Lord, in the prayer you taught us, we ask to be forgiven our own sins as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lord, the hardest people to forgive in my heart are those who abuse and persecute others. Yet the first thing you did as you were being tortured to death was to ask the Father to forgive those who were murdering you. Help me, Lord, as I pray for my persecuted brothers and sisters, to pray also for those who persecute them, that their hearts may open.They know not what they do. Amen
