We all have people in our lives we love and people we don’t like or who have harmed us in some way. There are parts of ourselves we love and parts we don’t like and attempt to deny. It’s easy to “pray for” those we love. Most of us don’t even think about praying for parts of ourselves.
I like this quote. Mark Twain was a very wise man. Consider praying for the parts of yourself that are afraid, denied, not given a voice – compassion heals. And, I like the concept of praying for Satan – however you define “praying” and however you define “Satan” in your own life. Who are the people in your life you think are bad or evil? Rather than wishing them ill, consider having compassion for them. Love – the greatest gift of all.
