2. "Father, Forgive Them....." From Jesus' life we can learn to Forgive those who have wounded us..... and thus, be freed from bitterness:

Luke 23:34 Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."
And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. NIV

This is one of the most significant and difficult prayers contained in the Bible: one of Jesus' prayer as He hung dying on the cross. What led up to this prayer? Jesus had spent hours of suffering on the cross.....had been beaten..... humiliated.... jeered..... laughed at..... but, his last words were.....to His Father in heaven "Father, forgive them"....for they know not what they do. Jesus, the Savior of the world, the Lord of the universe, the sacrificial Lamb for the sins of the world, in excruciating pain, called out to His Father.... and played the advocate for those who conspired and consorted to crucify Him....those who treated him ....the Son of God as a criminal.... those whose sin put Jesus on the cross to die. Jesus, the Lamb of God, perfect, holy, without sin, treated as a criminal for no reason.....then crucified.
