Prayer To Avoid Fornication

P

For many people, helping others and helping yourself is an important and necessary part of life. However, fornication is a serious sin that we should all avoid, and we can do that by praying to avoid fornication. Is there a prayer to avoid fornication?

What Is Fornication?

A common saying along the lines of “God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.” While we agree that no one should have sex before marriage, we don’t think it is good to be that way. Fornication is the act of sex before marriage.  

People think that they can get away with it, but they can’t. It’s not only wrong, but it’s also illegal. We pretend we don’t have a choice in it, and we don’t. But we do. There is a reaction to every action we take, and that reaction can be positive or negative. We can choose to react “for” or “against” our desires and be able to avoid committing sins.

While we may think of fornication as sex between unmarried men and women, it can also refer to sex between unmarried people of the same gender. This is known as the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah. Fornication has been condemned since the time of the Old Testament, and the church has always taught that it is a sin because it disrespects God’s plan for marriage. Fornication means that you are not respecting the creation of God, and you are breaking the commandments of God.

A Prayer Is What We Need

If you are looking for a way to avoid fornication, the best way to do this is by praying to God. There are many ways to pray to God, but if you are looking for a way to avoid fornication, pray to God for divine assistance.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy prayer to avoid fornication, you can pray just like this: “Lord, I want to avoid fornication, and I ask that you help me to get rid of lustful thoughts. In Jesus’s name, amen!”

Increasingly, we are finding out that we become spiritually dead and physically blind when we become sexually involved with others outside our marriage partners. If we remain sexually pure and abstain from fornication, we will find that we can prosper in our relationships and our walk with God and find the blessings and benefits that we so desire.

Conclusion

Prayer is a powerful tool for both staying out of trouble and finding inner peace. But it can be hard to stick with good habits if you don’t consciously make an effort to stick to them. We all make mistakes, but prayer can help you to grow closer to God.
