  • Pray 4 Hamster Superthread

    I need prayer with regard to willpower and resisting temptation

    1. A Reprieve from temptation, even temporary, because it is exhausting and demoralizing
    2. The strength to cope and deal with impulses when they arise

    I am currently reading a book about willpower and while I'm not hoping to join the Green Lanterns I'm hoping that it will make life a bit better

    If you can remember me in your prayers briefly I would greatly appreciate it!

    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

              No, I am just tired and typed the wrong thing. Fixed it. Thanks for pointing that out.

                            You're not alone, hamster. We all struggle with temptation - in fact, I was talking just yesterday with my priest about dealing with temptation. And though the idea of confessing to a priest was a huge barrier to conversion, I've since found it extremely helpful.

                            Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom
