A Gospel Prayer

Matthew 6:12 


1) Forgive our debts

A) Our debt before God is (personally) unpayable

B) Our God forgives debts

  1. God's forgiveness is: 
  2. Infinitely costly
  3. Eternally freeing-Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 


So what does this look like for my prayer life? 

  1. Cultivate a pattern of regular confession

          -Confession in two words: Admit and Reject.


2) As we forgive others

Matthew 6:14-15- For if you forgive others their trespass, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. 

A) Forgiven people forgive


What does this look like for my prayer life?

  1. Seek God’s strength to forgive others regularly 
  1. Prioritize people in your prayers
