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
