It is important to remind people who are dating to put Jesus first in their relationships. It is also important to encourage them to pursue honor, respect and purity. The greatest thing about Jesus is that he is a RELATIONAL God. When many beliefs require rituals and religion, Jesus pursues a reckless love relationship with us. So when praying for people in dating relationships, challenge them to love and treat like Jesus would.
Possible things to pray for:
· Pursuing purity, honor, respect and love in your relationships
· Focusing on Jesus together
· Wisdom on choices people need to make regarding their relationship
· Seeking God’s desire for their lives
· Staying accountable for and to each other
Verses to share:
I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the does of the field, that you not stir up or awaken love until it pleases.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.
For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God;
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
