Matthew 6:12

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

KJV and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us

TLB and forgive us our sins, just as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us.

GWT  Forgive us as we forgive others.

Call to repentance, asking for forgiveness and forgiving others is a included in the teaching gave us on prayer. Debts, sins, trespasses are synonymous. Acknowledging the wrongs we have done, repenting and forgiving the wrongs done to us by others. Just as God provides for our daily needs forgiveness is a daily thing for us to do. When Jesus was asked how many times awe should give His response was seven times seventy. He also told us if we are hit on one cheek to offer up the other one. Forgiveness is not easy but is necessary. The price Jesus paid for our forgiveness was with His own life. We should be thankful we don’t have to die to forgive because He has already done this, and thankfully He rose from the grave giving to us the keys to life. I am thankful that we are forgiven.
