Heavenly Father, I pray in Jesus’ name that ______________________ and I will be motivated by your Spirit to act in every circumstance with the same spirit of integrity that characterized the apostle Paul, and to follow the same course he did, so that our own behavior in every respect will be above reproach. I pray that you will restrain us from exploiting anyone or taking advantage of anyone or corrupting anyone. I pray that all we do will be done for the strengthening of others. I pray that we will be protected by your grace from sexual impurity, sexual sin, and debauchery. If we have indulged in any of these things, may we be grieved and repent and find forgiveness in you. I pray for your church in our community and in our nation, that you will protect us from quarreling, from jealousy, from outbursts of anger, from factions that would divide us, from slander, from gossip, from arrogance, and from all disorder. Make your church and our land a place where everyone is committed to maintaining the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Amen.
