Love and Pray for Your Enemy

As human beings, when someone hurts us, our natural tendency is reciprocate or to resent them for what they have done to us. Jesus, however, calls us to love and pray for your enemy and persecutors (see Matthew 5:43-48).

Do you pray for your enemies? Today, let’s pray for our enemies and those who hate us. Let’s ask Christ to give us the grace to do so. However, if you are not ready to do that, let me know and I will pray for you.

May God’s peace be with you today and always.

Beatitude #1 – Blessed are the poor in spirit

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Mathew 5:3)

Let’s pray for our heart to yearn the divine; to detach itself from the false security worldly goods provide.

Let’s pray for the poor; may God provide them consolation and inspire us to have compassion for them; may we learn from the poor’s faith and resolve.
