I am really curious. How many people here are using NFP/complete abstinence in consultation with their spiritual adviser or priest?
Since the Church allows for the use of complete abstinence or periodic abstinence (aka NFP) if you have a serious/just reason... are you consulting with a spiritual adviser about your reasons to make sure they are serious/just?
Are you praying about it on a cycle by cycle basis with your spouse?
If you have a reason for long term NFP use or abstinence, I don't see a reason for praying about it each month. Kind of like, yep a pregnancy will still kill me, nope, don't want to get pregnant. What is there to pray about?
I am not in quite that situation, but we are in a long term situation, with no end. :shrug: We know the only two options open to us is long term total abstinence or long term use of NFP. Other than praying for a medical cure, what would my prayer be about?
