Prayers for Love of Enemy

Without going into specifics, I'd like to ask for prayer from all of you for an issue regarding someone in my life to whom, in the spirit of Lent (reconciliation and all that), I am going to attempt to reach out to in charity in the next few days. I have no idea how this is going to be received by this person--my gesture may be received with gratitude (albeit a confused gratitude, since all the contact we've had has been rather hostile), or with derision--but regardless, this needs to be done, for my own sake as much (if not more) as the sake of this person, since my thoughts towards this person have been cruel, dark, and hateful lately.

Please pray that I might "offer the olive branch" with a pure heart and repentance and, whatever the outcome on the other person's end, I might at least find peace towards this person in my own heart.
