Scripture Lesson: Matthew 6:9-15

On this date in 1999 Paul Byrd of the Phillies plunks Braves catcher Eddie Perez precipitating a bench clearing brawl between the already unfriendly ball clubs. As the battle rages on, the two instigators are discovered praying with each other when the pitcher’s prayer for forgiveness is overheard by the angry batter.

Our Scripture lesson today is a very familiar passage. Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount teaches his disciples how to pray. This prayer is one of the most dangerous prayers in the Bible. Jesus teaches us to pray by asking for forgiveness as we forgive others. Paul Byrd was genuine in asking for forgiveness. As a strong believer he knew what he must do and peace was made then and there. What a mighty witness for the Lord to see two Christian players praying with each other in the middle of a bench clearing brawl.

1. Why is it hard sometimes to forgive?

2. Do we want God to forgive us when we do wrong?

3. How good are we at forgiving others who wrong us? Watch out for the answer.

If we want God to forgive us when we pray, we had better be sure to forgive others first!
