Please pray for Freedom and Purity!

I am trying to overcome sexual sin(Masturbation) and watching porn/have lustful thoughts.

I am able to go for periods without giving in(weeks/months), but then fall again. I am under 30 and single…it is part hormones, part loneliness and sometimes a way to releive stress …but in the end i receognize the sin and its addictive power…please Pray that i will be free from Lust and grow in purity…

I also despair because this drives me further from God and doubt my salvation.

God bless!

May God’s grace show to you the beauty of purity and the depths beneath its still waters. May He unshackle you from your need of relief by giving you someone most beloved and lead you to true sexuality :smiley: Amen.

Hail Mary, Full of Grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among 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.

Remember,
O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins my Mother;
to thee do I come,
before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful;
O Mother of thy Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy clemency hear and answer me.
Amen.

Hail Mary conceived without sin.
Pray for us who have recourse to thee.

I suffer the same way, you are in my prayers.

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.

May you find a good, holy priest to be your confessor/spiritual director. Praying that with his help and with the grace of God you can be delivered from these addictions. May you pray a lot and avoid all occasions of sin. May you do plenty of spiritual reading and practice true charity with your neighbors. 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.

Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary,

that anyone who fled to your protection,

Inspired by this confidence,
though burdened by my sins,
I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you I come, before you I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.

despise not my petitions, but in your mercy,
hear and answer me.
Amen.
