But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.
Heavenly Father, your love and acceptance don’t stop. You are the well of grace and love that I must draw from daily.
Help me today to love those who are hard for me to love. Humble me in their presence and show me a side of them I’ve been too prideful to see.
Be with those people and protect them. Whatever past pain or hurt is causing them to lash out, bring it to the surface and heal them.
Thank you for your redemptive nature and your ability to break down walls among your children.
Through Christ I pray, amen.
