And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us: Poetic Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer (7)

Us our
A petition to God

As we
In response to love given

Boldly confident and astonishingly communal
Participation in sanctification

Requesting a return from God
Grace with and through others

A heart for Him who gives all
To forgive is to be forgiven

Forgiveness offers freedom
When freely offered to others

Order of operation
Love first
