Pray for the Man

 Dzhokhar Tsarnaev needs Christ and he needs prayer. I don't know what kind of upbringing he and his brother had but something went horribly wrong as they grew older.  Now as a result of their poor choices a total of five people are dead. Number five is Dzhokhar's older brother.  If I lost a family member in the bombing could I really follow Christ example and love these two men? Could I truly forgive him? In human terms I could not be with God's help I could. Our wall picture of Dirk Willems rescuing his enemy from the freezing pond keeps running through my mind. Love your enemy. Bless those who curse you.
Only God can give us the ability to do that. Pray for Dzhokhar.
