A Prayer to End Sexual Promiscuity and Abortion - October 24th
By: Therese Warrick, Women's Road to Freedom, Inc., Lexington, KY
Most loving and gracious FATHER: I come to you humbly as I know how on behalf of teen girls and teen moms, ladies and women, boys and men who are living in sexual promiscuity. Father, we know that sex and all those sexual desires outside of marriage are only temporary “feel good” fixes because as Your Word says in 1 John 2:17, “For we know that the world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” (NIV) Father, In the name of Jesus, for that teen girl or woman contemplating abortion as her only option; in the name of Jesus, for those parents who are taking their children to abortion clinics; in the name of Jesus, for that woman who aborted for the sake of a man. Lord, please shower down Your mercy on the doctors, nurses and midwives who are performing abortions.
Father, we need YOU like never before. Help us Father to stand for purity and abstinence. Father, give us strength to just say no and to wait on You for that man or that woman that You have prepared for us in holy matrimony. Lord, please chip away the hardening from around our hearts and minds so we can hear and obey the true and loving Counselor that You have left with us. Galatians 5:16-17 admonish, “…walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.” (NIV) Father, You delivered Rahab, the prostitute, David, the adulterer, the Samaritan woman, and so many others. It was not so long ago that You delivered me too, so, I am throwing myself once again at Your feet of mercy. In the name of Jesus, please convict us in our hearts and in our minds and destroy everything that which is keeping us from living in Your holiness. I pray all these in the merciful name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.
