The Lord's Prayer Empty
PostSubject: The Lord's Prayer   The Lord's Prayer EmptyThu Jul 12, 2012 8:34 am

The original King James Version of the Lord's Prayer The traditional version of the Lord's Prayer is based on the King James Bible from AD 1611.
In Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV) we read:-
"Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen".
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note that there are small differences between the Lord's prayer as it is traditionally recited, and the King James version :-
Traditional: "And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us."
or
(KJV) "And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors."

I’m wondering how many pray for their debts to be forgiven? And, how many are willing to forgive their debtors?

What would happen if all debts were forgiven? That includes Governments, business and personal. Any ideas?

Remember that even the King James version is a translation - but I do think your idea is one whose time has come -from financial to personal debt.
