I can’t go into detail, but my masturbation addiction and bisexual attractions have hit an all-time low. I’m handicapped and so can’t get to confession as much as needed. I’m receiving the Eucharist, because my pastor said that we need the graces from the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Also, I cannot simply cross my arms to signal that I’m not receiving, so everyone knows that I’m not receiving since I have to shake my head. It hurts my family very much. Please pray that I want to kick this addiction with God’s Grace. Also, please pray that God, who knows all of our desires, will either send me a woman to marry, or otherwise give me the ability to control these passions. Please pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for me. Pray that God keeps me alive long enough to make it to Confession, and that at the hour of my death that I may receive the Viaticum. Also, please go to Confession. Maybe my suffering can convince at least one soul to go to Confession more often. Pray for everyone on these forums as well.
Here’s the text of the Divine Mercy Chaplet followed by a list of saints who are special to me whose intercession I would like. I don’t know if this is allowed, but I’m putting Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation on the list. I have prayed for relief from mental illness for so long, and as soon as she died, the cloud lifted. I have no doubt she’s praying for me. So please pray for her canonization, and that of Venerable Fulton Sheen, Blessed Chiara Badano, “Little Audrey,” Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, and Servant of God Blandina Segale, S.C.
God, come to my assistance.
Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end amen.
O my Jesus, … I unite my desires to the desires that
You had on the cross (1581). I call upon You
and … beg Your mercy for poor sinners. …
O Most Sacred Heart, Fount of Mercy from which gush forth
rays of inconceivable graces, …
be mindful of Your own bitter Passion
and do not permit the loss of souls
redeemed at so dear a price. …
O Jesus, let every soul trust in [Your] Passion
and place its hope in [Your] mercy.
[You] will not deny [Your] mercy to anyone.
Heaven and earth may change,
but [Your] mercy will never be exhausted.
Jesus! I desire to bring all sinners to Your feet
that they may glorify Your mercy
throughout endless ages (72).
I now embrace the whole world
and ask You for mercy for it (1582).
You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.
(Repeat three times)
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

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.
4. Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.
5. The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Eternal Father,offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

10. Optional Closing Prayer
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon 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.
