The Lord’s Prayer – 4 – Forgive Us Our Trespasses
One of the most often recited parts of the Bible is the Lord’s Prayer. But didn’t Jesus tell us not to make prayer a rote exercise? Maybe Jesus had something else in mind. In this new series, The Lord’s Prayer, we take an expanded look at what Jesus was teaching Christians about prayer.

This is Bill Jacobs for LifeResource Ministries. Today we’re continuing our series on The Lord’s Prayer. If you’ve not heard any of the previous presentations in this series, you can find them on our Website, liferesource.org. Our presentation today is the fifth one of the series. It’s title is Forgive Us Our Trespasses.
So far this series, I’ve reiterated the foundational points of the series. And I suppose I should cover them again, in case this is the first time some of our listeners or readers are with us. So, briefly, The Lord’s Prayer is not called The Lord’s Prayer in the Bible. That’s a term invented by humans. Jesus was not giving us something to recite – a prayer – but an outline of what to pray about. He even said that – “Pray like this.” The idea being, if we want God to listen to us, this is how to go about it. So let’s begin – Matthew 6:12.
