Prayer for Protection Against Impurity
My God, we live in a world that often pushes us towards impurity. Various forms of media and societal pressures may tempt us to compromise our purity of mind, body, and soul.
I ask You, Heavenly Father, to protect me from these influences. May Your Word be a lamp to my feet and a light to my path, illuminating the way that I should go and protecting me from stumbling.
Enable me to guard my heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life. Instill in me the wisdom to make decisions that align with Your will and honor Your commandments.
And when I face temptations, remind me of Your faithful presence and the empowering promise that no temptation has overtaken me that is not common to man.

Committing To Purity
As I commit my self to a life of purity, give me the power and strength to maintain it always. Lead me Lord, in the path of righteousness. Direct my steps. Correct me when I go astray and bring me back to You, my Eternal Father. Wash away my sins, make me white as snow.
Change me, Lord. My language, my way of life, my sinful ways, may they all be of You. Help me to be an example of Christ-like purity. Help me to maintain those virtuous standards and values I have placed for myself as well as those around me, Oh Jesus, be my center. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
