Several months ago, I became aware of an 18-year-old college girl who was making headlines because she had chosen to pay for her tuition by making porn. Although known under an alter ego identity in the sex industry, her real name began to be used in interviews and articles… Miriam.
I’m not going to go into details about her story, but I can tell you that it grips me. Recent interviews show her conflict over the choices she’s made, yet she continues deeper into the pit of the sex industry.
One thing I know for sure, God loves her unconditionally. He sees past her scars, both literal and figurative. He sees her brokenness and knows exactly where the healing is needed. No matter how dark her world becomes, His light will never stop shining the way out of the darkness.
I’ve been compelled to pray for Miriam, and I’m asking you to do the same. For some reason, the Lord has prompted me to pray for her as my head hits the pillow at night. The quietness reminds me of how near the Lord is… and I ask Him to be near her as well.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Wherever Miriam is right now, I pray you would whisper your love to her. I pray that when her heart feels lonely or unsure of what’s ahead, the stillness of this night would leave her reaching for a love that’s real. Protect her tonight, body, mind and spirit. Reveal yourself to her – your affection and care that never go away. I pray that the rain of your Holy Spirit would soften the places of her heart that have become hardened against intimacy. She has her reasons, and you know them all. Send true believers across her path to show your unconditional love to her. Open her eyes to the truth and give her the courage to walk away from the lies of the sex industry. Show her the future you have designed for her. Nothing is impossible for you, God… draw her into your saving love.
In Jesus Name… Amen.
Join me in praying for Miriam, and challenge someone you know to do the same.
Ezekiel 36:26, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.”
