I was told that Rebbi Meir agrees with his wife that one should pray for an
evildoes to repent. However there is a blessing in our daily prayers
that asks for the cutting off of Hashem's enemies. How do we reconcile
these two sources?

I would enjoy many answers and would appreciate any sources available.

Thank You very much.
