1 Corinthians 7:2-3
“But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband.”
-Apostle Paul gives a statement of acknowledgement that sexual immorality was prevalent in Corinth as it is today in our various societies. It is proper therefore for married couples to only have intimate relations with their spouses & the unmarried to marry lest they continue to burn with passions (1 Cor 7:9). Deprivation of ones conjugal rights has been cautioned against in marriage which might occur as a punitive measure to the other partner & end up to be disastrous but should not be an excuse for the deprived to sin. Hebrews 13:4 also tells us that marriage should be honored by all & the marriage bed kept pure for God will judge the adulterer & all the sexually immoral. We have hope in our merciful God for He helps us in every weakness, forgives us our sins & delivers us from all evil; so that we may remain guided by His word.
Jesus our Lord You are the head of our marriages, may Your love take over our family bonds so that we may only do that which is pleasing to Your eyes. Help us to harbor forgiveness in all marriages & relationships; in the realization the You forgive those who forgive others, & reunite all broken unions according to Your will. Forgive us all our sins Father; full of mercy & deliver us from all evil. Be gracious to all the unmarried ladies & gentlemen Lord; that they may be united as one in Your divine purposes for each of us. Direct us & walk with us Father; in all things. Amen
