Debts and Debtors are commercial words mostly used in banks and financial institutions but Trespass and Trespassers sound nearest to the sense what we mean in our prayer.

The emphasis must be on the grace that we have received in salvation through faith in Christ 's doing and dying. Since we have been forgiven, the inclination of our heart will be to forgive those who fail us. This becomes a little more clear when we realise that we cannot forgive perfectly anyway. Being like God in every way is the goal of the truly saved individual, and it is the command of Jesus Matt 5 48. Since we are far from perfect in anything including forgiving even if have forgiven others 'failures we remain absolutely dependent on the grace and mercy of the Father in Christ knowing full well without this we would be lost forever. Even in our worst moments of bitterness, grudge bearing, and lack of forgiveness, this grace and mercy prevail. We trust in our Saviour 's ability to forgive perfectly imputed to us when we believed rather than our feeble at most attempts to gain us acceptance with the Father through forgiving others. This part of the Lord 's Prayer reminds us of God 's requirement, our failure to measure up, and Christ 's selfless act to redeem us. To God be the glory.
