THIS WEEK :::
  • Learn-by-Heart ::  
The Lord’s Prayer 
Our Father who art in heaven, 
Hallowed be Thy name, 
Thy kingdom come, 
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 
Give us this day our daily bread. 
And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us 
What does this mean? 
We pray in this petition That our Father in heaven would not look at our sins, 
Or deny our prayer because of them. We are neither worthy of the things for which we pray, 
Nor have we deserved them, But we ask that He would give them all to us by grace, 
For we daily sin much and surely deserve nothing but punishment. S
So we too will sincerely forgive 
And gladly do good to those who sin against us.

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity And in sin my mother conceived me. (Psalm 51:5)
