the words of the father

Yosef was overcome by rachamim (feelings of mercy) for his brothers. Even he was shocked by this, he thought he had steeled himself against this, what got the better of him? Rashi explains Yosef was caught off guard because of his father's prayers that his brothers should find favor in his eyes.

I think we should follow Yaakov Avinu's example.. but on a larger scale: What if we prayed to HaShem each day that we should all have tremendous rachamim on each and every member of Klal Yisrael? May HaShem answer our prayers in the merit of Yaakov Avinu whose very same prayers were answered.
