A Prayer to Love Your Enemies

Prayer to Love Your Enemies

Almighty Father, I thank You earnestly for Your great love and the blessings of family and friends. I pray that we remain a happy, peaceful and united family, in deep love and understanding for one another.

Luke 6:32 “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?”

Loving the ones who have hurt You

I come to You in prayer, asking You to teach me. Guide my heart to love my enemies, even the ones who have hurt and harmed me.

Though my wounds could be deep, help me forgive.


May I remember the many times I have sinned against others and how I seek forgiveness. Because You have always graciously forgiven me.

Matthew 5:44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.”

Remove all Hatred and Bitterness

Lord Jesus, I earnestly pray that I cast out hatred and love those who have been difficult in my life.

I pray to forgive those who have terribly hurt me in the past. May I readily accept their apology and be one who practices Your agape love to everyone.


Praying for those who persecute you

Lord Jesus, the first words You spoke as You laid upon the cross was “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do” (Luke 23:34).

Help me, Lord Jesus I pray, to persevere in the same manner when I am hurt, and pray for those who persecute me. Help me forgive readily.

May I love without expectations, reservations and limitations. I pray, as I call upon Lord Jesus to abide in me and cast out all revenge and contempt against those who have hurt me.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
