Jesus said to his disciples: "To you who hear I say, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you...But rather, love your enemies and do good to them...and you will be children of the Most High, for he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked." (Luke 6)
Almighty, everlasting God, through Your only Son, our blessed Lord, You commanded us to love our enemies, to do good to those who hate us, and to pray for those who persecute us. Therefore, we earnestly implore You that by Your gracious working our enemies may be led to true repentance, may have the same love toward us as we have toward them, and my be of one accord and of one mind and heart with us and with your whole Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
