Pray for Your Enemies

Pray for Your Enemies October 25, 2012

Today make an enemies list.  Think about those who have wronged you, who have it out for you, people you would avoid if you could.  Create different categories–people you know personally, enemies you don’t know personally (TV commentators who always get under your skin might come to mind), and then national enemies–those we go to war against militarily or economically.

Then spend time, however long it takes, praying through that list.  Pray for the forgiveness of your enemies, for their flourishing and well being.  Pray that you will be reconciled to them.
