The invitation to pray in dating is not another burden heaped onto the back of single men and women. course we have to pass before God gives us a husband or a wife.
We read articles, text friends, listen to podcasts, even ask for advice, but put off kneeling at the feet of our Father in heaven.
If we want to date well, we will need to pray more.
When every fiber of every muscle in our bodies wants to give into temptation, ignite our hearts to reject sin’s filthy promises and to prefer you and your righteousness. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God?
We compromise in relationships in ways we never would otherwise.
God, blow away the fog of any infatuation, and fill our eyes with your truth and beauty.Whenever we are tempted to cross boundaries you have lovingly set for us, carry our minds to the cross, where Jesus died to liberate us from every ounce of sexual sin.It will be one of the most radical, countercultural, Spirit-enabled feats of our lives: choosing to deny the impulse to experiment or express ourselves sexually in dating because we trust you and treasure Jesus.God, inspire in us a passion for each other’s faith and joy in you.I feel a divine jealousy for you, since I betrothed you to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.(Hebrews –13) Father, guard us from isolating ourselves and our relationship from other believers.
