Ciara and her boyfriend have decided to abstain from sex

Los Angeles - Ciara and her boyfriend are abstaining from sex.

The Goodies singer agreed to compile with Russell Wilson's request that they abstain from lovemaking after he claimed to have received a message from God and he thinks the decision has made their relationship stronger.

He said: "[Ciara] was on tour, and I was looking at her in the mirror, and God spoke to me.

"He said, 'I need you to lead her.' I told her, 'What would you do if we took all that "extra stuff" off the table, and just did it Jesus' way?'

"I said to her - and she completely agreed - 'Can we love each other without that?'

"If you can love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody."

However, the 26-year-old NFL star admitted it isn't always easy sticking to the sex ban.

Speaking during an interview with Pastor Miles McPherson at San Diego's Rock Church, he said: "I ain't gonna lie to y'all now - I need you to pray for us.

"I know y'all have seen her on the screen. If there's a 10, she's a 15."

And Russell feels blessed to have the 29-year-old singer - who has 13-month-old son Future with her former partner, rapper Future - in his life.

He said: "I knew that God had brought me into her life to bless her and for her to bless me."
