Prayer for Romans 12:20

“But If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him something to drink. For in so doing you will be heaping fiery coals on his head.”

Praying through Romans 12:20

Heavenly Father, there are times when I have been hurt and abused by my enemies, who have sought to harm me and those I love. I confess, Lord, that at times I would like to pay them back for the wrongs they have done. But Lord, I know I have been called to do good to those that treat me badly, to pray for my enemies, and to feed them when they are hungry, for Your greater glory. I also know that You have promised to avenge those that hate me, and I thank You that a day is coming when You will put all wrongs to right. Keep me I pray,  from trying to avenge any wrongs done to me, when Your Word clearly says, "vengeance is Mine, says the Lord - I will repay." Draw me closer to Yourself I pray, and may the words of my mouth and the actions I do, bring honour to Your holy name and blessings to those with whom I come in contact. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
