{{This implies there is some reward for loving and praying for our enemies.}}


We can certainly store up treasure in heaven. But in a here and now sense, I find that praying for my enemies helps to keep hate at bay. If I sincerely pray for my enemies and want their wellbeing, then how can I hate them. And hate in my heart is a sin that needs to be excised.
