Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit

and at the hour of death.
Amen.

Are you able to find a Church nearby where a priest will be able to see you? The first step is to find a priest who is willing to help you.

i’m kinda going from church to church trying to find one i like. i haven’t really talked to any of the priests exept one and he looked at me like i have four heads, was not helpful

I understand. Someone better who is willing to relate with you is often more difficult in these days. I will pray for you that you will find a priest who is willing to give you some of his time and who is willing to try to understand some of your needs. There is always someone. You just have to help him find you.

I hope this doesn’t sound rude or strange: Find a good priest who is an exorcist. I’m not saying that you need an exorcism but I think such a priest would understand the depths of your problem, and help you make the right steps towards spiritual freedom. He might refer you to somewhere else but any counsel, advice or referral would be the weight you need. Find a Spiritual Warfare conference. in your area.

Praying that the Lord may mercifully lead you to Himself. Also praying that He may grant you strength and all necessary graces.

Praying for you…

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Your Name
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Kingdom
and the Power
and the Glory for ever and ever.
Amen

O my God, leaning on your great power and your promises, I hope with a firm reliance obtain forgiveness of my sins, the help of Thy grace and eternal life, through the merits of Jesus Christ my Savior.
Amen
~
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
Amen

I’ll be praying for you as well. And make an appointment with a priest so that you can actually sit down and talk about your issues. I have found that most priests are easier to talk to when given the time since right after mass is a bit hectic.

Nothing “happens”? Are you expecting Jesus to do “magic”. You are coming from a strange bag of “tricks”. Do not expect God to act like the circus you are trying to leave behind. You need to believe, repent and be baptized. You have to become obedient to the Lord. That’s whats supposed to “happen”.

Praying that God’s Will be done. He sees your heart is in the right place.

Don’t expect some magical moment when you realize that Christ has noticed your acceptance of Him. If you are catholic go to confession, and make an honest statement or apology expressing sorrow for your involvement with the occult.

Then take every single day and work on something in which you can serve Christ. Say the Our Father, read scripture, continue spiritual direction, do something kind for someone and then offer these efforts to Christ. Accepting Christ is a daily journey and often that journey is barren and dry. Don’t let that fool you into thinking He does not know of your efforts. He does.

Praying for your good mental health & recovery.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Isuse, otkud si?

Don’t give up.
Unfortunately in my country, many priests also seem to have no interest in building real relationships and real communication with the people in their parishes.
But it is possible to find those who are kind and have a real interest, so don’t give up.
Do you know any religious people you could talk to for a recommendation?
