Paragraph 4. God did from all eternity decree to justify all the elect, and Christ did in the fullness of time die for their sins, and rise again for their justification; nevertheless, they are not justified personally, until the Holy Spirit does in due time actually apply Christ to them.
Q.112: What do we pray for in the fifth petition?
A. In the fifth petition, which is, And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors, we pray that God, for Christ’s sake, would freely pardon all our sins, which we are rather encouraged to ask because by His grace we are enabled from the heart to forgive others.
And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. Luke 11:4a
