    Greetings
    I'm new to this site (though not new to trying to quit). I think this group is a great idea, and I would like to join into the prayers and discussion. I participate in a small group associated with my church, and while it is a good bible study, rarely do we confess our secret sins or discuss topics such as pornography. One of the worst aspects of our addiction is that it's nature is so shameful that we can not confess it to our brothers in public, much less our family members and
    wives. I've been a follower of Christ for nearly three years now and trying to quit since before then. Is it ridiculous to think that it will work this time?

    I wanted to share with you guys what I read the other night, Hebrews 2:18 "For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.". Our God is awesome

    Yes, AfricanDude, it is good to know that our God understands what we are going through since He Himself took human form and experienced human nature. I think it is at least partly because of this that we can count on His compassion and mercy.

    I'm praying for all of us, that through Him we can triumph over the flesh.

    Asking for prayers as today is looking to be a difficult day to keep the thoughts out of my head. Haven't done anything and I won't. Just looking for support. I WFH so there's a lot of downtime to have urges but I'm not going to cave into them for myself, my SO and my kids. Thanks all. I love this site!

    I'm new to the group. I'm 29 years old, female. I need help. I'm also here to pray for others. I'm addicted to PMO or just MO. I don't need to watch it. I'm a Christian but can't seem to repent of this sin. So how does this group work? Has anyone on here gotten over their problem?

    Midwest man I hope you were able to make it through your difficult day. I'm praying that you will be transformed permanently and that the habit and even thoughts that lead up to it will no longer be a part of you

    I agree with you. It's a hard topic to bring up to my immediate church family. I'm hoping we can help each other even though we don't know each other.

    I think we can.

    James 5:16Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective

    This is from a passage that is often interpreted as being about sick people, but the word rendered sick is often translated as weak in Paul's epistles. I think that James is saying that we can help each other heal from our weakness.

    I see no reason that this forum can't be a vehicle for us to confess our sins to one another and pray for each other. We might balk at the end of the verse, thinking that we are not righteous so our prayers wont carry any weight. But remember, we are redeemed by the blood of Christ and have forgiveness for our sins. We are righteous in God's sight, and that is who we are praying to.

    In our individualistic culture we tend to pray for ourselves, but it may be that there is more power in our prayers for others. We may not see any dramatic sudden changes as we pray for each other, but the Bible says that prayer works and I trust the Bible.

    I have failed enough times to know that it is easier said than done, but still we must read our scriptures and pray continually in order to persevere through these tests of our faith. God's grace in our lives is largely dependent on our faith.

    I will pray for all of us this morning.
