The following is from the writings of St. Silouan, published in Elder Sophrony’s St. Silouan the Athonite.
The grace of God is not in the man who does not love his enemies.
O merciful Lord, by Thy Holy Spirit teach us to love our enemies, and to pray for them with tears.
O Lord, send down Thy Holy Spirit on earth that all nations may know Thee, and learn Thy love.
O Lord, as Thou Thyself didst pray for Thine enemies, so teach us, too, by Thy Holy Spirit, to love our enemies.
O Lord, all peoples are the work of Thy hands- turn them from enmity and malice to repentance, that all may know Thy love.
O Lord, Thou didst command us to love our enemies, but it is hard for us sinners, if Thy grace be not with us.
O Lord, pour down Thy grace on the earth. Let all the nations of the earth come to know Thy love; to know that Thou lovest us with a mother’s love, and more than a mother’s love for a mother may be forgetful of her children, but Thou forgettest never, because Thy love for Thy creation is boundless, and love cannot forget.
O merciful Lord, by the riches of Thy mercy save all peoples.
