My Prayer...

Loving God, Almighty Father, forgive me for my selfishness. You have blessed me so richly through Jesus. Please move me by your Spirit to be as generous, loving, forgiving, and kind with others as I want them to be with me. Help me as I seek to use the principles of the Golden Rule in whatever the circumstances are in my relationship with others. I want to be as loving and gracious with others as the Lord Jesus has been to me. In Jesus' name, I ask this. Amen.
