October 31 – Evening


But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

(1 Corinthians 5:11)


Dear God,

You have called us to live a holy and righteous life, separating ourselves from those who continue in unrepentant sin. Help us to be discerning and to not associate with those who claim to be believers but are living in disobedience to Your word. Give us the courage and wisdom to confront and discipline those who are willfully engaging in sinful behavior, with the hope of leading them to repentance and restoration.

We pray for the strength to uphold Your standard of holiness in our own lives and to be a light and example to those around us. Grant us the grace to extend love and forgiveness to those who have strayed, while remaining firm in our commitment to live in accordance with Your will. Let our actions and words reflect Your truth and lead others to a deeper relationship with You.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
