I need prayers for this destructive problem

For many many years I have regularly watched porn (of many kinds) and it has become destructive to my soul, my faith and my connection with God. I go to confession frequently and wont take the eucharist unless I have confessed pornography and masturbation. I give in so quickly, and I need strength through prayer. I am a young man, and I don’t want this to ruin my future or my character or my relationship with God. Please help. I feel helpless at this point.

Thank You

Brother, you have a problem that so many men grapple with. You are not alone, and you are doing the right thing turning to your brothers and sisters for prayers, seeking out regular confession and partaking in the Eucharist whenever you are in a state of grace. Please continue to fight the good fight, and cooperate with the Lord. Invite him again and again into your life, into the hidden areas of your mind and soul that compel your habit, and beg for his mercy and healing. Know that the power of the Holy Spirit is infinitely more powerful than your addiction. The Lord has his own time tables for dealing with these things, for reasons known only to him, but your persistence in prayer is critical to defeating this spiritual cancer. Don’t be afraid to confide in other men of faith, as the Lord may choose to work through these men to help you. I offer my prayers to you. May the Lord overwhelm your urges and bring you the spiritual nourishment you thirst for. God bless you!

Thank you very much

God Bless You

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

I ask our blessed Mother, and their angels and patron saints to pray for their healing
and for God’s loving will for their lives to be fulfilled.
St Maria Goretti please pray for them.

Lord, please be mindful of MBrown’s desire to overcome sin against the sixth commandment

Praying hard.

Praying for you …

May you pray ceaselessly for the grace you need to keep pure. May you pray, pray and pray some more! May you consecrate yourself to our Lady and pray the rosary every day for the virtue of purity and the spirit of prayer. May you love the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul and strength, and keep away from all occasions of sin. May you cut out bad tv, bad movies and bad literature and stick to good Catholic spiritual and scriptural reading. May you receive the Bread of Life as frequently as possible for the grace and strength you need to fight the battle against impurity. May the Lord help you and have mercy on you. Amen.

You folks are too kind. Thank you for the love and support. May God bless you.

Praying for you.

By the way, something I learned on here that continues to help me is praying five "Hail Mary"s the moment I’m feeling tempted. I recommend it. God bless!
