Praying for Your Enemies

One of Jesus’ most unexpected and difficult commands comes to mind as both Canada and the United States are embroiled in elections, and as my normally rather sedate blog has endured some intemperance by both the blogger and some commentators!

So here’s a thought: Before we write a blog post or a comment on some else’s, and especially if we’re angry, let’s pray for objects of our irritation or outrage first—really pray.

More truth in love, and less selfish I’ve-gotta-get-this-off-my-chest-you-jerk communication would surely result.

Amen?
