It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; – 1 Thessalonians 4:3 NIV

LORD, I surrender my life to You. Teach me how to walk according to Your ways, to avoid anything that might defile my body which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. I pray that my thoughts, speech, and action give You glory. I know that I am responsible for my words and my actions Lord, that it gives a ripple effect to anyone who hears anything I say, who sees what I do. For some people, I am their only Bible because they don’t study nor read Your scriptures.  Protect me dear Lord from the schemes of the evil one. I long to walk with You, to follow You and to please You all the days of my life. May Your will be done and not mine. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. -Psalm 19:14

Heavenly Father, I praise You for You are the GOD of all hope. I renounce any hopelessness, discouragement and all fear in Jesus’ Name. I pray You would fill me with hope. HOPE for every situation.

Help me change my attitudes and speech that are corrupted with any negative fears, judgmentalism, or hidden bitterness toward You or others.

Enable me to keep praising You in every way and every day. Enable me to speak only that which edifies. To lift people with my words and exalt You with my praise.  Help me to only pray against the evils that I see, and not to ‘say’ or speak about it to others.

Thank You, LORD. I believe You to make me an overcomer of all wrong thinking and speech. For all this I pray in the great and precious Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
