Jonah 4:2 He prayed to the LORD and said, “O LORD! Is not this what I said while I was still in my own country? That is why I fled to Tarshish at the beginning; for I knew that you are a gracious God and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and ready to relent from punishing.
Do you pray for your enemies? Nineveh merited being removed from the face of the earth. If Jonah had prayed for Nineveh, the enemy of his nation, it might have been for swift punishment for their sins against God. But, instead of being plowed under, or overthrown, Nineveh experienced moral conversion.
What might happen if our enemies suffered similarly, suddenly seeing the error of their ways and the goodness of God?
What opportunities for working together might we recognize when we pray for our enemies success?
