The parents did not say whether they may file a civil lawsuit.
They pushed for the federal government -- which is considering whether to file criminal civil rights charges against Zimmerman -- to examine the case closely.
Fulton told CBS she wants President Barack Obama to go through the case "with a fine-tooth comb."
"Today" asked them whether they may forgive Zimmerman, the 29-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer. "Forgiveness is like a healing process. Forgiveness takes time," Martin responded. "The Bible says that you have to forgive and forget, but also the healing process is a long process and the forgiving process is a long process."
On ABC, the couple was told that Zimmerman's parents have told Barbara Walters that they pray for Trayvon every day.
Zimmerman could still be held responsible for Martin's death
Asked whether they take any comfort from that, Martin said, "There's no winner in this situation."
He added, "We continue to pray that we'll find peace and strength to be forgiving parents."
Daryl Parks, an attorney for the Martin family, spoke with CNN's "New Day" about why the parents chose to do interviews now.
"Maybe Trayvon's human aspect, in the course of the case, didn't come out quite as much," he said. "As you listen to that juror (B37), she talks very deeply about George Zimmerman and humanizes George Zimmerman, when in this case Trayvon was the victim here."
