Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you…
Even when we don’t trust others,
Father, may we offer peace.
Even when they hate and curse us,
May we serve them, doing good.
Even when we fear them deeply,
May we help and bless them all,
And even when they treat us badly,
May we pray for them, with love.
…pray for those who mistreat you (Luke 6:27-8; NIV).
