    Luke's version of the Lord's Prayer is great, it shows clearly that it is not finances only that should be forgiven like some believe from the Matthew version which uses debts. Luke says sins. And I know that Jesus explains the Matthew version and uses the term trespasses. So from these two versions of the Lord's Prayer we should forgive debts trespasses and sins. Glory to God and glory to Jesus.

    "Lord, teach us to pray..." The Lord DOES teach us! He gives us precisely the words to use; and He tells us all about HOW to pray. It is our own UNBELIEF and lack of determination that accepts obstacles and contradictions as indisputable; instead of tenaciously clinging to the urgency of our need, and not accepting a "No" from Him who alone can help us. How badly do you need? THEN PRAY LIKE IT!

    The chapter shows the passion of Jesus, the High Priest, in his vehemently urging repentence to gain the Holy Spirit of God. And who is blessed of God? Those who hear the word and keep it. The word of God exists in no other place than the Bible. To hear first ye must read, study until understanding truly occurs. It is hard, hard to do but but this is importunity that Jesus preaches. Glory be
