Neat blog on how we should pray for those who willingly oppress us and the church at large. I was first turned on to The Naked Bible Blog by someone here, can't recall who, but I thank them!

Jesus taught us to pray for our enemies. Even while on the cross, Jesus asked the Father to forgive those who crucified Him, for they didn’t realize what they had done. Stephen, who was the first martyr asked God to forgive those who stoned him to death.

Pray for those who despise you. Jesus rebuked Peter when he wanted to call down judgment on another person. God will take care of those who come against Israel. He has ordained a time and place for their judgment.
