Lord, we come to You as humbly as we know how, asking for forgiveness for our sins and giving You thanks and praise for who You are and all You’ve already done.
Lord, someone is on the verge of breaking down from the emptiness and lack of love he or she feels. Lord, someone is on the verge of going back to adultery or abusive relationships or inappropriate relationships just to feel loved, if only for one night. Lord, someone is on the verge of going back to sexual sin because he or she cannot hold out for love any longer. Lord, someone has confused sex with love. Lord, someone is in a loveless marriage, longing for companionship and passion, and has contemplated seeking love elsewhere. Lord, help us to know that all of this is deception from Satan himself.
Going back to sin and stepping out of the boundaries of love are fleshly decisions. Help us to operate in the spirit of self-control. Help us to have faith and not doubt that when You see fit, You will give us the desires of our hearts. Help us to fill the void in our hearts with the only true filler, which is You and Your Holy Spirit, God. Lord, we know that You love us and that You created us in love and with the desire for the love of a mate. We know that what You said in Your Word is true, so we believe You for unconditional love this season.
But meanwhile, we need touches of love from You each day, God. Every time we start to feel low, just a touch of love from You will penetrate our hearts and give us hope. Dispel all loneliness, hopelessness, and emptiness right now in the name of Jesus. Make us whole right now in the name of Jesus. Give us patience and peace while you transform us and our mates and prepare us and our mates for the love to come this season. In the mighty name of Jesus, we pray. Amen. Jené Elaine Walker
