You can’t fight your addiction alone. God gives us support along the way.
The following is an email I sent to the International House of Prayer, last month. I would like to share it with you. I think it speaks for itself.
I want to take a moment to thank you guys for providing this live stream of prayer and worship. I am disabled and don’t get out of the house easily. So it is nice to be able to just turn on my computer and be able to join others in prayer and worship.
Although, I am physically disabled I consider my addiction to pornography my real disability. I have been working on my addiction for the last four months and haven’t looked at pornography since.
Some days it is a real battle, like today. I was fighting my thoughts and a strong physical desire for the release I get from pornography. People in recovery will tell someone to physically do something else like taking a walk or something. I can’t do that!
So I turned on the stream from the ihoppkc YouTube page. Within maybe five or ten minutes of praising God while singing along with the worship team I was able to relax. I got through the temptation before I got to the point of acting on my addiction.
I want to thank the ihop team and everyone who’s donations make this possible. Thank you!
