Praying for Our Enemies

There are several large RV Forums where I "hang out" at.
Great information about RVing and the lifestyle

I was reading a post today from a Christian couple who had a link to their Blog. On their blog they had an entry entitled "Jerk on the Month". Their pick was Rosie O'Donnell

Now I would have to agree with them however...

The Holy Spirit whispered to me in a still small voice, "Pray for your enemies"

Its so easy to despise some people, they make it easy!
Its easy to label them our "enemy"

But the real enemy is Satan...the Word tell us that we..." For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms" Eph. 6:12 (NIV)

Our battle is not with the person but with spiritual forces guiding the person

And we are all sinners,"All have sinned..."

Don't get me wrong, people make choices that influenced their behavior...the Lord gave us all free will..the free will to choose Him and live will according to His perfect will or not to choose Him and be subject to Satan's "suggestions and guidance"

And our enemies influenced behavior does effect us, our society, immorality, abortion, fornication, divorce, sexulization of young children. And political movements and candidates, judicial verdicts effect our everyday lives. We become overtaxed, less secure,appeasements with those who seek our destruction, more government regulation and less personal decision making of our own lives.

And some are truly evil,having choosen it, and I believe our prayers are wasted on them Matthew 7:6, Heb. 10:26 , Matt. 13: 36-38 and needed for their victims

But the facts remain that we are commanded to pray for our enemies, Matthew 5:44

So today I pray for Rosie and Nancy Pelosi and Al Gore and the Clintons
and Sean Penn and George Soros, John Kerry, Cindy Sheehan and any other of those I consider an "enemy" of mine and my country by their actions, that the Holy Spirit brings to my remembrance.

And who knows? The early Christians could hardly believe that someone like
Saul could become Paul..
