Mark 11

25 But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.*"

The Authority of Jesus Challenged
27 Again they entered Jerusalem. As Jesus was walking through the Temple area, the leading priests, the teachers of religious law, and the elders came up to him.28 They demanded, "By what authority are you doing all these things? Who gave you the right to do them?"
  29 "I'll tell you by what authority I do these things if you answer one question," Jesus replied.30 "Did John's authority to baptize come from heaven, or was it merely human? Answer me!"
  31 They talked it over among themselves. "If we say it was from heaven, he will ask why we didn't believe John.32 But do we dare say it was merely human?" For they were afraid of what the people would do, because everyone believed that John was a prophet.33 So they finally replied, "We don't know."
  And Jesus responded, "Then I won't tell you by what authority I do these things."
