Sexual purity

Bible references
– 1 Corinthians 6:18
“Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.”

– 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God.”

– Ephesians 5:3
“But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints.”

– 1 Corinthians 7:2
“But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.”

Father,

You are the creator of all things, including the gift of human sexuality. I come before You with a humble heart, seeking Your guidance and strength to maintain sexual purity in my life. I acknowledge that I am weak and easily tempted by the desires of the flesh, and I ask for Your help in overcoming these temptations and living a life that is pleasing to You.

I pray that You would give me the wisdom to avoid situations and influences that would lead me away from purity. Help me to guard my heart and mind against impure thoughts and actions, and to focus on honoring You with my body. I also ask for Your forgiveness for any past mistakes or impure choices, and for the strength to make better decisions in the future.

Father, I know that I cannot overcome sexual temptation on my own, but with Your power and grace, all things are possible. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and renew my mind so that I may walk in purity and holiness. I trust in Your love and mercy, and I thank You for hearing my prayer.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
