.Mark 16:17

The word "Child" here not being confused with Mark 9:37 [greatest in the Kingdom] -[believing likened to a child] the ongoing text is about a man casting out demons in "Jesus" name, whereby the disciples tried to stop or make him stumble, whereby they were to "cut off" those things that hindered
whether hands or eyes, that were used [where two or three are gathered].

The Headship being Christ and the disciples submitting to this
