Does God lead us into temptation?

In the Our Father, we say “lead us not into temptation”. Why would God lead us into temptation? I thought the devil did that. Wouldn’t it be better to say," lead us from temptation and deliver us from evil ?"

This link should help you to understand that line in the Our Father prayer. If you have any further questions or concerns that are not answered by this link, please contact Catholic Answers directly.
