“After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had before.” – Job 42:10.
It is not hard to make enemies. But remember, it is always possible to turn an enemy into a friend – although this isn’t easy, as forgiveness requires true greatness.
Only those who have undergone meaningful spiritual growth can transform enmity into friendship. One sure and practical way to turn enemies into friends is to pray for them. This may sound absurd but it is a truly wise act if you desire a pleasant life. Prayer changes your attitude toward people and events, and when this happens, the battle is just about won. With God on your side you will have the ultimate victory.
Dear Lord, help me to grow in you so that I may develop a forgiving spirit. You have forgiven me through your grace. Help me to follow your example. Amen
