A Prayer for My Enemies

Lord Jesus,
You once asked us to love our enemies
And to pray for those who hurt us.

Hear my prayer today,
For my love is not perfect
And my prayer is never complete.

There are some people I just do not know how to pray for;
I do not know how to be reconciled with them,
But you are the source of all reconciliation,
And through your blood,
You offered loving forgiveness to every sinner.

Bless me and my enemy,
As you would see fit,
And lead us one day
To that perfect reconciliation
That comes from you alone.

Amen.
