Matthew 5:43-48 (TPT) …respond to the very ones who persecute you by praying for them…
Beloved, prayer releases people and situations into My very capable hands. Refuse to be impressed by the hurtful words and actions the enemy would distract you with, and instead see with My eyes and perceive what is at the root.
Pray healing and restoration over those who would do you harm. That in no way gives approval to their wrongs, it simply shifts the spiritual atmosphere and makes room for Me to move. Be intentional to invite Me into every moment and trust Me to move.
Matthew 5:43-48 (TPT) “Your ancestors have also been taught ‘Love your neighbors and hate the one who hates you.’ However, I say to you, love your enemy, bless the one who curses you, do something wonderful for the one who hates you, and respond to the very ones who persecute you by praying for them. For that will reveal your identity as children of your heavenly Father. He is kind to all by bringing the sunrise to warm and rainfall to refresh whether a person does what is good or evil. What reward do you deserve if you only love the loveable? Don’t even the tax collectors do that? How are you any different from others if you limit your kindness only to your friends? Don’t even the ungodly do that? Since you are children of a perfect Father in heaven, you are to be perfect like him.”
