Romans 1:24 NLT
So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies.

Series: The Do Nots of Praying

God did not punish the idolaters like Sodom and Gomorrah nor warn them like Nineveh, but abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired.

Wrong prayers are born out of us having a wrong god. If your God is Jesus, what you desire is Him. If your god is wealth or sex, all you desire is wealth or sex. It will become your ultimate goal and consume your life.

When the church pushes for its own will, it’s making of it a god. If you make God the centre of your worship, your needs will be taken care of.

When you push for your will against God’s, you are on dangerous ground. You risk getting the wrong prayer answered and risk idolatry, and be abandoned to shameful things that your hearts desired. Jesus prayed “…please take this cup of suffering away from Me. Yet I want Your will to be done, not Mine.” Luke 22:42 (NLT)

Let His prayer becomes yours too.
