Pray for those who persecute you. – Mt. 5:44

Reflection.  If you are going to have real joy in your heart and soul you must be willing to forgive.  The best way to forgive is to pray for that person.  No family can live in harmony without repeated acts of forgiveness.  However, you do not have to become a doormat for anyone.

Prayer.  Father, I forgive, but I need help with my bad feelings.  I know that in time those feelings will evaporate as long as the offending party changes.
