Prayers in the Bible: Jesus forgives His crucifiers

Luke 23:34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.” (WEB)

Jesus, again, our perfect example, prayed this, while He was on the cross, dying for me. He asked the Father to forgive those who crucified Him, Roman soldiers, temple servants, priests, probably Pilate. In a way, that includes me, too. But for my sin, He wouldn't have had to be crucified. What a thought!

This is one of a series on Prayers in the Bible. The previous post is here.
