Rating: 3.1

well-being
it makes me feel
virtuous and

Oh! How I can pray for my enemies!

Very readable, and thought-provoking too. Do we often pray for our enemies I mean?

I believe that God expects our prayers to be completely unselfish.I think he must be very pleased with yours. What a beautiful attitude you have, dear lady, and what a lovely poem you have written. Thank you. Richard
