Forgive us our Debts as we Forgive our Debtors (Matthew 6:9-13)Bro. Mike Meade, April 29, 2018
Part of the Prayer 101: Learning to Talk to God series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Are you harboring bitterness toward someone over a past transgression? If you do, you can never truly go to God to ask Hid forgiveness for your own transgressions.
The model prayer says that we are to ask God to forgive our debts as we forgive our debtors. So if we have never fully forgiven others, and let go of the bitterness and vengeance that holds us back, then how can we expect our Lord to do the same for us?

9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11Give us this day our daily bread. 12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. (KJV)
