Some had extramarital sex before becoming a believer, while others made mistakes and missteps. Man is weak and sinful, so he falls into desire. Even Christians sometimes give in to temptation. For we are subject to the weaknesses of the flesh until we are with Christ forever.
In both the Old and New Testaments, God promised to faithfully forgive those who repent and believe in Him. The Lord declared through the prophet Isaiah: Even if it’s as red as crimson, it will be like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18). The Bible also says, “If we confess our sins, God is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”1 John 1:9). God can forgive those who have sex outside of marriage if they repent of their sins and ask Jesus for salvation and forgiveness.
prayer for those who have sex until marriage
Thank You for inviting men and women to be part of creation through the gift of sex and sex in marriage.Thank you for blessing humanity with your love, grace and blood. Jesus Christ, it paid for my sins. Lord, be with me as I pursue Your will throughout my life, whether single or married. In any case, Lord, strengthen me through your Holy Spirit to resist the desire to meditate sexually or engage in sexual activity outside the healthy boundaries you have set. Please help me to focus on what is pure, good and noble as Your Word says. And give me strength to wait.
I pray in the name of your Son Jesus Christ.
Sex and sexuality are gifts from the Lord. That is why the Lord dedicated the entire Bible to this subject. The book highlights the highs and lows of marriage, with an emphasis on the pleasures of physical intimacy. Christians should pursue sex within God’s boundaries. Because it’s a place to honor God and find true contentment.
“Like lilies among thorns, so is my love among young women…my darling speaks to me and says: ‘My love, my beautiful, get up and leave. Please… my darling is mine and I am his ”(Song of Solomon 2:210, 16).
