Stephen Prays for Mercy for His Persecutors

Acts 7:54-60

While they were stoning Stephen, he prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Then he knelt down and cried out in a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he died. Acts 7:59-60 NRSV

“Lord do not hold this against them.” When is the last time you prayed for someone who offended you?
