“But immorality or any impurity or greed
must not even be named among you,
as is proper among saints;
and there must be no filthiness
and silly talk, or coarse jesting,
which are not fitting,
but rather giving of thanks.”
By paying for my sin debt with the precious life of Jesus, You redeemed me out of a life tainted with sin. I confess that I allow immorality to seep back into my life in the form of greed or silly talk and other things that are not fitting or proper for a child of Yours. Forgive my tendency to walk into the trap of my enemy and follow his worldly ideals.
I long to walk in a manner worthy of being a joint heir with Jesus. My desire is that my mind, and soul, and thoughts, and words, and actions all be in obedience to You and Your will. I want my life to be such that no one will even think I am participating in any type of impurity. Let my ears not even listen to coarse or silly talk. Instead, may my thoughts be of You and Your love - Your love that bought me, and Your love that I need to be sharing.
Father, You alone can lead me in paths of righteousness. Today, I will set my steps to follow You. Today, no matter what the circumstance, I will listen to You and obey You. Restrain me from anything I am tempted to do that is unfitting. I thank You and honor and glorify You for molding me into that which I cannot be without You.
I pray in Jesus’ precious and holy name.
