Daily Prayer for Oct 13th, 2019         

Good Sunday morning, God—thank You!! 🙂

Holy Spirit, help me to keep the royal law by loving my neighbor as myself; so that I do right by You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

James 2:8 New International Version (NIV)

If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right.

Matthew 22:36-40 New International Version (NIV)

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Leviticus 19:15-18 New International Version (NIV)

15 “‘Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.

16 “‘Do not go about spreading slander among your people.

“‘Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor’s life. I am the Lord.

17 “‘Do not hate a fellow Israelite in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt.

18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.
