Golden Rule

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for being with my family today. Thank you for keeping everything calm all day. Thank you for helping me in knowing what to do now and what to do tomorrow. And thank you for the scripture to use for the prayer for your daughter you love:

[Jesus said:] Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. (Matthew 7:12)

Lord, it’s me. I am here as usual. I’m ready to begin another prayer for another day for Lindsey, your daughter. Lindsey, today our scripture is sometimes referred to as the Golden Rule. It seems that you follow it already, but today I am praying that it become a habit. Lord, Lindsey is following you. She listens for your voice. She reads your Word daily. I ask that you give her an added touch of your joy each time she treats others as she hopes they will treat her. Let her smile each time she is doing something for someone else. Let others see how gracious she is towards others. And I pray that she would continue to be a role model to the many who are watching her attentively. I pray that they would see how Jesus is at the root of her life in public as well in her private life. And Lord, I pray that you would help her to have more private time, more time out of the eye of the public. I pray that you would help her to find rest, to find rest in you Lord. And we will give the glory to you. All the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

NLT:
Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.

NET:
In everything, treat others as you would want them to treat you, for this fulfills the law and the prophets.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
