Praying through 1 Corinthians 7:8

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your guidance on Christian marriages, the single state and celibacy - both in Paul's letter to the Corinthians and throughout Your word. Thank You for the institution of marriage and the many instructions given to married couples and those that remain unmarried. I pray that in whatever state I find myself, during my time on earth, my life would be a living sacrifice unto God and I would conduct myself as unto the Lord. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.”
(1 Corinthians 7:8)

Heavenly Father, thank You that in Christ I have been set free from the bondage of sin and death, and that in Christ I have been made free indeed.
