Today I pray,
I pray for all guys and girls of my generation who have chosen the path of sexual purity,
See we have all heard the words "true love waits" a gazillion times,
We have heard all the sermons, counsels and teachings that tell us we can walk the walk,
We know the benefits of keeping ourselves, just as we are aware of the consequences of not,
We have been encouraged by Pastors, parents, mentors etc.
But no one really talks about how difficult it is.
It is easy to say no to someone you don't like, but how do you say no to someone you really like,
How do you say no to the one guy that really treats you right,
How do you say no to the one person that truly gets you,
How do you say no to the one person that genuinely cares,
How do you say no the one who does and says all the right things,
How do you say no the one who is a Christian just like me and shares the same values and morals, except for that one,
How do you say no to that guy who has all the qualities the relationship counselors tell us any guy serious about us should have,
You see no one really talks about these challenges,
But I know a personality that is always available to help us,
And so I pray that God will give everyone of us who have chosen this path His Holy spirit,
I pray that through Him we will find grace for help in moments when we are tempted,
I pray that through Him we will find the strength to continue the journey even when it seems we are the only ones on this tedious road,
I pray that through Him we will always remember that there are still seventy thousand in Israel who have not bowed to baal nor kisssed him,
I pray that through him we will find friends among these seventy thousand,
I pray that through Him we will find courage and grace to say no no matter how good the guy/girl is,
I pray that through Him we will finish this race and come out conquerors,
I pray that through Him, the world will testify that it pays to wait.
These and much more I pray in the All powerful name of Jesus christ.
