Oh Lord, may we, as followers of You in the faith, be more than just believers but warriors for Your cause. Help us to fight for what is right and not be deceived by worldly pleasures from the enemy. My desire is to live for You and I pray that others in the faith will also have the selfsame desire. We can go out in this world and be victorious for You, we just need to trust in You with our whole hearts. Then, can we be changed, and our wicked ways can be turned to doing what You love and not what our flesh desires. Lord, I know that all humility comes from You, so take our pride and destroy it, that we may be used for Your kingdom. Give us clean hands and a pure heart. May our minds be lifted up to godliness. That we may think as you think and be given over to what is righteousness. Holiness is what we need to walk faithfully, and I pray that You will move and shape us in this way. Give us over to purity and being morally clean in Your sight. Cast out any impure thoughts, that our minds may be fully given over to You. If pornography has crept into people's lives, I pray that You will convict them of this abomination, that they may repent and allow You to cleanse them of these sins. Awake these people to be clean in Your sight. If people are in a sexual relationship with someone outside of marriage, convict them also of their sinful nature. I do not wish that they willfully follow temptation and die in their sins. You are our deliverer and I believe that You can change any person that desires to be saved. I love You Lord. I trust in You. I give You everything that You require of me. Amen.

11 These things command and teach.
12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
1 Timothy 4:7,8 (KJV)
7 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
God is able to give us more holiness, godliness and purity in our lives. Seek Him and your faith will be fed by the Holy Spirit.
God uses people in the faith that not only believe in Him, but also love Him with their whole hearts. This means that a person has sought out God, in order to know Him. Continue Reading
