Goooooooood Morninnnnnng :)
God revealed something POWERFUL to me, lets take a look at this one portion of SCRIPTURE;
and I know of very few people who at first reading it would shout out wooohoo, YEAH, lets pray for our enemies, ...LOL!
44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Why do you think there is such resistance to this?....God reminded me that HIS thumbprint is upon living soul (no matter how much it is surpressed) our human nature will resist this suggestion BECAUSE "Prayer" is that powerful. If prayer wasn't that powerful than why resist praying for an enemy or wishing good upon them?....This should really make you think. You see, deep down inside one might be inclined to think, I'm not wasting good prayers on someone who hurt me or mistreated me; to heck with them! The injured soul wants to punish them. God says, " Vengeance is mine, I do the punishing", If you hold onto the hurt & anger; it is you who shall suffer. Think of prayer like a boomerang aimed at the unpenitent soul. It truly is the only way you can get back at them, God says, "Trust me..and I shall take care of it." Pray for them and GOD shall hold them accountable!
Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. ROM 12:19
I tell you now, if you want a blessing, you better start praying for your enemies. Need a thing, anything...let's use an orange for example, pray one given to THEM and when you hear that it has indeed shown up, GUESS what?! This means your blessings ARE IN ROUTE to you! How do I know this? I have tried it. Not only that, this is the only way you gain release & freedom from the anguish of that hurt that was delivered to you. Not every blessing an enemy gets will be received, enjoyed or appreciated, that is between them and God. Many evil people curse their blessings for lack of wisdom. When we pray for our enemies; their transgression becomes totally a matter on their own behalf. We are then absolved and released. God will begin to work in their heart, in their life, to either convict them or the encourage them to make amends.
I can only add to this by emphasizing, PRAY, Pray without ceasing. I have learned to pray over everything, in that I give a little forethought to all I do. Why?...becuase it's suggested by God and I have found it to be the most effective way to be at peace with whatever happens. I know in my spirit that GOD hears me, he confirms it & has come closer to me so boldly, BECAUSE I have applied my self to His word, to His help and guidance. I know when a prayer has been answered because I faithfully put it forward, Yes, I PRAY IT FORWARD!
Trust me when I tell you, if you pray for your enemies they will be delivered to a spot where they must account for their actions. God can not be escaped, one day they will either Pay or Pray themselves. God sends us all lessons to help correct our errors and one day they just might become the secret prayer warrior, praying over your welfare, because their heart has been convicted!
This world is in dire need of prayer! God needs to hear from us on these matters! I have begun a CAMPAIGN to INVITE everyone and I MEAN EVERYONE to pray for the entire world; the sick, the dying, the hungry, the hurt, the weak , the poor and so much more. PLEASE consider for a moment the implications of prayer, we owe it to God, to ourselves, our family, this entire woe struck world to begin praying with real purpose. I invite you to join us and feel free to invite all whom you know!

Heavenly Father, I ask a Special Blessing upon the hearts & souls of those I have invited to this very special prayer time in Honor of You, Lord and the Mercy you have bestowed upon this terribly sin struck world. I ask that you send an unmistakable PEACE for each of my Brothers and Sisters, as they stop to remember their blessings & to ask pardon for those whom have come against them; for all the people, the victims of violence and/or natural tragedy, both young & old... all the sick, the hurt, dying & hungry! As we rush to get where we are going, let us not forget to be thankful for our troubles...(getting short changed at the store?...be thankful you have money to buy things)...stuck in traffic?...be thankful you have a car. Husband or wife arguing with you?...be thankful God has blessed you with a life mate. Children making noise?... some folks would give anything to have those troubles! In all of this, it is my hope that each of you will have a magnificent day with renewed blessings; abundantly overflowing! No one wants to be reminded of the terrible condition that this world is in BUT if we turn a blind eye, one day we might be in just such a predicament ourselves. We are all connected & one day, God will reveal all of this to each of us, even beyond the scope of what we already may perceive! I love each of you and I thank you for joining me in spirit and in prayer! May God continually watch over us all! AMEN
