How often do you hear of a pastor falling to some manner of sexual impropriety? Too regularly. Pray for pastors to walk in sexual integrity. The enemy wants nothing less than to discredit a pastor’s character and sexual indiscretion is a primary way to do this. There is spiritual warfare for pastor’s sexual integrity, let us pray for pastors to delight in God, in their spouse if they have one, and to resist sexual temptation at every turn.
2. Pray for sexually mature marriages in the church.
Hebrews 13. Just because a person is old, does not mean they are mature. In like manner, just because someone has been married for many years does not mean they are sexually mature. Sexual immaturity plagues many marriages. Let us pray for God to move powerfully in our churches to raise of sexual maturity in marriages - and let us expect Him to do big things in seemingly impossible situations.
3. Pray for sexually mature singles in the church.

Pray for God to bring clarity amidst the sexual confusion. Pray for God to provide healthy relationships with the opposite sex. Pray for God to bring godly spouses into the lives of our singles.
4. Pray for sexually mature youth in the church.
Our young people are obviously being bombarded by sexually explicit material. Amidst the onslaught, young people need us to pray more than ever. Let’s believe for sexual maturity to be raised up among the younger generation in the church.

God wants to bring healing of the entire person - let us believe for and pray for sexual healing in the church. This is a very broad topic that needs individual treatment - look for that in the days to come.
