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.

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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.   :)
