Porn temptation

I ask for prayer help in bearing cross and resisting pornographic temptations. I was told that to bear crosses even Jesus had Simon help him, so your prayer help is of great value to me and anyone else with such a cross struggle. Thank you. Prayers reciprocated.

I’ll pray for you. When in temptation against chastity do this cycle:

  1. Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.
  2. O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to You.
  3. In the names of our Lord Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary, I renounce the desire to use my own body or the body of another for my pleasure or satisfaction. I renounce the spirit of lust that afflicts me. And I affirm that my only hope and comfort is in God Himself. All else is futile.
  4. Into your hand I commit my spirit. You have redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God.

Open with #1 and #2 then repeat #3 until the temptation ends and when you have achieved victory pray #4.

Do not despair, God will save you

These prayers will change desires in your heart and change how you view the world, I myself use them

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection and sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by 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 the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

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.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

I pray that the Lord assists you in your walk of holiness. May He relieve you of the temptation to view pornography, Amen.

LORD Jesus please guide your son.

Father please helps this person with their temptation. May they focus on other things in life and no about lust. May they read devotionals daily or when this comes into play. May they walk strong in Christ and follow your word. In your word, Jesus 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.

I pray that our Heavenly Father provides you a boost of redirection, strength, and mindfulness of ways to crowd-out temptation.

Please don’t let your mindfulness of your failings tend to nudge you away from God. No matter what, keep on running to and seeking Him and His grace.
