Prayer and the Golden Rule

7 1aAsk, and bit will be given to you; 2seek, and you will find; 3knock, and it will be opened to you.

8 “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

9 “Or what man is there among you 1who, when his son asks for a loaf, 2will give him a stone?

10 “Or 1if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he?

11 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, ahow much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!

12 “In everything, atherefore, 1treat people the same way you want 2them to treat you, for bthis is the Law and the Prophets.
