In his message, Gary Brown presented several thought-provoking examples. If you missed the service, you can watch the message here.
“This is the supreme command. Through the medium of prayer, we go to our enemy, we stand by his side, and we plead to God for him.”
“Prayer is the forerunner of mercy.”
“We cannot go on hating another man in the presence of God. The surest way of killing bitterness is to pray for the man we are tempted to hate.”
For the benediction, Gary used a portion of a sermon delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. on November 17, 1957 entitled “Love your Enemies.”
