Pray for Your Enemies
Chosen by God!
When we are falsely accused or abused, we should pray for justice, but our goal should always be to uphold God’s righteousness. Psalms 7 shows believers what to do when lawlessness is out of control. We should pray, tell God what is going on, then seek help and direction from God. In all we face we are to imitate Jesus with our interactions with people, especially difficult people. We can use the resources available to us, both naturally and spiritually. We must also recognize the battle we are fighting.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places.” (Ephesians 6:12 AMP)
We must pray for our enemies and choose love whenever possible!
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.” (Luke 6:27-28 NKJV)
Abba, Father, help me to:
Love my enemies. Bless those that curse me. Do good for those that hate me. Pray for those that spitefully use me and persecute me.
This is hard to do in the natural. Thankfully, we don't do it alone!
"For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love." (Romans 5:5 NLT)
