Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us

What this means for us

We don’t deserve anything we pray for. We sin every day, and all we deserve is punishment.

But, in this prayer, we are asking: “Father, do not look at our sins or refuse to listen to our prayers because of them. Instead, give us everything we need simply out of your kindness.”

In the same way, when people sin against us, we will gladly forgive them and be kind to them.
