PRAY LESSON 22
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.”
– 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Adoration: God, I praise You because You are not a God of confusion. Your Word and Spirit clearly reveal Your unchanging character, standards and truth.
Confession: Father, please forgive me for accepting or affirming sin in my life or the lives of other believers. Help me to mourn my sin wherever it is found. (1 Corinthians 5:1-8)
Thanksgiving: Thank You “Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29). Thank You, Lord Jesus, for sacrificing Your righteous life to deliver me from the power of sin.
Global: Father, I pray You will reveal where Your Church is following cultural norms and expose where we have become complacent about sin inside our own fellowships. Please use BSF to come alongside the Church to produce passionate commitment to Christ and His Word.
Local: O Holy God, I pray for the people in my BSF class who are struggling with celibacy, marriage or divorce. Please use the words of 1 Corinthians 7 to address their confusion and disappointment. Offer them comfort and peace in the midst of their trial.
Personal: Gracious Father, Your Word says to “flee from sexual immorality” (1 Corinthians 6:18). Help me to take this truth to heart in the sexual temptations I battle. Keep me mindful of the Holy Spirit indwelling me from which nothing is hidden.
