Prayers for Struggle


#1

While I feel personally selfish for asking this, I must do otherwise. I am fighting a personal battle with myself against the temptations of lust and gratification. In my relationship (which has turned unhealthy), it has become more and more about the physical temptations, than the aspect of love. Also, I fight a battle at home with the temptations of lust (pornography, etc) that lie on the internet and at home. Please, pray for me as I fight this battle and if possible, I could go for some advice. I am 20, acknowledge that I have this problem, and want to fight this battle to victory. God bless everyone for there time, and for there advice. Thank you.

It seems like more and more of us have been getting hit by this. Maybe Satan has seen the power of the Catholic Forums and is trying extra hard to get his hands on us. Fortunately, we got friends in higher places.

What works for helping me overcome such sins is prayer and lots of it. You have no idea how powerful a daily Rosary is until you try it.

You’re in my prayers.

Know that many others are fighting the same battle with you. Just make that decision to be a warrior and pray for supernatural help.

          St. 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 prowl about the world, 
          seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.
