Daily Scripture Prayers of Renewal: Part 19

May I flee from sexual immorality.  All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but the immoral person sins against his own body.  (1 Corinthians 6:18)

May I not set my heart on evil things, or be an idolater, or commit sexual immorality.  (1 Corinthians 10:6-8)

Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy; love does not boast, it is not arrogant, it does not behave rudely; it does not seek its own, it is not provoked, it keeps no record of wrongs; it does not rejoice in unrighteousness but rejoices with the truth; it bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails.  (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

May I be on my guard, stand firm in the faith, act with courage, and be strong.  (1 Corinthians 16:13)

Since God has made me adequate as a minister of the new covenant, as I have received mercy, may I not lose heart.  (2 Corinthians 3:6, 4:1)

May I not receive God’s grace in vain.  For He says, "In the acceptable time I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you."  Now is the time of God’s favor; now is the day of salvation.  (2 Corinthians 6:1-2)

Since I have God’s promises, may I cleanse myself from all pollution of body and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.  (2 Corinthians 7:1)

May I abound in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, in love, and in the grace of giving.  (2 Corinthians 8:7)

Though I walk in the flesh, I do not war according to the flesh.  The weapons of my warfare are not fleshly, but divinely powerful to overthrow strongholds, casting down arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.  (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)

I do not dare to classify or compare myself with other people, for it is unwise to measure or compare myself with others.  May I not boast beyond proper limits but within the sphere of the gospel of Christ.  "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."  For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.  (2 Corinthians 10:12-14, 17-18)
