The Lord’s Prayer is so incredible, because it is more than just words we say to God — it is a blueprint of how Jesus wants us to live. And no part of the prayer is more central to what Jesus plans for us than the part about forgiveness.
To better understand the importance Jesus places on forgiveness, let’s listen to the many different times Jesus taught about this topic (produced by hearingGod.tv).
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory for ever. Amen.
P.S. — I would like to officially forgive ___________ today. Please forgive me for holding onto this hurt. Thank you for your cleansing. Amen.
