Pray for Others

I see all people through the eyes of God.

I am easily moved to pray for those I hold dear, especially when one is hurting in some way. "I will pray for you" rolls naturally off my tongue. As I pray, I connect with that individual in Spirit and in love.

It may not come as easily to me to open my heart and pray for those who have treated me or someone else harshly. But I know that every soul deserves the upliftment of prayer. All of us carry a spark of the Christ Light. It is there for me to see if I see as God sees.

When I release any unforgiving thoughts or hostility, I allow God's grace and wisdom to pour through me. As I focus on the goodness in all people, I feel deep compassion. In prayer, I help create a space where all are healed, including me.

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.--Matthew 5:44
