sometimes it can seem nearly impossible to pray for evil people.
Our enemies are countless,
and it is right to pray against their evil works.
It is right to pray that their plots be destroyed.
It is right to pray that their abilities and resources are removed.
But the truth sometimes compels us to pray FOR them as well as against them.
BUT HOW can a Christian pray for you to help evil?
They torment us, they lie, they cheat, they pervert, they destroy.
Like pigs they trample and try to ruin everything.
Help us to know how to pray for them,
and know that to "forgive" them is to know that they are "for" (the need of giving them to you) "give" (the act of giving them to you) so you can deal with them on behalf of your people.
We do not accept their evil,
and we want you to continue to destroy wicked works.
But by the compassion of God,
We pray that you might intervene in their lives by showing them the truth,
and that you might bless them with the gift of allowing them to repent of their sins before it is too late.
