love and prayer

Today's reading is one I spend a lot of personal time with. Instead of getting caught in the vicious claws of low energy feelings like hate, and anger towards those who hurt or annoy us in some way, we need to learn to love and pray for them.
We have all had a time when someone directs something negative at us and we have the choice to choose kindness or unkindness. You will find remarkable outcomes if you can respond with love and prayers for these people.
In the morning when I have my morning prayers I pray for all those in the world who are suffering. That they might feel Gods love for them. I also pray for all those who are doing evil that they too will feel Gods love through another person so they will hunger after it and have a softening of their hearts to be able to turn away from their evil doing. How else will they ever have a desire to do good if they are not feeling the love of those around them? I would rather pray to keep someone here on earth as a changed individual than pray that they die just because it is easier to get them out of the way.
Choose love and prayer.

Some lovely words in this post. It is so much easier to feel anger and resentment than to pray for love. We should all take a leaf out of your book sometimes.
