Praying with Paul: 'Unequal Yoking'

Unequal Yoking — 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1

2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1

Dear Father, worthy of my undivided loyalty,

May I never be yoked to any person or organization that does not have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. For what partnership does righteousness have with iniquity? What fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? What agreement has your temple with the temple of idols?

I am your temple, the temple of the living God! For you have said, "I will live in them, and move among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore come out from among them, and be separate from them, and touch nothing unclean, and I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters."

Thank you, my God, for this promise and this command! May I never compromise my loyalty and commitment to you! Cleanse me from every defilement of body and spirit, and make your holiness perfect in me.

In the name of Jesus I ask, and according to his will. Amen.
