If the Bible tells us to love our enemy, and Satan is our greatest enemy, does that not mean we should forgive Satan the most? I've been mulling this over for a week now and I'm not sure if it is right or not...
God bless. =}

Not a Christian, but every Christian response I've heard to this question is that Satan will never repent. Other than that, I suppose it couldn't hurt.
Sucking at something is the first step to becoming sort of good at something.

No, we don't pray for Satan. He is unredeemable.

I've done it. Even if something is pointless there is no harm in trying.

There is something very unappealing to me about a religion that holds that there is even one sentient being beyond salvation.

It prays that the clover of luck be always in your mind.

No we should not. The lord says what is in hell cannot get out of it. No point. Waste of prayer.

no because Satan is having his own fun down there.
God created the universe and let it evolve.
There! Let's stop arguing and be friends.

I'm pretty sure the Bible says Satan goes to Hell AFTER Revelation.

I used to think that this absolutely WASN'T the case, but then I thought some more about it. Most people who repent of a thing, do so because there is some kind of impetus that compels or motivates them. Satan doesn't have anything like that. He doesn't give a fig about the love of God - he already knew about it and experienced it full-well, and it clearly wasn't his thing. Is it entirely impossible for Satan to be redeemed? I'm not so sure, but he doesn't seem to have any reason to redeem himself. Since Satan seems to be a rebel to the last, I doubt the threat of eternal torment or oblivion would faze him in the slightest. If Satan sought redemption, it would be on an arbitrary whim, which doesn't fit with the idea of legitimately wanting to change and be saved.

The lord says what is in hell cannot get out of it.

I believe it did, once.
There must be hope.
