Praying from Jude 1:8 relating to Defilement, Authority, Slander
Dear Lord, please protect us from the dangers of our own dreams and desires that may lead us to defile our flesh. Help us to respect and honor those in authority over us, and to refrain from speaking ill of celestial beings. May we always seek to follow your will and live in accordance with your teachings. Amen.
Verse: Yet in the same way, these also in their dreaming defile the flesh, despise authority, and slander celestial beings.
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader not to defile the flesh, despise authority, or slander celestial beings.
