LET US GO TO THE LORD IN PRAYER

Father, I come before you in the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Lord, you know all things. They are all before you like an open book. Who can hide their heart from your presence and your eye? The deeds of the most clever men are exposed before you. Your omniscience knows know bounds - and if it were not for grace, I would be of all men most terrified. But there is grace, abounding and glorious, poured out upon the weakest of men, and abounding to your glory.
Father, I praise you and I worship you; I thank you for all that you are and all that have done. There is no one like you in Heavens and on the Earth or under the earth. You are the King and there is no other. You are Savior and you share your glory with no one. Father, this day you know me and my great need of grace. Why am I here except that you called the weakest among men, the most ignoble among brothers, and that by your grace, often times, the lesser teaches the greater? That is always my case and I praise you. I worship you. Father, help us today, to the wind with eloquence, to hell with brilliant intellect, Father. Let the truth go forward. Let me be changed that the state of your church be more glorious. I pray for grace upon grace and mercy upon mercy for myself and for those who hear. Help us, Oh God, and we will be helped; and we will boast in that help in Jesus' Name. AMEN!!!

BE PRAYERFUL

But I tell you who hear me; love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. - Luke 6:27-28

Dear good and lovely friends, don't use your words to curse your enemies. instead, go to God in prayer petitioning for deliverance.

Go to God for guidance about what should be done. Trust God and pray that His justice prevails. Prayer is a such a powerful way to express love for your enemy. As Jesus suffered on the cross He prayed, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34).

 What an amazing and powerful display of love for Him to pray for people who had just physically assaulted Him and spit in His face! Hebrews 12:1 tells us that Jesus endured the shame of the cross because of the joy that awaited Him. No matter what your enemy has done, always remember that loving them ultimately brings you a joyous reward from the Father.

 SAMPLE PRAYER: Father I thank you for being a God of justice and peace. Lord I have been wronged and I don't know how to handle the situation. Please guide me and help me to walk in forgiveness toward them. Heal the resentment and anger in my heart. In Jesus name. Amen Remember, resist the natural urge to gossip and speak negative words of anger about your enemy. Instead choose to speak to God in Prayer.

  A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends. - Baltasar Gracian
