Deliverance from sexual impurity
« on: May 20, 2010, 03:53:06 AM »
I have had an lapse into lustful thoughts and looking at and reading things I shouldn't on the internet. Please pray for me that I will be able to resist further temptation when it comes and will not fall again as I have the last two days.
1 Samuel 25:22 (KJV)
So and more also do God unto the enemies of David, if I leave of all that pertain to him by the morning light any that pisseth against the wall.

The advice for helping the OP has been split into its own thread:
http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,27707.0.html

Please focus only on prayer in this thread, and give any advice in the other one.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I pray you will feel yourself in the Lord's Embrace and know that no matter how lonely it may feel in the world at times, no matter how much you long for love, know that you are loved and cherished deeply by Him.   :)

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
