Devotional Thought for Today – 02/25/2022

Prayer Series XLII

We continue with excerpts from Reformed Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer.

Matthew 6:5-15, Luke 11:2-4

The Petitions (continued)

As we forgive those who trespass against us

[Here] we are taught the great importance of a forgiving spirit . . . It fills a prominent place in the Lord’s Prayer. The only profession we make in all that prayer is that of forgiving those who trespass against us. It is a test of being forgiven ourselves.

J.C. Ryle

It is an argument to persuade us of forgiveness from God of our wrongs when we forgive men their wrongs done against us.

David Dickson

Bible Proof Texts: 1 Samuel 24:10, 2 Corinthians 2:10.
