"We don't pray, 'Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who ask us to.'
We say 'as we forgive those who trespass against us.'
It's not a matter of ignoring what's been done. When God forgives he doesn't merely overlook our trespasses. He doesn't ask us to overlook others' trespasses either--he asks us to forgive them. So that means our Christian obligation (our duty as a Christ-follower) is to forgive anybody who has invaded our rights, our territory, our comfort, our self-image, whether they acknowledge the invasion or not."
