Coming from a culture where women were meant to cover their
heads before men in modesty, I was raised with the knowledge that modesty was a female duty aswell as priveladge. Entering the outside world I realized that many people had embrassed the ways of babylon. In highschool I had met young girls who had multiple sexual partners and for a young mind that was very confusing but it eventually set the standards for the next few years.

Prayer for Christian women
In the holy name of Jesus Christ I break and bind and remove from my body and life every demon that came upon me through any act of adultery, fornication and immoral sexual activity. I remove these curses and demons that came into my life and body through any adultery, fornication and immoral sexual activity for eternity in the holy name of Jesus christ.
Father God your word says in Deuteronomy chapter 7 verse 15, And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.
Father according to your faithful word, heal my body of any and all diseases that came upon me through sexual immorality and disrespect shown towards men. Sanctify my temple that I may bring honour to your holy name.
(Get two or three other women to pray in agreement with you)
