“They did according to all the abominations of the nations that the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.” (1 Kings 14:23)

Father, Your righteous indignation is aroused when those who are called by Your name conform to the evil and adulterous ways of the world.  Repeatedly You call us to be salt and light in a world that is decaying in darkness.  You sent Your Son into the world to deliver Your people from this evil age (Gal. 1:4).  How tragic, then, when Christians find their pleasure in the same wicked pleasures which the world delights in.  Set us free, O God, from the fleeting pleasures of sin.  Grant us to abhor what is evil, and to hold fast to what is good (Romans 12:9).  Forbid that we should pay money to be amused by things that belittle Your glory and trivialize the horror of sin.
