porn


#1

This is a dual request.

I have a friend who has been 'swinging' for 15 years with his wife. I think he's at a major crossroads in his life, being called away from it. (I personally think he's got a few very Catholic relatives up in Heaven praying day and night for him.) Please pray for them both, for God's will in their lives.

Some things he said led me to the site of Shelley Lubben, a former 'porn star' who now speaks out against porn. Particularly striking was her comment that virtually every porn star is coming from an abusive childhood. It reminded me how much we don't know about what brought people to where they are, and how much they need our prayers. Please remember to pray for these people, and for her success in speaking out against this industry.

Praying hard! So many overlook how deeply destructive pornography is, both to the viewer and the participants.

Dear and precious Lord, have mercy on those seeking help from their addiction to porn. Deliver them from this bondage in Your Holy Name we pray, Amen.

Out of the Darkness can help. It is a video Documentry resource which is quite powerful. While some of the reviews are mediocre, those I know who have seen it think it's a great resource. Gives a lot of background information on how we became such a sex saturated society and the devastation it is doing to our society. Well worth a look.

Father please bless this man and his wife with purity and righteous Christian living

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in 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
