When we see great evil being carried out, part of us cries out for justice. We want to see God avenge those who defiantly oppose Him (and by faith, we know that He will). But, as difficult as it may be at times, we must also pray that God will help us to respond personally to those who are our “enemies” in such a way that they may eventually be led to be our friends, and more importantly, friends of God.Answer Question

yeah anon, what's up with that? If a question that involves the name of Jesus or prayer or Christians bothers you why do you read them?
Walkswithjesus, Yes I do pray for my enemies, I equate enemies with anyone who has offended me. I figure in this case overgeneralizing is a good thing. It is much easier when it is someone far away and not personally hurting me or mine. Probably one of the hardest things God will ask of you, but also the most rewarding. Even if they don't ever change, you change. It's really hard to stay angry or hate when you pray. God softens my heart, and I have more peace.
