Loving one's enemies

Not only must we love our enemies, but we must also pray for them:  it is a great thing in the sight of God to pray for those who hurt our feelings and injure us.  For this the Lord will grant us grace, and by the Holy Spirit we shall come to know the Lord. Then we shall bear every affliction with joy for His sake and the Lord will give us love for the whole world.  We shall ardently desire the good of all men, and pray for all as for our own souls.
