Heavenly Father, thank You for the blessings of this day! Lord, I have heard it said, “Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” And too often, I have lived that way. But You tell us, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that we may be your sons and daughters.” You cause your sun to rise on the evil and the good alike, and You send rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If we love those who love us what reward will we get? Lord, please teach us, help us, enable us to love without limit. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Prayer from Matthew 5:43-46 New International Version 1984
