A Prayer for Wednesday, September 7
Forgiveness and love for enemies
God we repent for being so quick to respond with violence in our hearts and our actions. Teach us your ways, O Lord. We pray that we will be more fully conformed to the image of Christ; that we will love our enemies and forgive those who have wronged us. We confess that we often have no idea how to pursue justice in the Way of Jesus. You have showed us a better way – rid us of our propensity for violence, vengeance and retribution and teach us how to pursue justice for the oppressed in ways which honor your kingdom.
