Q. Thank you for the lesson on “Praying for our enemies“, but I have a question: How do you pray for your enemies when you are at war with them? I am speaking specifically of Islamists. I know we should pray that they see the peace of God and come to His grace, but I fear that we will be at war, literally, with them, especially here in the U.S., in the foreseeable future.
A. You’ve answered your own question. You pray that they see the peace of God and come to His grace. Whether they are at war with you or not is irrelevant. 1 Tim. 2:1-4 tells us God wants all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. That includes the followers of Islam.
