The Lord's prayer is not just a formula but a program of life and relationship. Human existence has meaning as a continuous desire for a reality beyond history: the coming of God's Kingdom. The first three petitions refer to this. The last three are concerned with the present: daiy bread, forgiveness and protection from evil. Also these are view of the first three. Jesus insists that fraternal forgiveness is an essential condition for obtaining pardon from God.
