a prayer for my enemies

a prayer for my enemies
for those who would hurt me
those seeking to harm me,
my loved ones, my life

a prayer that they would change
that God would speak to them
that they would repent
of their evil ways

a prayer of forgiveness
for those who would hurt me
I let go of my hands
around their necks

a prayer for redemption for me
for all of them, together,
that God’s love would reign
in me, in their hearts
