Love & Prayer for Your Enemies

Are you having some not so-subtle enemy problems?

“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”

~ Matthew 5:44-45

Jesus teaches us how to respond to our enemies: we are to love them from the heart, and to pray for them to be blessed by God.

Don’t worry, by loving them and sincerely praying for God to bless them, we are not condoning their attacks on us. We are simply seeing the big picture of their soul, their need of the forgiveness and salvation of Christ just as much as we do.

Besides, you may be the only person in their world that is highly motivated to love them and to pray for them to be blessed by God in this life, and the life to come!
