The Power of Praying for Your Enemies

For the past 21 days, we have been participating in the “Pray for your Enemies” led by Angela K. Chambers, the founder and CEO of The Greenwood Beat – WFPG. This challenge has truly been a transformative experience, the power of praying for those who have hurt you is rewarding.

 

Throughout the challenge, we have been encouraged to pray for various aspects of our enemies’ lives. We have prayed for their joy, their soul, their success, their family, and even their businesses. These prayers have been filled with genuine love and compassion, and we have seen the goodness of God move in our own lives as a result.

Many participants have shared their testimonies, expressing how unresolved issues have been resolved through this challenge. One person who accepted the challenge shared, “I appreciated the reminder. The more I prayed, the less I desired revenge.” This statement resonated with me deeply, as I too experienced a shift in my perspective towards my enemies.

Praying for compassion for my enemies gave me a different perspective on the issues and challenges they face. It allowed me to see beyond their hurtful actions and understand that they too are human beings with their own struggles. This challenge has truly opened my eyes and given me a greater awareness of the complexities of human relationships.

One participant shared, “I have NEVER prayed for anyone that did not like me. This was a great experience and challenge. It has helped me with my journey with God and being obedient.” This sentiment is echoed by many others who have taken part in the challenge. Praying for our enemies is not an easy task, but it is a powerful act of obedience that can lead to profound personal growth.

Throughout the 21 days, each daily topic or focus has allowed me to reflect on specific situations and areas where I can pray for my enemies. It has given me a framework to approach my prayers with intentionality and purpose. I am incredibly grateful to have found this challenge and the support of Angela K. Chambers LLC.

If you are interested in joining the challenge or learning more about Angela and her work, I encourage you to connect with her on Facebook and check out The Greenwood Beat – WFPG’s YouTube channel for inspiration. You can also reach out to Angela directly for prayers at prayers@thegreenwoodbeat.com or angela@thegreenwoodbeat.com.

Take the Challenge: Pray for your Enemies for 21 Days

Take the Challenge: Pray for your Enemies for 21 Days

Take the Challenge: Pray for your Enemies for 21 Days that The Greenwood Beat – WFPG founder has started. Research indicates doing something twenty-one times will become a habit. Thus, Angela K. Chambers has shared this challenge on her social media platform, Angela K. Chambers.

Angela says, “As I seek God more, my heart posture changes and my greatest desire is to be obedient and follow his commandments. Matthew 5:43-45 states: You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. ‘ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. I want to know that I am a child of my Father in heaven.”

I was going to schedule the post God gave me, but that wasn’t what he told me to do. So, each morning, I pray and then share what God gives me to share. God reminded me that this is daily mana for me. I choose to be obedient. The blessings revealed for my obedience cannot be measured. 

The Soul of our enemies was the first prayer area for our enemies on Day 1. To date, we have prayed: Day 2 – Health, Day 3 – Mental State, Day 4 – Relationships, Day 5 – Finances, and Day 6 – Family.  

“It is not too late to join us on this journey. I would be delighted to have anyone agree with God’s Word as much as possible, says Angela.” Connect with me on Facebook for daily prayer areas. 

Obedience is better than sacrifice.

The Greenwood Beat – WFPG first black, female-owned radio station in Oklahoma! History-making with Angela K Chambers & Francetta Lajuana Mays Located in the heart of Tulsa, Historic Greenwood District, AKA The Original Black Wall Street. Tulsa, Oklahoma, that is!
