Prayer Works on Porn


I'm upstairs in the study, the room tucked around our bedroom.  My husband?  He's downstairs on the couch, playing a video game with his friends online.

It's just a typical Friday night.

But, it's nearing 10:00pm and I am tired.  Why not just shut off the computer and cuddle with the pillow that beckons me to sleep after this long day?

Because, friends, it's time to pray.

For those of you who do not know this part of my story, my husband struggles with a porn addiction.  He's recovering, yes, but he still needs lots of support and help.  Me sneaking off to bed, longing for the cool sheets right now, is not an option.  It's not part of the plan, at least, not yet.

First, I must go downstairs.

  1. I've learned this in my own little world over here. Sometimes I feel like I'm dying to myself by praying instead of 'taking control' over the situation. Jesus is much better at this and more affective than my mouth or my actions unless it's directed to the One who can. It is so HARD, but worth trusting Jesus to take care of it. So get it!
