I pray for Your people to exercise self-control. I pray it particularly because of this present age, which is hostile to any sort of self-control. Help us resist everything that is set against us to tempt us to follow our impulses. Help us to go against the flow of our culture. But let us not exercise self-control merely for self-control's sake, but to exhibit love for God and our neighbor. So that our self-control may not be a cold, aloof thing, but a warm, loving thing that can attract others to You.
In Jesus' Name,
