Powerful Prayer Thursday – Matthew 5:43-48

I encourage you to pray for people who have done you wrong today. As you do the hate and anger will wash away under the God-kind of love, Agape. Here’s what Jesus says in Matthew 5:43-48.

43 “You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. 44 But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 45 In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. 46 If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. 47 If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. 48 But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.

Jesus was our perfect example on the cross. Follow his example and “be perfect” as Jesus boldly proclaims.
