In the gospel for February 16, 2016 Jesus teaches us how we should pray. We shouldn’t babble on and on like the pagans because God knows what’s in our hearts before we even say it. Instead we should keep it brief, allow God’s will to be done and keep his name holy. We are also asking God to forgive us as we forgive our neighbors. Therefore if we want God to forgive us we must be able to forgive those who hurt us.
