[FONT=Arial]Hello everyone. Ever since my decision to pursue the priesthood, I have been met with severe spiritual and physical opposition. There has been an increase in oppressive and obsessive thoughts; temptations to try and sway me away from my recovery from addiction and my interest to see if I have a vocation to the priesthood. My confessor believes there may be a demonic entity responsible for the oppressive attacks, based on the nature of them, and because they have been getting worse as I try to push forward. I believe I have these problems because God wants me to see my powerlessness and to give myself fully to him. This is the only way I could ever be a good priest, brother, or husband; whichever one God wills me to be. So, I'm asking for prayers both for me to always look towards God for strength, to do His will, and to fight the good fight always. Also I'm asking for prayers, for the demonic forces to leave, if they are there.
Thank you all for your prayers.
