Praying from 1 Thessalonians 4:5 relating to Purity, Holiness, Knowledge of God.

Dear God, please help me to resist the temptation of lust and not give in to the ways of the Gentiles who do not know you. Give me the strength to honor you in all my actions and to live a life that is pleasing to you. Help me to seek your will and follow your ways, so that I may grow closer to you and experience the fullness of your love and grace. Amen.

Verse: not in the passion of lust, even as the Gentiles who don’t know God,
1 Thessalonians 4:5

This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to not engage in lustful behavior like the Gentiles who do not know God.
