Teenage Prayers: Protect My Eyes | Prayer for Pure Thoughts
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I pray for Your direction and guidance in protecting my eyes from seeing things that are not honorable to You or anyone else. I pray to always seek the way out. I pray my feet will run from temptation and my hands will guide me to Your Word.
I pray You will send me accountability partners (those people who are Christian, strong in their faith, of the same gender as me, who can encourage, support, pray, and help guide me in this walk of sexual purity). I pray You will cut those things out of my life that will cause me to stumble. I pray You will point those things out to me and give me courage, strength, patience, and integrity to do what is right in Your eyes.
I pray for wisdom and knowledge so I can protect my thoughts through Your Word, worship, and praise.
Lord, I pray for forgiveness for those times my eyes didn’t honor Your creation. I ask for forgiveness when I have fallen into temptation. Help me to be reminded that I am forgiven and give me patience to continue to work and walk in this journey. Help encourage me when all I feel is failure. Help lift my eyes to You when all I want to do is focus on me.
I cancel those assignments against my future spouse, future children, and future generations. Help me set the foundation for lasting marriages and healthy families. I pray against the powers of darkness that seek to destroy Your will for my life. Help me to see How mighty You are. I pray all these things in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
