A Collect to Bless our Enemies

Lord Jesus, who forgave even those who condemned you to die, teach us to bless our enemies and those who hate us, that your creation would be filled with love and all would know the love of the Father who desired us into being and desires still that we know what it is to enjoy good in this life and in eternity, through you who reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit in glory, one God, now and forever. Amen. ‘Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.’ – Rom. 12:14
