Heavenly Father, there is so much to learn from the corrective instructions in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians.

Purity Prayer - To Flee Fornication

Dear Lord God, I seek a true inner purity that only comes from You and I come to You, knowing that I stand unclean, impure and wretched before Your perfect throne of purity and truth. Lord I ask Your forgiveness for the way that I have not honoured You with my body – knowing that I have engaged in many impure acts and unchaste thoughts. I confess that I am unworthy to even kneel before Your perfect presence – and yet I now understand that Christ died to pay the price for all my sins and all my impurities. Thank You that by believing in Jesus, Who died to pay the price for all my sins, You have washed me clean from every dishonouring act. Thank You Father.

Help me Lord to flee fornication and all the accompanying evils that flow from illicit sexual relationships and unclean thoughts – knowing that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who dwells in me and lives within my heart. Help me to keep my outward actions and inner thoughts pure before Your eyes – whether I am in the public view or hid in a secret place, and away from the gaze of the world’s eye.

Purify the eyes of my heart and help me to keep the focus of my mind on the Lord Jesus - and develop in me I pray, thoughts, words, deeds and motives that are pure in Your sight and that will honour Your Holy name, in Jesus name I pray,


“If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”
(1 Corinthians 3:17)

Heavenly Father, forgive us for the times we have fallen into the trap of carnality and worldly thinking. I pray that I may keep the eyes of my consciousness upon the Lord Jesus and keep me from allowing the mind-set of the world to infiltrate my heart and affect my witness. I pray that I may develop spiritual wisdom before You and be equipped to forward the good news of the gospel of Christ in a mature manner, that does not engage in unnecessary squabbling or petty differences, but is ready to give an instructive answer for the hope I have in Christ. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN. 

“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.”
(1 Corinthians 3:19)
