Based on the title I should add, “And I Hate It.”
I have no excuse for the sins I struggle with to be quite frank with you. Perhaps the only commentary I can add is that so much of our culture normalizes egregious behavior that even the smaller things seem not to be “so bad” in comparison to the larger things, but I know better. I also feel as if though I’m letting down Our Lady of Guadalupe and God, because they’re trying and I turn away.
I didn’t know what to do, so I looked for advice and found this great article:
When doing a google search there were a lot of great resources from a Protestant perspective and the only reason I didn’t share them was because I worried any of the information relayed may have gone against official church teaching. I do however, think it was a great starting point when wanting to learn why we fall so easily in terms of grave sins.
I felt called to write prayers and decided to write this particular prayer for anyone who struggles with any sin that weighs heavily upon their soul and sense of well being. Please feel free to use this prayer in your time of need.
Prayer to Ward Temptation of Repeated Sin
Our Lady of Guadalupe In my time of weakness, I turn away from God, Allowing flesh and the Temptation- whispers of The Greatest Deceiver asking me to fall. Pray for me. Lead me. Hold my hand. Lead me back to the loving arms of Jesus, So that I may rise up And overcome this sin. For Jesus is my salvation And with your intercession I can overcome anything. -Amen
