30 Things to Pray about for Missionaries
Day 23: Immorality
When Balaam could not pronounce a curse on the children of Israel, He gave Balak a counsel, which he knew would expose the Israelites to God’s wrath. He asked Balak to send Moabite girls into the camp of the Israelites, and the result was that twenty four thousand Israelites were destroyed because of lust and immorality (Numbers 31:16, 25:1, 9). Frontier missionaries are daily buffeted by enticing daughters of Eve seeking to stir up lust in the missionaries. In many places, missionaries live in the midst of people whose usual dressing is half-nakedness. Single and married missionaries alike are regularly exposed to the spirit of lust and immorality.
- Today, rebuke the spirit of lust in and over the lives of missionaries.
- By the Spirit of God raise up a standard against it.
- Intercede that no missionary you know will have his ministry truncated by lust or immorality.
