    It is very difficult to pray for those that curse me and for those that despitefully use me. It can be done though Through pray and wanting to be free from the bondage that these things would put on me. I will not allow myself to step down to their level of doing things. I will go up. In a 5 story parking lot to be able to get out of there you have to go all the way up it to get out !!!! So it is with God My Lord is higher than the despisers and cursers. It does take time to get it done but if you have a willing heart you will stay with it till you do . And OH !!! The freedom and release. Blessed !!! Blessed !!!!
