Prayer and your enemies

I love the Desert Fathers, their sayings are so 'biblical' and come from people who have soaked themselves in the scriptures. Here is one from one called Abba Zeno:

Abba Zeno said, 'If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks.'
