Hard Prayers

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, September 11, 2017

The highest commandments for those who follow Jesus tell us to love God and one another. To love others with a Christian love means to seek their good, even when we do not feel like it or “others” are behaving in a way that makes it very difficult to wish anything good for them. Even more shocking, Jesus calls us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. On this day when we remember acts of great destruction, let us pray not only for the innocents who died, but for those who wished them dead.
