Prayer for the Enemy

May our enemy become our friend, O God,

that we may share earth’s goodness.

May our enemy become our friend, O God,

that our children may meet and marry.

May our enemy become our friend, O God,

that we may remember our shared birth in you.

May we grow in grace

may we grow in gratitude

may we grow in wisdom

that our enemy may become our friend.

J. Philip Newell, Praying With the Earth (William B. Eerdman’s Publishing: 2011)  p36.
