Jesus was using this moment in the middle of the Lord’s Prayer to teach the disciples a deeper principle of the Kingdom he had come to establish. While the disciples were used to a system that demanded they cleaned themselves up before coming into God’s presence, Jesus was teaching them about grace.
Father forgive us is a daily invitation to examine our hearts and come clean in the presence of God. The grace we receive from the Father in our moments of weakness is not a reason to continue in sin, but the power to walk free.
