Give Us & Forgive Us
In the Pattern for Prayer series, Bishop Ellis uses the out line of the Lord’s Prayer to show how Jesus Himself gives insight into how to communicate with the Creator of the universe. The first book, entitled Our Father…Hallowed Be Thy Name, outlines the pattern for prayer beginning with recognizing who God is and what He does. The second book, Thy Kingdom Come, outlines the next heading in the model prayer: the call for God’s Kingdom to come and for His will to be done.
Bishop Ellis continues the series with Give Us and Forgive Us, navigating the most crucial topics of prayer every believer should understand to make it in this world; provision and forgiveness. When you make the petitions for provision and forgiveness, you are submitting yourself to God, acknowledging your dependence upon Him for His supply and approval.
