I'm struggling in the area of purity. Please pray for me.
Oh Holy Apostle, St. John, pray for us

Lord have mercy
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Lord have mercy.
Christ turned the world upside down; and when the world was viewed from such a remarkable perspective, it suddenly made sense -- Fr Andrew Greeley

Thanks for your prayers, all. Your prayers are working, as fighting temptation is getting easier for me.

Lord, have mercy on this one who wishes to server only You.

Breath slowly, and at times, deeply.
Walk away at times.
Avert your eyes all the times.
Seek good friends.
Stay active.
Go have GOOD fun at times.
Be still at times.
Pray.
God is The Creator of All Free Beings
