Prayers

Prayer for Our Enemies

Most loving Father, who by thy Son Jesus Christ hast taught us to love our enemies and to pray for them, we beseech thee, give to those who are now our enemies the light of thy Holy Spirit. Grant that they and we, being enlightened in conscience and cleansed from every sin, may know and do thy will, and so be changed from foes to friends united in thy service; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
