Herman Hoeksema on the fifth petition: "That is
the amazing wonder and boldness of this petition. We do not say:
‘Father, last week we sinned,’ or, ‘Yesterday we sinned,’ or, ‘This
morning we sinned; please forgive.’ But we say: ‘Father, we are

praying. Please dismiss our debts from Thy book, and clothe us with
righteousness in Thy judgment. And Father, we must have an answer.
Please give us the unspeakably blessed assurance and peace of
forgiveness in our hearts.’ This is indeed a great wonder! We are, of
