Catholic prayer for chastity in dating
Giving in to lust terminated in adultery; then adultery led to murder and murder to the suppression of the conscience. Jesus warns us: “Stay awake and pray; the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” 8. Human weakness does prevail over us and we can all fall.
Worst of all, above and beyond the fall into any sin, is that of despair.
Jesus invites us with these words: “Ask and you will receive… Saint James admonishes us: “We should be slow to speak and quick to listen.” (Read St.
James 3—the sins of the tongue) But this is especially pertinent with respect to purity.
God can allow an evil to bring even greater good out of it.
We have been dating a few months and I believe there is a good chance of marriage one day.This means you have to set definite boundaries that you both agree on, i.e keep both feet on the floor at all times, door open, don't hang out in the house alone, etc. And praying the rosary, especially with the intention of discernment of the relationship, is great for chastity- I read once that it helped Padre Pio as he struggled with chastity.[quote="Hwargo, post:1, topic:448440"] Hi, recently I have started dating a wonderful Catholic man.It's been really hard for me because of all the hormones still flying around. -Haley [/quote] The Catholic Support Group for Sexual Addiction Recovery can help you. Pray the rosary together, keep yourselves busy, don’t spend time alone in the house. I’ve found over the years that the best way to keep oneself from impurity (besides prayer of course) is to have a full agenda.It was the very first organization on the Internet to help people with sexual sin (not just addiction). There are no membership dues or fees; it is free of charge. It’s true what they say, the devil makes work for idle hands. But if you do fall, you just have to pick yourself back up and go on.
