Lord, I want your heart for my enemies, for those who have been the cause of great wounding to my soul. I am whole because of your healing. Now I want to be capable of compassion for those who have hurt me. I don't want to glory in their misfortune, even if their misfortune could actually be your loving discipline. I do not know what your intentions are for them. I do know you are kind and full of grace and perhaps you withhold your full judgment on their deeds in order to show them the same grace you have showed me so many times before. I want to be able to ask and really desire the favor of God to fill their lives. So, Lord, please make it so! Take this wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting!
