Q. 105. What do we pray for in the fifth petition?
A. In the fifth petition, which is, “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors”, we pray that God, for Christ's sake, would freely pardon all our sins; which we are encouraged to ask, because by his grace we are enabled from the heart to forgive others.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
