  1. Then explain this , The Bible says who so ever aan findeth a woman findeth a good thing I tried my Ex's , my crushes, female friends and women I wanted to meet but it just ain't working out I want her to come to me though but then I feel like he doesn't answer my prayer

  2. I have been struggle with porn for years but i overcome it. Here’s how i did it : Fasting and praying. I did not fasting from food but from porn and masturbating. I have tried to break porn many times but i did not success. The other day i went to church and the pastor was talking about how to live a Christian life. I was crying because i recognized how God loves me and what i did just like non-believers and like the old me. After that church service attending i realized 2 things (i) what i truly need is love not porn and (ii) i can not break porn addiction if i have a distance with God. Then i decided to drop the pass and lean on God. Whenever i have an urger i confess my sin and pray to God out loud that how i broke porn addict. Hopefully my sharing can help for somebody in need

  3. I've had an off and on struggle with pornography since I was 12 and im 34 now.. Ive done all I can to break free, praying, fasting, speaking the word over my life, I'm even married now with children and it's still a struggle, thats the most worrisome part because I don't want my children to ever experience something like this. I want to open up to my wife because ive kept it hidden all these years but I'm so terrified of what would happen. I know I need to expose this sin for what it is, I know I need to be open about it but I'm so embarrassed and afraid to do so.. I want to find healing for my body and mind and I know before that can happen, I have to first confess to my fellow man.. please pray for me, that I can find the boldness to open up to someone about this and not keep it hidden any longer.. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!!!

  4. To anyone struggling with porn listen to the songs "Who you say I am" and "Reckless Love". No matter how much we have sinned God still loves us and has a purpose for us! Take it from me who used to struggle with Porn God still loves you and DID NOT create you to whither away. He has a plan for you. Claim that porn addiction was who you used to be but not who you are now! Praying for all my brothers and sisters out there!

  5. This young man is impressive. I'm glad there are strong leaders that are available to youth today. This topic wasn't spoken about when I was a teenager struggling with my own addiction. Keep doing God's work! Peace be with you.

  6. Am 23 and have watched porn about 10 times only. The last time I watched it, I was nearly dead, disconnected from God, depressed, suicidal, I couldn't believe the results of watching would be that severe. But thanks God am free.

  7. I would love to serve Jesus like John Piper! However, my heart is so hard and I don't feel repentance in me 🙁 It almost feels like God had forsaken me. I'm only 16!!!! I have a desire to preach the Gospel but I don't feel Jesus' love

  8. I am discipling a friend who is struggling with porn and I need help with it. I feel like I've told him everything I can and read the Bible with him so much, and he just keeps failing and he feels terrible :(.

  9. After 10 years of salvation, first 6 months of being born again, I didn't fall, I was SO caught up in the love of God that I let that keep me… Then after 6 months, I fell again…. Oh how I wish I would have never fell back into the trash…. Jesus have mercy on my filth, help me to have a total hatred for it & rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome it… please pray for me people.

  10. in the name of JESUS….father everyone in this chat needs your protection from this….i repent…..i cry out to you father to remind us day by day hour by hour min by min that GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU than he that is in the world…our faith is in you father….we pray to stay in the LIGHT…..amen

  11. At this point i'v stopped asking The Lord for forgiveness. I keep relapsing into this sin. I'm afraid my begging for forgivness has lost it's value and it doesn't really matter anymore. So i've stopped doing it. I try to life by His commandments, but i just look like a lukewarm moron, even if I don't want to be. I guess i'm destined for Hell, might as well enjoy the little time i have before the Flames….

  12. I agree that opening up is very helpful but of course people don't open up because fear of judgement. How are the people being asked to listen going to know how to listen? Instead of cutting off the person that needs a listening ear? This temptation with lust a continuous struggle. And temptation is all around. People are afraid to listen when their loved ones say they are struggling. I agree with him completely.

  13. It happens to many people. I am over 35 and I struggle from having an ex wife who was a real mess and cheated on me a lot and was abusive

    Whatever it is that causes us to stumble, we need to turn to God for forgiveness and help!

  14. I’m about to be in a relationship with a Christian Woman and I’m still dealing with this struggle!?!? She’s struggled with it before but hasn’t gone back to it in so many months while she knows that it’s still an ongoing battle for me.

    Why I keep going despite the damaging toll it takes on me and my relationship with God and her…? I don’t know. But I want to end this so bad. I have to.
