Prayer For Our Enemies

Another prayer that is part of a prayer rule for some.

Lord Jesus Christ, in Your great mercy You prayed for the forgiveness of those who crucified You, and You taught us to love our enemies and to pray for those who persecute us.

Lord, I pray that You forgive those who treat me unjustly and speak out against me, and that You bless them and guide them according to Your will.

Take away any bitterness I may have in my heart against them.

Lord, may Your forgiveness, goodness and love be revealed in all of us, to Your praise and glory.

Amen.

May my heart of stone become a heart of flesh, day by day, by God’s grace and His mercy. Lord, have mercy.
