But I say to you, love your enemies,
and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your heavenly Father,
for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good,
and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.
— Matthew 5:44-45, from today’s readings

Can I pray for those with whom I find myself in tension? Even the simple prayer that they may enjoy the same rain and sun, the same love of God that I do myself?
