Should We Be Praying For Our Enemies To Die In Church? by lelvin(m): 8:48am On Jul 23, 2017
I don't know if it's only me but I have always felt praying for our enemies to die in church is just not the Christian way of doing things.

Don't get it twisted, am in church right now and the prayer coordinator just raised a prayer point, "Father anyone against my progress against my family progress as they step out of their house this morning, may Sanford trailer jam them".
No one is perfect, and we've all got enemies. Imagine there all start praying like that or even worse.

I attended a church sometime last month and one of the prayer points was that, "Any body against my progress, anybody that is out to harm me today, before they come out this morning Father break their legs in Jesus name". In my mind I was like it should be in SARS name not Jesus name because na SARS fit do something like that.

It's not just right please because Christ preached love and not hate.

No we shouldn't...- God say make we pray or our enemies - but that's not what is practiced in Nigerian churches today.... its not the fault of our pastors though. they only tell us what we want to hear.

The only enemy approved by God for u to hate or fight is the devil and demons. any other person u fight or hate as an enemy is against what Jesus preached here on earth therefore it's a sin. So salvation ministries, Mountain of fire etc come to my house and beat me.

The church today has gotten it wrong there.

Most times this is a prayer born out of fear and not Faith.

A Christian that knows whom he or she is don't pray that way. A Christian is like a deplomat with/under diplomatic immunity. He is too defended and knows that no weapon formed against him/her shall prosper.

A Christian lives a praise-ful life.

But because of the hardness of people's heart these days, these sought of prayer has found its way into the church and Satan is feeling....

Let me stop here because evangelism is still a duty till we all come to the unity of Faith.

We are all some ones enemy

Yes in reality, we do have real enemies, people who are envious and jealous and hate to see other people progres.

Their actions is evil, so focus should be praying against people's evil.
Saying percieved enemies to die is wrong.

If you are in a church were it is prayed enemies should die, my friend that is not a church of God.

The bible urges us to pray positively for our enemies.

Matthew 5
43 You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.'
44 But I tell you: Love your enemies and PRAY FOR THOSE WHO PERSECUTE YOU,
45 THAT YOU MAY BE SONS of your FATHER in heaven. He causes his sun to RISE ON THE EVIL AND THE GOOD, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
46 If you LOVE THOSE WHO LOVE YOU, what reward will you get? Are not even the TAX COLLECTORS doing that?
47 And if you GREET ONLY your BROTHERS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING MORE than others? Do not even pagans do that?

Matthew 6

"And when you pray, do not be like the HYPOCRITES, for they LOVE TO PRAY STANDING in the SYNAGOGUES and on the STREET CORNERS to be SEEN BY MEN. I tell you the truth, they have RECEIVED their REWARD IN FULL.
6 But when you pray, GO INTO YOUR ROOM, CLOSE THE DOOR and pray to your Father, WHO IS UNSEEN. Then your Father, who SEES WHAT IS DONE IN SECRET, will reward you.
7 And when you pray, do not KEEP ON BABBLING like PAGANS, for THEY THINK they will be HEARD because of their MANY WORDS.
8 DO NOT BE LIKE THEM, for your Father KNOWS WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE YOU ASK HIM.

Matthew 6:14
For if you FORGIVE MEN when they SIN AGAINST YOU, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

Christ said we should love our enemies. So why would we pray for them to die? Do you know how many people who see you us their own enemy? How would We feel if they prayed for us to die too?
