Therefore confess your sins to each other

and pray for each other so that you may be healed.

The prayer of a righteous person

is powerful and effective.

 “You have heard that it was said,

‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 

But I say to you, love your enemies,

bless those who curse you,

do good to those who hate you,
