I reckon if you are to love your neighbor as yourself, you should pray as praying for yourself. For example, if you believed the democrat party loved the U.S.A., your rationale side would hope and pray the good Lord brought you back to being in touch with reality. So I guess we should pray for those democrat supporting folk, in my example, that they see the light and return to reality.

The Lord's prayer is a good place to start.

And if that don't work, pray they are forgiven their sins, after they're smote!

I was listening to Dr Stanley when I heard him pray for misery upon those obtuse in their denial. I got a yellow light when I heard it and was hoping I could get conformation it IS a green light.

Sounding like, not so much. frown

I've never considered prayer a waste of time, but this may be an exception.

Everyone has until they take their last breath to ask Jesus into their heart. We are to love the person and hate the sin they are committing. I struggle praying for certain people, but I know I should. Power and money will not get you eternal life. Only Jesus. Less about me more about Jesus.


It is more blessed to give than to receive

First, I don't claim to be some holy roller, but I do know pray is a real and powerful.

If it was my pray, I would pray for strength, pray for finding the good in people and your enemies. Pray that you can show those kindness and love for those that you resent. I also would pray to give you the help, strength for the first step to show that kindness to people.

Open your bible and see what Jesus says about it . Not what Mark or what anybody else says. Pretty sure you won't like the answer. It doesn't involve politics.

Pray for them the way you'd want them to pray for you and your family. If they're sick, pray for healing. If you've wronged them somehow, pray that they'd forgive you. If they've wronged you, acknowledge your forgiveness towards them in your prayers. If they have needs, pray that those needs would be met. If they're not saved, pray that they'd come to know Jesus. If they're saved, pray that their faith would become stronger.

Jesus loves my enemies every bit as much as he loves me, and I'm every bit a sinner doomed to (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) as they are without Jesus. I have people that are my enemies, and I'm sure there are people that view me as their enemy.

I do believe that is one of the hardest things that Jesus told us to do,,, love your enemies. Pray for them that god can help them too,, to possibly reverse the course that is making an enemy. Keep malice out of your heart… sometimes they will always be your enemy no matter how hard you pray,,,,


Stand by your principles, Stand by your guns, and victory complete and permanent is sure at last.

The apostle Paul said we are to pray for our enemies. By doing so, we heap burning coals on their heads. That's not an act of retribution, but more a matter of conviction.
