These days countless numbers of youths within the house-hold of faith are chronically addicted to masturbation in secrecy, as this is not a habit that is frequently spoken about or preached about on the pulpilt of any Church openly these days; thus, causing many people to continue to struggle with their addiction almost with a sense of hopelessness. It has also been discovered that equal to men who are struggling with being addicted to masturbation — females are also just as susceptible too. Often times, masturbation addiction is accompanied by an addiction to pornography.
The effects of porn addiction in the Christian churches are staggering. Most Christians would rather hide their head in the sand than admit this is a problem let alone talk about it. Those who are not addicted to porn are not aware that this problem.
And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. Since the internet is awash with pornography and most people are or have engaged in fornication and adultery and other sexual perversions I believe the spirit has a stronghold over many peoples' lives. This is a despicable phenomenon, but nevertheless real. Don't think you are crazy or weird if you are a victim.
Heavenly Father, I have a couple of friends that have got into pornography and it grieves me as I can see the damage that it is doing not only to themselves but also to their families. Lord I just want to lift each one up to You and ask that in Your grace You would meet each one at their point of need. Give me wisdom to know the best way to help each of my friends and keep me I pray from falling into a similar destructive pattern of behaviour.
Healing for your sexuality is available; this is a very hopeful truth! But you must realize that your sexuality is deep and core to your nature as a human being. Therefore, sexual brokenness can be one of the deepest types of brokenness a person might experience.
The problem is with masturbation is all sin starts with a thought and turns into action. That means those fantasies could turn into sexual sin with someone else outside of marriage and then live with regrets or consequences. Some of you will ask is it ok for married couples to masturbate.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Today we are going to be engaging powerful prayers to overcome self stimulation. Self stimulation is a process where which one reaches orgasms through the self stimulation of his or her genitals. Self stimulation is very common among teenagers and young adults.
But I also acknowledge that as a result of their sinful beliefs and practices, they had also sinned against you in many ways. Today I choose to forgive my ancestors for the consequences of their sexual sins that have affected me. Please break the yoke and power of this generational curse of sexual sins off me.
