From the series 'Prayer Fuelled Mission' - Freedom from Debt (Matt 6:9-15)
We should ask God for forgiveness and can ask for forgiveness. The problem comes with the words in this prayer, ‘as we.’ Christians understand that God wants to forgive them of their sins; He showed that by sending His Son to die for them. They can accept the idea that they are supposed to forgive others, as hard as that may be. Things get serious when they put in the words ‘as we.’ This is an invitation to examine ourselves. Why is this important? What do we need to lay down before Him and let go of?
