06 The Lord's Prayer Forgive Us Our Trespasses
Video Lesson
When we ask God to forgive us our sins, we are acknowledging more than just the sins we know we have committed. We are confessing that we are by very nature corrupt people who desire to disobey God. We are asking God to forgive evil inclination too. We experience the tenacious character of sin when we try to change and cannot. We feel powerless. *
