Few days ago I got an Anonymous question on the issue about couples praying together. I’m retyping/re-blogging this again and making it an actual post.
So praying together. Is it advisable? Doesn’t praying together promote inappropriate intimacy between a couple? 
Men and women were created to be attracted to one another. We desire for relationships. We need community, connection, and companionship with the opposite sex. It is part of who we are as humans. If you go back to Genesis, God made Adam first and then made Eve to be his ‘HELPER’. We are not meant to be alone. We are meant to be in relationships.
We’ve been taught in the church that desire towards intimacy was anything but good — unless you’re married — and a couple should refrain from anything that might promote such intimacy (sex is obviously out of the picture if you’re not married to the person you’re dating), but things like holding hands, hug, kiss and prayer included. Let me say this, there is nothing wrong with being intimate with your partner.
Intimacy isn’t the problem, SIN is.
When a couple starved themselves from intimacy and function like robots during the process of their dating/engagement, guess what their honeymoon would look like? AWKWARD. You can’t just switch the ‘intimacy button’ and be intimate. it’s a process and it develops and grows but it needs to be guided by God along with His Scriptures.
Many Christians couples who desire to avoid the effects of sin and idolatry in their dating relationship, they set up all kinds of boundaries and when those rules and boundaries fails, they change it up over and over again while meeting a similar fate.
NEWSFLASH: man-made rules are not sufficient for our battle against sin.
Paul says in Colossians 2:23 not to put your trust in any man made rules because they may appear with such wisdom but they don’t really stop the indulgence of flesh.
External rules don’t kill the internal roots of our sins.
We convince ourselves that if we just do these rules and modify our behaviors, everything will fall into the right place. The real danger, the real battle isn’t from the outside, it’s from the inside.

Guard your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life (Prov. 4:23)

We don’t need those ‘man-made legalistic’ rules. We need new hearts. We need the gospel of Jesus Christ to help us grow deeper in that.
So how exactly does a couple set themselves on a God-honoring trajectory with respect to intimacy in their dating relationship? Paul gives us a great example on that.

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is anything, but only faith working through love (Gal. 5:6)

This verse means, ‘Faith working through Love.’
As we focus on the gospel of Jesus Christ, we center all our relationships on Christ and we follow His example of what real love looks like. That overflowing love filled with faith is meant to lead the other person to Christ, not to ourselves. So everything we do with our partners, we count the cost. We are mindful if what we’re doing brings that person more to God, or to ourselves.
So Fill in the blanks:

For in Christ Jesus neither [praying] or [not praying] is anything, but only faith working through love (Gal. 5:6)

According to Romans 14.23 ‘everything that does not come from faith is sin.’
So get this, sin isn’t only seen in the “bad” things we do, but all the “good” things we do with bad motives, bad hearts — including praying or not praying in a dating relationship. 
I’m not against RULES or BOUNDARIES. Just not as ends-in-themselves. If they aren’t leading you to Jesus, then they are simply “self-made religion.” as what Apostle Paul would say.
In conclusion: how far is too far when it comes to kissing and hugging? When should they pull back? When a couple prays, when should they pray and where? there’s tons of questions that needs to be considered. But to make this simple, I believe that there’s always a right moment to KISS, HUG, PRAY and be intimate in a God-Honoring way. It doesn’t mean you’re a dating you own each other and you’re free to do wahtever you want. NO. Use wisdom and right discernment and always put God in the center of every decisions that’s being made.

Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. -Romans 12:10

I was on the train today and on my way to the city. It was a long travel. I look out the window, a verse popped in my head. So I decided to pull my ESV bible outta my bag. It only took 1 flip in order for me to stumble upon these verses. I’ve read them before but I seemed to have forgotten them. And this time these verses just became so alive to me. If you don’t mind, I’d like to share what I’ve learned from Him today here.

Let your love be genuine & sincere. Hate what is evil and stay away from the things that might cause you to stumble; instead focus on the eternal things. Focus on Me.
Love everyone in your life like how you love your own family. Even those people that always give you a hard time, love them. Matter of fact, honor and respect everyone, regardless of how they treat you.
When it comes to serving and growing, don’t be lukewarm and lazy. Never settle for staying the same ‘spiritually’. Instead strive for growth and learning. And when you serve the Lord, serve Him with passion and with excitement.
As an Ambassador of God, a Follower of Christ, and a child of God, you have all the reasons in the world to be happy and be hopeful. Why? because you have Christ. So always rejoice and be happy. And when trials and sufferings come along your way, be patient, be faithful and be constant in prayer. If you see a need and an opportunity to shine His light through you, help those in need. Your Father in heaven honors that and will reward you.
If people mock you & persecute you, make no move. Instead ask God to bless them. And when your friends are happy, rejoice with them. If they’re sad, stand along side with them, and carry their burdens.
Live in peace with everyone. Avoid being prideful and thinking you are better than everyone else. but be willing to be friends with people who are not important to others. And when someone does you wrong, allow God to do the revenge for you. You just need to be still. 
On the other hand, still love those who have hurt you. Jesus loved us even when were still sinners so why can’t we do the same thing with others.
And most importantly, don’t be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.  
Overcome everything with LOVE. - Romans 12:9-21

This may sound too difficult and too radical, but being a Follower of Christ is never easy, it requires a total surrender and devotion to Him.
I asked myself these questions earlier today. ‘Is my life marked by all these characters? Am I all about love? or Am I bitter?’ Twas really convicting. I don’t know about you, but maybe ask yourselves those questions too.
He was here because of His message. We are now saved because of His message. Now our purpose is to spread His message. To spread His LOVE. To spread His Gospel. And in order to do that, we must allow Him to transform our lives and be Marked with the characteristics of His son, Christ.
In Christ,

Dear Satan, 
FIRST of all, you have no idea that I will write you this letter. You didn’t see this coming, why? because you’re not like my Savior Jesus Christ who knows my every thoughts & my heart from the inside out. Poor you, you can only feed thoughts in my head and not read my mind. Your only hope is if I bite back, and I have to admit.. I do, sometimes. But that’s okay.
I purposely wanted for you to read this. As God as my witness and my other fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, I will express what I feel about you, why? So that we can all stand against you and your lame deceiving lies.
SECOND I want you to know that I HATE you and the evil that you bring.
I know.. hate’s a pretty strong word. But Scriptures says:

Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. - Romans 12:9

I think it’s safe for me to say ‘Satan you’re evil therefore I HATE you.’ I know I’m commanded to love my neighbor and my enemys. But Obviously you’re not human so you’re definitely not my neighbor. So just to make things clear, you are an enemy & you’re evil, therefore I shall hate you because you are evil.
LAST thing, before I continue with this last thought, I have to warn you, I don’t think you wanna read this last part, Because I know you’ve read this part from somewhere, I think it’s the last book of the bible called REVELATION.. and I don’t think you wanna be reminded of what I’m about to say, But I will do it anyway.
As much as I fall for your lies, and deceiving ways, and the thoughts that you put in my head, and how some days I stumble, I want you to know that..
YOU HAVE NO POWER OVER ME!
You know who has power over you? Jesus Christ. He died on the Cross and He rose from the grave proving that He is fully human and fully God. He paid for my sins (past, present & future) I’ve been bought and redeemed by His precious blood. He owns me, you don’t.
Did I forget to mention that He is The Ultimate and Righteous Judge. The One who will judge the living and the dead.. that includes you.
I hope you’re trembling with fear right now.. you should be, by being reminded by this. Because I know, and you know, WE ALL KNOW, that at the very end of this life, it says in Revelation, that you Satan,

who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where him and his angels had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. - Rev 20:10

I may fall from your dark schemes and lies from time to time, but that won’t stop me from Loving and following God. I will strive to stand against you by the power of the Holy Spirit that’s living inside of me.
At the end of the day, that’s all you can do, tempt me. Lie to me. hoping you can stray me away from God and drag me down to hell with you? That’s not gonna fly with me. My best advice for you is enjoy and have fun on what you’re doing now, because when ‘this’ all over, I don’t think you’ll enjoy being tormented in HELL. 
P.S. - Dear Followers, re-blog so other brothers & sister who are struggling can be encouraged!
