Weapon

Praying for your enemy is the ultimate weapon,

Because it is a weapon that only heals.

What enemy can exist if one prays for the other?

If one loves their enemy, they cease to be an enemy

At least in the eye of the lover.

They may hate. Persecute. Despise. Hurt. Kill.

They may do what they will, but that is not up to us.

What is for us is to love, and to pray,

For in taking to God the lives of our enemies in prayer,

God sheds love on them

and in the fullness of time

Just maybe

Love will reign supreme.

 

“Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Matthew 5:44
