Loving heavenly Father, I am ashamed of my years of addiction to pornography and ask Your forgiveness for allowing this to become such a terrible affliction in my life.. I have hidden this from my friends and family for so long, and the guilt and shame that I am going through is so painful. Lord I don’t want to hurt my family any more and Lord I don’t want to be disobedient to You and so I kneel before you in brokenness of spirit to ask that in Your mercy , You would lift me up out of this terrible pit – into which I have been sliding into for so long.

Father, I have tried different things to stop this addiction, that has become so torturous to me and so dishonouring to You – and I confess Lord that I can’t do this on my own. Help me Lord Jesus. I have tried and failed so many times, but now I come to You in humbleness of spirit to ask Your mercy upon me. Lord I know that in my own strength I will fail each time – but You have promised to be my sufficient strength in every and all situations – I pray that in the power of Your Holy Spirit I would finally and fully break free from pornography and by Your grace I will give you ALL the praise and glory – this I ask in Jesus name, amen!
