Daily Prayer for April 21st, 2021 

Good morning, God—thank you!! 😊

Jesus was hated. I am hated. Not one person is liked by all people. But, thankfully, Father, because you fill me with your love, I hate no one. I love my enemies, just as your love yours. It’s not easy at times, but I’d rather be more like you and love everyone. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Psalm 69:4-5

More in number than the hairs of my head
are those who hate me without cause;
mighty are those who would destroy me,
those who attack me with lies.
What I did not steal
must I now restore?
O God, you know my folly;
the wrongs I have done are not hidden from you.

John 15:18

Ephesians 4:32

32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Exodus 14:14

14 The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”

Romans 12:19

19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
