The Golden Rule and Black Lives Matter Prayer –
Matthew 7: 12 “In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets. 
Prayer: Lord, create in me the willingness to treat others with fairness, kindness and respect. Make me strong, self-confident and self-assured, but grant me humility and inner peace. Help me this day to treat others the way I would like to be treated. I ask for no special favor. Treat me on the merit of my performance. But, show others how to respect me – not because of the color of my skin, the nappy threads of hair on my scalp, but because of my value and worth. Through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior I pray.
