I pray that I don’t doubt or underestimate its power to destroy me physically and spiritually. Instead, I ask that you give me the strength to flee from sexual sin and help me not conform to the culture. Please make my desire to follow you greater than my desire to please my flesh and show me how to keep my thoughts pure. Amen.

But you are a better judge than me because you know the reason for my season. I pray that I learn to trust you with all my heart and don’t lean on my own understanding.
