Please pray that I do not despair


#1

I just betrayed God by committing a certain mortal sin. I did it so casually, even rationalizing it at the moments immediately after it happened, thinking whether I should confess it or not. I still want to ponder whether I was in the right state of mind upon doing so or not, but whether or not my mind was clear at that moment I want to own up to what I did and it was an abomination.

I need to see a priest soon, and I’ve already prayed to God and asked for his forgiveness and mercy. I’ve talked to Our Lady about it as well. I have faith in Him and I know that he will give me the grace and grant me forgiveness.

But the devil is attacking me while I’m down. I can’t get to sleep and I’m being tempted by a feeling of despair. I need as many prayers as I can from the saints in Heaven and my brethren here on earth right now. Thank you for being with me.

For the intentions of Alpha_One:

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle;
be our safeguard against the wiles and wickedness 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 other evil spirits, who prowl through the world, seeking
the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Dear Alpha One -

Please don’t despair! You’ve already been forgiven by asking for God’s pardon. He loves you and knows your need for strength in this time of trial. Think no more about whether you were in the right state of mind or not; that could be a trap to be used by the devil - fly to confession and trust in God’s protection until then.

I will pray for you tonight.

in His love -
Annie :signofcross:

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 Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.

I am where you at, my friend. Praying very hard for both of us though I do not feel like praying…it’s such a struggle sometimes.

The spiritual battles are exhausting.
