I was intimate with my girlfriend and I tried to lead her into a more serious bodily temptation. Please pray for me. Forgive me.
Thank you.

Lord, have mercy.
“God,”
The words rumbled:
“There is much suffering,
But the church is alive. "

 “How long, Archpriest, are we to suffer thus?” I answered: “Until our very death, Markovna!” And she replied, with a sigh: “So be it, Petrovich, let us plod on.” - Life of Avvakum by Himself

Nastasya, Nastasya, be
patient and do not cry:
Not every happiness
Comes in the clothing of fortune.

St. Avvakum, pray for us!

St. Ambrose, pray for us!

Thank you.

Kyrie eleison.  Please bless the relationship of Nathanael and his girlfriend, and if it be thy will, sanctify and govern it that it might blossom for both of them in accordance with Thy commandments, and bless Nathanael with every assistance when confronted with the passions.

Please also fill our brother’s heart with tranquility and peace, that he has been forgiven, for the benefit of his faith and the strengthening of his piety.

~

Also, we all forgive you and understand Nathanael.   I am going to pray for you and your relationship, that you might discern if it is the right one to be in, or if not, that you can discern your proper vocation.  God bless you, brother.

It happened again in the past weeks. I also was watching pornography & practised onanism. Please forgive & if possible pray for me.

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

If the sin of Onan was to have sex with his levirate wife, and withdraw, and ejaculate on the ground so as not to raise up seed to his brother, than why is masturbation considered "Onanism"? Masturbation, however sinful it may be (and it is), cannot be the sin of Onan, since that sin was refusing to raise up seed for his brother in Israel. Shouldn't the sin of masturbation be called exactly that, rather than an inaccurate euphemism? Nevertheless I shall pray for you, that all may be well with you and your girlfriend. As for viewing pornography, that is a temptation that many men face. I shall pray for you.

Diego, the prayer forum is for prayer and praise, not lectures and commentary.  Refer to the RULES to refresh your memory, and as you are not new here, I am issuing you a 20% warning.  You may appeal this decision via PM.  Thanks.  —Ainnir
