Today’s Prayer (08/10/2020)

Oh Lord, I pray that more people will desire to keep their integrity with You, just like Job did. Sexual sin is tearing families apart, while also making singles not feel like they need to get married. Surely, fornication, adultery, pornography, and homosexuality is tearing down the importance of marriage. Surely, lust has filled the atmosphere in our day and many people in the faith have allowed it to seep deep into their lives also. This is very sad, for I know the guilt and shame that comes along with it. I’ve hated the times that I have willfully fallen into sin, for my conscience was seared. Even my desire to do good was tainted, where my desire to look to You in faith is now far gone. Wow! The devil really knows how to push our buttons and is having much success. I wish I could say that I have not allowed these types of sin in my life, but I would be lying. You know everything I do in life God, and I know that I am not a Saint. You have heard my cries each time I have fallen, and I am so happy that You have taken me back. It may have taken some time to get Your presence back in my life again, but it was never Your desire for us to leave Your side anyways. It was us as sinners that grieved the Holy Spirit and therefore, we have distanced ourselves from You, oh God. And to those many times I have fallen, I am sorry. I know that I have done wrong things and pray for Your forgiveness. I do not wish to have Satan come over my life again. Instead, build me up in Your mighty power and keep me far from the clutches of the enemy. I wish to come into Your presence and become holy as You are holy. Cause me to fear You and to not desire to do things that I know will haunt me later on. I love You, Jesus. Thank You for Your mercy and grace. I give You praise. Amen.
