I can't imagine what I said to make you say the above.Asking is not the same as doing.
I know this quite well.
The Jews in the O.T. understood their sins to be forgiven EVERY TIME they made a sacrifice to God. Did they sacrifice only ONE animal in their entire lives?If I ask for a plate to be passed, it is not the same as if I pass the plate.
Jesus ask God the Father to forgive them. He is praying for unrepentant sinners, showing them emence love and grace in seeking their benefit. He did not forgive them.
Yes God has forgiven me my sins.
He did it when I turned in repentance to him.
You need to fit Luke 17 into your understanding of forgiveness, as well as how the Jews in the OT understood how forgiveness worked.
As to Luke 17...the verse please.
