Loving Saviour, thank You for first showing love to us while we were still sinners, and granting us forgiveness at the foot of the cross (Romans 5:8). I pray and ask that You search my and my children’s hearts, and reveal to us if there is anyone we hate or bear a grudge against. Help us to focus not on their wrongs, but on Your undeserved grace and forgiveness towards us. And use me to show my children—by example—what loving our enemies looks like, by doing good to and praying for those who have wronged us. May You be glorified in and through it all.
Prayer of the Day
[Jesus said] “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who ill-treat you.”
