Oh Lord, I pray that people in the faith will stay on course. That they do not go astray because of the love of fame, fortune, women, drugs, and the pleasures of this world. Surely, there are so many things now in this world that can easily take a person of faith and point them on the path of destruction. This is what frightens me. Nowadays, it is hard to distinguish who is for you or against you while people are at church, but after they leave those walls, their colors do shine forth. Because people then treat you and act much differently, we can see them for who they really are. And what is sad, God, is that these same people who will listen to a sermon in church will not listen to a preacher or evangelist on the streets. That what we have to say is not meaningful, and some of them even ridicule people like me and others who go out and preach the gospel to the lost. Lord, if people were really for Your kingdom, then they would not be scoffing or thinking bad thoughts as they walk past us, but be motivated to also go on the streets and talk to people. They would also want to shine their light for You and no longer allow it to go dormant. So many people in this world could be used by You if they would just let You move in their lives. They would also see that a life of sexual sin is not worth giving up our salvation for, once they are serving You. That it is not worth looking at pornography, having sex before marriage, committing adultery, and becoming a homosexual. These things will destroy people if they do not come to You in full repentance. Surely, people can sway us to do many things that are abominable and very wicked in Your sight. I know this to be true, for I was once wrapped up in a life of sexual sin. Thank God that I cried out to You when I did in prayer, for Your mercy was for me at that moment and now. I had no power to overcome my sins, but You gave me the strength to do so. I love You, Lord. Your mercy does endure forever. Amen.
