Forgive us our Debts


And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And, Lord, as duly as we pray every day for our daily bread, we pray for the forgiveness of our sins; for we are all held accountable to God, Romans 3:19(ESV) have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23(ESV) We all stumble in many ways every day. James 3:2(ESV) Who can tell how often he stumbles? Psalm 19:12(ESV) If you should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared. Psalm 130:3-4(ESV) God, be merciful to us sinners! Luke 18:13(ESV)

We have wasted our Lord’s possessions; Luke 16:1(ESV) we have buried the talents we were entrusted with. Matthew 25:18(ESV) We have not made return according to the benefit done to us; 2 Chronicles 32:25(ESV) and thus, we have come to be in debt. The Scripture has concluded us all under sin; Galatians 3:22(KJV) we have practiced such things as deserve death, Romans 1:32(ESV) things for which the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Ephesians 5:6(ESV) Our debt is more than ten thousand talents; it is a great debt, and we cannot pay. So far are we from being able to say, “Have patience with us, and we will pay everything.” Matthew 18:24-26(ESV) Justly therefore might our accuser hand us over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, to be put in prison, the prison of hell, until we should pay the last penny. Matthew 5:25-26(ESV)

But blessed be God, there is a way found out of agreeing with our accuser; for if anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous, and he is the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 2:1-2(ESV) For his sake, we entreat you, blot out all our transgressions, Psalm 51:1(ESV) and enter not into judgment with us. Psalm 143:2(ESV) He is our Guarantor, Hebrews 7:22(ESV) who restored what he did not steal, Psalm 69:4(ESV) that blessed Arbiter, who has laid his hand on us both. Job 9:33(ESV) Through him let us be reconciled to God, 2 Corinthians 5:20(ESV) and let the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands be cancelled and set aside, being nailed to the cross of Christ, that we may be made alive together with Christ, having all our trespasses forgiven us. Colossians 2:13-14(ESV) Be merciful toward our iniquities, and remember our sins no more. Hebrews 8:12(ESV)
