My God,
You have commanded us to love our enemies and to pray for those who persecute us. I come to You now with a heavy heart, seeking Your guidance and strength to pray for my enemies. Please grant me the grace to release any anger, bitterness, or resentment I may still hold against them, and help me to see them through Your eyes, with compassion and understanding.

I lift up my enemies to You, knowing that they are also Your children, and that You desire for them to experience Your love and forgiveness. I ask that You would soften their hearts and open their eyes to Your truth. May they come to know the peace and joy that can only be found in a relationship with You. I pray for their well-being, both physically and spiritually, and I ask that You would protect them from harm and lead them on the path to righteousness.

As I pray for my enemies, I also ask that You would continue to work in my own heart, molding me into the image of Your Son. Help me to be quick to forgive, slow to anger, and always ready to extend grace and mercy, just as You have freely given to me. May my life be a reflection of Your love and kindness, even in the face of adversity. Thank You, Lord, for the transforming power of Your love, and for the strength to overcome the challenges that come with loving our enemies. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
