Jesus teaches us to pray to the Father about our spiritual needs. The Lord’s Prayer acknowledges our fallen nature.


It says that as we repent, God will forgive us.

The Lord’s Prayer goes further by commanding us to forgive others. As we ask God for forgiveness, we also have to forgive those who sinned against us. As our gracious heavenly Father forgives our debts, we forgive our debtors. Forgiveness is not an option.

Christ was so serious about this truth that He told His disciples that if they did not forgive others, God would not forgive them.

This is a principle Christians must follow. 

We also have a spiritual enemy who wants you to fall, we need to ask God to keep us from falling into temptation. 
Studying the Lord’s Prayer in detail helps us to use it the way Jesus intended. It is not meant to be repeated verbatim; rather, it serves as a model for how to pray daily.

“and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭12‬ ‭

“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭13‬ ‭

Thank you for following along in this short blog of the prayer example… I hope you continue to study and draw near to God.

Deep Roots Ministries International, Inc.

What does Deep Roots Ministries do? We encourage believers to grow spiritually in Christ by discipleship. Continuing the works Jesus did. How do we do that? We study God’s Word to develop a Biblical worldview. Scriptures identify God’s plan for our lives. God’s will to us is revealed in His Word. Together we spend time reading the Bible and studying the Truths of the Word of God. Where do you do this? In our home and others homes with family and friends (small groups), teaching videos, and meetings. Where we are invited to share. Colossians 2:6-7 And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. 7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
