40 DAYS OF PRAYER FOR OUR NATION – DAY 24 10/17/2020

REPENT FOR AND RENOUNCE ALL SEXUAL PERVERSION IN OURSELVES AND IN OUR LAND:

SCRIPTURES: Ephesians 5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

Leviticus 18:22-23 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

Romans 1:26-27 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

THOUGHT: Sexual perversion includes any and all sexual activity outside of a God-ordained marriage union (Adultery, Fornication, Prostitution, Sex-trafficking, Same-sex, Rape, Incest, etc.).

The overwhelming testimony of the Word of God is that sexual perversion in any form is reprehensible to God.

Furthermore, it is clear historically that when such practices are broadly accepted and practiced in a city or nation there are consequences.

To illustrate: Someone may ‘feel like’ smoking cigarettes however governments and non-governmental organizations around the world are warning people of the current danger and future consequences of their actions. The Bible has given us severe warnings of the current and eternal consequences of sexual perversion. Just because we feel like doing something does not justify the practice. We are governed by and subject to the laws of our Creator.

PRAYER: LORD, we pray for victims of sexual perversion. They are the innocent, unsuspecting, trusting ones, who have been violated. LORD, as they seek You, heal their hearts and wounds as only You can. Renew to them what was taken by the predator. Give them Your peace, joy and love. In Jesus’ Name.

LORD we repent, asking your mercy, and forgiveness, for any and all participation we have had in sexual perversions of any kind. We renounce all such activity that we have participated in.

LORD, give us another measure of Your love and compassion to care about those so engaged, to warn them and to help them to recover, to repent and to renounce the past way of life. In Jesus’ Name.

Turn us around LORD, that we as a nation turn back to the source from which we came. Let it be a Sovereign work of Your own hand to turn this nation around. In Jesus’ Name.  AMEN!

ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES: 1 Corinthians 6:15-19 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
