Prayer for those fighting porn addiction

Heavenly Father though the internet is a useful technology, it has led to a wider addiction to pornography that corrodes self-respect and family values and even damages marriages, leading to sin.

Father, in Jesus’ name, please help all those who are tempted to porn and related sin. Father forgive and heal them. Please give them strength to resist to temptations against chastity.

Please urge them to avoid such occasions of sin as internet porn, each time temptation arises. Help them to break the habits of seeking these occasions of sin that lead to further sins.

Please lead them to activities, that honour You and benefit others and their own well-being, especially in acts of practical kindness to others, and in rightful homage to You.
Please surround their lives with Your light and love.

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

I ask our blessed Mother, and their angels and patron saints to pray for their healing
and for God’s loving will for their lives to be fulfilled.
St Maria Goretti please pray for them.

Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the LORD,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7

Breathe in us, Holy Spirit, that all our thoughts may be holy,

Act in us, Holy Spirit, that our work, too, may be holy,

Draw our hearts, Holy Spirit, that we may love only what is holy,

Strengthen us, Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy,

Guard us, Holy Spirit, that we may always be holy.

Lord Jesus,You said,
“I have come to set the captives free.”
We are captive and need Your healing touch.
Free us, Lord, from our addictions,
so that we will be:
…free from the cares and worries that stifle our happiness;
…free from sins that cling to us, and to which we cling;
…free from all compulsive behavior
that prevents us from becoming what You, Lord,
have planned for us.
Bring us, loving Savior,
to the experience of abundantlife
which You promised.

Amen.

My dear Redeemer,
it is not from custom or human respect
that I come to receive Thee;
but it is solely to love and be united to Thee,
to live by Thee and for Thee,
to be delivered from my miseries,
to clothe myself with Thy virtues,
to strengthen myself against my enemies;
it is to ask from Thee the exaltation of the Church,
Thy beloved spouse,
the conversion of sinners,
perseverance for the just,
and deliverance for the poor souls in Purgatory.
Purify more and more my intentions,
rectify them, O my Jesus,
render them conformable to Thee;
this is my sole desire.

Amen.

Praying hard.

Breathe in us, Holy Spirit, that all our thoughts may be holy,

Act in us, Holy Spirit, that our work, too, may be holy,

Draw our hearts, Holy Spirit, that we may love only what is holy,

Strengthen us, Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy,

Guard us, Holy Spirit, that we may always be holy.
