Have you known the pain of someone you love dying from drugs, or being a Jekyll & Hyde personality through drugs & alcohol? Are you being tempted into trying drugs yourself or do you binge drink to dull the pain & memories? If you do, please pray for yourself here or for the person you know who you want to protect. Our God is so strong & powerful, turn to Him & fight for yourself & your loved ones.
i know someone at the moment who has admitted to struggling with a very delicate problem- masturbation. they feel disgusted with themself for doing it again and again, but this person also suffers from a form of OCD, and experiences bizarre impulses which makes them find it diffiucult to stop, even though they know its wrong. i pray that you wil help them break free- they feel such a failure.

don't be afraid
The failure feeling is what the enemy wants to them to feel, because he will be always trying to make them feel guilty, that they do not deserve mercy from God.
What i can tell you is that they must review their past, and quit to any familiar curse. Example many people that use masturbation as escape for problems is very difficult to quit because is an addiction.
They must review themself, example, if they already had sex with their girlfriend, they must try to quit to this spiritual link. Also if in their past they were abuse by a parent, they must try pray to God and forgive these people.
And the most important thing they must be praying for that and never give up, never!!
if they are trying to justify themself and say THAt they will never change they need a friend as you to be always checking how are they going in that issue and motivate to continue fighting, never let them go.
May be this pray help you to use it with your friends.
Father, thanks for everything you have bee doing through your holy spirit, forgive us for all we had done in our past (an each one say) I (your name) want to give you the best of me but i can not do it because i know that i am fighting againts sexual thoughs, masturbation, (anything that is making they do that). Please Lord help me to do the right and give me the victory over these battle. Please let me forgive myself and anyone how had been damaging me.
Also remember that young people sometimes, well in my culture, they teach us that if we want to have a girlfriend, this is only because you must know this girl and after that you must decide if you marry her. So many young people do it to try to sleep this area that they do not want to do some kind of sexual inmorality with other people.
Also you must remember them that what their are feeling is normal, but they must have control over their body, they have to reclaim the bible for themself. look for versicles that teach about selfcontrol and memorize them.
Is a big war what are you doing, but in the name of Jesus all of you will have win!!
Sometimes is embarrasing to talk about this issue but they must understand that they must not care what people say, belive me God will be proud if they stop to do that.
Living through a global pandemic is the sort of thing you expect to study in school, not live through yourself. The lockdown which has rippled across the globe has changed the way all of us live our lives...
