Living out Biblical Principles: A Young Woman’s Prayer of Chastity

From Stacy McDonald at Your Sacred Calling,

I have made a covenant with my body to be discreet and chaste; why then should I flaunt myself before men? Does God not see my ways and count all my steps (Job 31:1,4)?

Has He not said that marriage is honorable among all (Hebrews 13:4) and that the woman who allures men even with her eyes is as a seductress (Proverbs 6:24-25)?

Help me, Lord, to honor marriage—my own, as well as the marriages of those around me. Help me to love my husband (or future husband) by remaining pure, by not revealing the intimate parts of my body to others (1 Cor. 7:2-4), and by saving my affections for him alone.
