Do you pray the Lord’s prayer?
It’s innocent, but unnecessary. Why, because each aspect of the “model prayer” got answered through Christ on the cross at Calvary.
Born under the Law, Jesus was confined to its perimeters when teaching. Much of what He taught related directly to those who had been raised and educated under the legal framework (the Law given by Moses).
Today, we are not under the Law but Grace, meaning everything the Law demanded Jesus fulfilled and supplied us through His death, burial and resurrection. So for example, you are completely forgiven because of Jesus, not working through a check-list of people to forgive!
Remember, if it is of “works” it is no longer Grace. Forgiveness is no less important because it helps us, but in no way changes the Father’s abounding, uncaused love towards us, as revealed through His Son.
