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.”
“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.”
Thank you for following along in this short blog of the prayer example… I hope you continue to study and draw near to God.
