3o Days of Prayer - Day 26
The Temple of the Living God
2 Corinthians 6:14-18 - Don't team up with those who are unbelievers . How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? And what union can there be between God's temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God . As God said;
I will live in them
and walk among them.
I will be there God,
and they will be my people.
Therefore, come out from among unbelievers,
and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord.
Don't touch their filthy things,
and I will welcome you.
And I will be your Father,
and you will be my sons and daughters,
says, the Lord Almighty.
The above scripture is Paul urging believers not to go into "partnership" or "team up" with an unbeliever, because it can cause him or her to stumble. This does not mean you divorce your unbelieving spouse or have nothing to do with an unbeliever!! Each of us are called to bear witness. (Those who know Christ) What this does mean : it is not advisable to enter a marriage with an unbeliever or a business partnership. Why???? Because it may cause you to compromise your faith.
Marriage is two becoming one. It is hard to have unity if you both are not on the same page. Also bringing a child into the relationship may cause more unseen issues. It is better to be equally yoked, so when issues come up as they will ; you will at least be more willing to work things out. Many people discount this problem and soon regret it later. Don't allow attraction, blind passion, and rushing feelings blind you from someone who will not be your spiritual life partner.
Lord Jesus, I pray for your people to repent and return back to You and Your ways. We are drowning in a pool of sin. Each of us accepting accountability for our wrong doing. Father have mercy on our souls as we return back to You. Father, please give us eyes to see all that is good and righteous. Please give us ears to hear Your voice so clearly . Fill us with Your Holy Spirit, O' God. Let each of us ask for Your wisdom, will, and discernment. Lead us away from temptation and fill our hearts with love, forgiveness, truth and peace that surpasses all understanding.
Lord God, please remove all sickness, mental illness, discouragement, persecution, abuse, oppression, fear, sadness, and anxiety from your people. I pray each of us know who we are in You Christ Jesus. That each one believe what You say about them, and not those who speak hurtful and painful things. I pray You restore hope in every believer and restore their finances and health. Please keep our children safe. Thank You Lord Jesus!!! May everyone reading this receive Your peace and protection today. In Your precious name, Jesus. Amen!!
