Weekly Prayers

親愛的匯點人:

如何為我們深表反對或嚴重分歧甚至怨恨的人禱告? 這個人可能是我們家庭的成員,我們教會的弟兄姊妹,鄰居,政府官員,紀律部隊成員或國家領導人? 歸根到底,如何為我們一早已在我們心中譴責或判斷為錯誤的人禱告?

坦白說,我發覺為那些與我們在意見上分歧的人禱告實在是不易的。 然而,我們的主挑戰我們「要愛你們的仇敵,為那逼迫你們的禱告, 這樣就可以做你們天父的兒子」 (馬太福音5:44-45)。 讓我們敞開心扉, 在愛中彼此接納。 讓我們一起遵從這屬靈的教導,祈求我們每天都能活像基督, 活出基督的樣式。阿門!

Dear Crosspointers:

How to pray for someone of whom we deeply disapprove or disagree or even resent?   This person may be a member of our family, a member of our church, a neighbor, a government official or a world leader?The underlying question is: how to pray for someone we have already condemned or judged in our minds as being wrong?

Quite frankly, I find it extremely difficult to pray for those whom I disagree vigorously.   However, our Lord challenges us to “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5: 44-45).   Let’s open our hearts and minds in love and acceptance. Let’s all join the quest, and pray to be like Christ Jesus. Amen!
