IT IS A PRAYER OF FORGIVENESS, REPENTANCE AND HEALING ALL IN ONE
The Our Father is the best of all prayers because it is the Lord’s Prayer, taught us by Jesus Christ Himself, and because it is a prayer of perfect and unselfish love. See Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4.
When we say “and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us,” we pray that God will pardon the sins by which we have offended Him, and we tell Him that we pardon our fellow men who have offended us.
For if you forgive men their offenses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you your offenses. But if you do not forgive men, neither will your heavenly Father forgive you your offenses. (Matthew 6:14-15)
When we say “and lead us not into temptation,” we pray that God will always give us the grace to overcome the temptations to sin which come to us from the world, the flesh, and the devil.
Because thou wast acceptable to God, it was necessary that temptation should prove thee. (Tobias 12:13)
When we say “but deliver us from evil,” we pray that God will always protect us from harm, and especially from harm to our souls.
I do not pray that thou take them out of the world, but that thou keep them from evil. (John 17:15)
