Please pray with me. God of the impossible, today we pray for our enemies. Just as the resurrection seemed too good to be true to the Apostles and sounds so far fetched today, we pray for what seems impossible – a change of heart to those bent on destruction and death in the name of God. We especially pray for ISIS, for the Taliban, and others who hold extreme beliefs about Islam. We pray for members of the KKK, the Aryan Nation members, and other who hold extreme beliefs about Christianity. We pray for other religious extremist groups of all religions. We pray that they may know peace, they may experience grace and forgiveness. And that in experiencing these blessings, they may turn from their ways and bless others. We pray that we can be instruments of peace and grace and forgiveness to all – especially our enemies and those who are bent on killing us. We pray for what seems like the impossible. Amen.
