What happened when I prayed for Bosnia

I'm not sure exactly how it happened—whether first I started reading newspaper articles about the need for forgiveness in Bosnia and then I started praying, or if I had been praying about forgiveness and then started reading about Bosnia. Whichever, one day I found myself earnestly praying to support man's ability to forgive his fellowman, especially in Bosnia.

One newspaper article I'd read argued that it would be impossible for people to forgive if they had lost a family member in the Bosnian conflict. It went on to describe in detail the mourning for dead relatives and people's refusal to let go of their hatred for those who had committed war crimes.
