Default Please Pray to Help Me Stop Cussing...

Dear Sisters and Dear Brothers,
Ever since going through a horrible trauma that began 2-1/2 years ago,
during which I completely lost my faith and fell away,
but have come back,
I have developed something I never did for YEARS,
namely, the habit of CUSSING.
Not so much G - D IT !! or stuff like that (though in surprise I do say
"Oh my god" and "for god's sake," and stuff like that, though I try not to).
But I'm talking about dirty language,
s**t, F****K, B***CH, and @****Hole. I should not use that language,
and from 2005 to 2010 or 2011, I never did.
I have gotten back into using it especially when (frequently lately) angry, frustrated
or otherwise upset.
Tonight I blew my stack and turned the air blue
when I somehow caused my plate full of dinner (ravioli, sauce, vegetables)
to literally go FLYING out of my hands and the food went flying everywhere all
over the ROOM and all over everyTHING.
I was LIVID and turned the air BLUE with filthy epithets at the top of my lungs,
and am now deeply embarassed.
I do not belive I mortally sinned at all, because it was of Passion, not deliberation,
but still I don't want to have this cussing habit.
Please if you could, send up a prayer for me to stop this cussing.
God bless you,
Jaypeeto4

Remembering you in my daily prayers. I have the same problem (although thankfully not as violent).

God bless

Sacred Heart of Jesus give strength to jaypeeto4 so he/she can prevent any more curses from leaving his/her mouth. Have any anger or frustration be calmed before any curses may leave his/her mouth. Hail Mary...

I will be praying for you.


May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace.

Lord, please help Jaypeeto4 to imitate your gentle meekness and humility of heart whenever he begins to get angry and wants to vent his anger and cuss. Help him not to cuss but to pray the moment his passions begin to take over. Help him always to have immediate recourse to you and to our Lady in prayer the moment he begins to get angry. May he take time throughout his day to make resolutions not to cuss should some person or persons start to do him wrong. May he pray throughout the day for you to grant good things for these people in this life and in the next. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer.

I struggle with cursing, too. It's a very difficult habit to break. Each time I catch myself, I ask the Lord to forgive me and to help me break the habit. It's getting better, but I still have my moments.

Hail Mary, full of Grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou amongst women
And blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus
Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners
Now and at the hour of our death

Amen

This is a prayer from St. Maximillian Kolbe. Our Lady offered him either the crown of purity or that of martyrdom. He took, and received, both. I think it will help all of us who tend toward cursing, especially taking the Lord's name in vain, and other impure language.

Prayer to the Immaculata
O Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and Earth, refuge of sinners and most Loving Mother, God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy on to you. I, a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet, humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to yourself as your possession and property. Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you. If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of you: "She will crush your head" and "You alone have destroyed all the heresies in the world." Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the Blessed Kingdom of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. For wherever you enter, you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through your hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

V. Allow me to praise you, O Sacred Virgin.
R. Give me strength against your enemies.

Amen.
