As British pastor John Stott pointed out, "Jesus seems to have prayed for his tormentors actually while the iron spikes were being driven through his hands and feet; indeed, the imperfect tense [of the biblical account in Greek] suggests that he kept praying, kept repeating his entreaty, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”
Join in unity with Christians from throughout the Niagara Region prayer, praise & worship. As we come together in prayer, turning from our sin and seeking His face, God will cleanse us, forgive us and heal our land. See www.niagaranow.org
