Ask God to shield you from any sexual temptation, protecting you from falling away from God's grace.
If we are honest with ourselves, the internet is a battlefield, and for many of us it is difficult to escape from sexual temptations. You don’t even have to go very far sometimes scrolling through Instagram can be enough to lead us away from God’s plan for sexuality.
As you prepare to surf the internet, don’t forget to ask God for help and to ask him to shield you from any sexual temptation.
Here is a prayer adapted from the St. Andrew Daily Missal.
O God, we humbly ask your majesty
that you would graciously shield
by your heavenly aid,
and preserve by your unremitting protection,
your servants who trust in your mercy,
that we may serve you always
and never be separated from you by any sexual temptation.
Through Christ our Lord.
