A Touching Prayer for Your Enemies (Bless your enemies with this heartwarming prayer)

As we prepare to say this prayer, let’s reflect on the love of Christ. Remember how He sacrificed Himself for all of us. Think about He answered the Pharisees with patience and kindness even though all they did was plot His demise.

In the end, even when He was in pain, instead of cursing those who persecuted Him, He prayed for their forgiveness. Think about how we can all be like Jesus towards our enemies.

With our hearts open to the Holy Spirit, let us pray for our enemies.

Our Loving and Merciful Father,

We come to you with a lot of struggle within ourselves, asking that you may fill us with the love of Christ so we may overcome the temptation to curse those who curse us or wish evil upon those who wish us evil.

Instead, Lord Jesus, we ask that the Holy Spirit of God reminds us that we are as flawed as our enemies in your eyes. That their sin is not greater than ours.

So, teach us to be humble when we pray for them.

Heavenly Father, may you fill us with your love so that we may show compassion even to those who wish us harm in their time of need. May we be Christ-like and feed them when they are hungry.

Give them water when they are thirsty. May the Lord grant us wisdom and self-control so that we may overcome evil with good deeds.

May the Holy Spirit teach us to tame our tongues to answer them with gentleness so that we may not stir up their anger. May we always remember that God will reward us according to our deeds.

If we sow love, we will reap love.

Dear Lord, help us to love our enemies and do good to them in fulfillment of what Jesus commanded His disciples. May we always remember to pray for those who persecute us so that the Lord’s face may shine upon them.

May the Lord Almighty lift up His countenance upon them and give them peace that surpasses their understanding.

Above all, we pray that we will be as forgiving as our Father in Heaven so that we may also be forgiven. We pray this, believing and trusting in Jesus’ name.
