Praying for Nero

by Jim Rapp
(1Timothy 2:1,2)

That we may live quiet and peaceful lives.
To that end, we are admonished to pray
for those whose actions drive
us to distraction; those whose ways, 

we fear, will sweep away the good
that good men labored long
to fashion; truths that stood
 against the “lying throng”. 

That our lives may be pacific;
that our hearts may be at peace;
we pray a prayer specific
for the “enemies” that we perceive, 

and in praying thus, we still
our troubled hearts – and a
faith-full heart thus stilled, will
perceive it’s “enemy” another way.
