Advent Idea

This Advent, as you prepare yourself for Christ’s Second Coming (did you know that’s what Advent was really for?), strengthen yourself spiritually by praying for your enemies.

For example, instead of merely railing against the plans of President-Elect Obama, pray for him and his administration to have wisdom.  Pray for his (and their) conversion.  Pray for the pro-abortion “Catholics” who are becoming a part of his administration.  
Also, pray for his safety.  No sane person wants any harm to come to the president, no matter how much we disagree with him.
You know what has happened to me while doing this?  I find it very difficult to remain angry at someone I am praying for.  It’s quite the humbling experience.
