    I'm a 17 yr old guy and i've been struggling with a very difficult issue. I've been trying to deal with it alone for the past couple yrs but now i need reinforcement. Ever since i was in jr. high i've been struggling with attraction to guys. I have never acted out on these thoughts or have done anything, so i'm not gay. I choose not to live that kind of lifestyle, but this struggle is really interfering with my life. I want a girl friend, but dont know if i can give her all that i have to give. This struggle has really brought me closer to God, we have an awesome bond. I just want prayer that this would go away and i can live my life without this constant burden. Please pray that i overcome this struggle.

    Thanks for reading, any prayer is appreciated.

    I'll definitely be praying for ya, just remember, the God of the universe who is sovereign over all things is ON YOUR SIDE. If you are a believer in Christ Jesus the SAME Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is working in you, and now prays on your behalf.


    I would encourage you to read 2 Corinthians 4-5. The word of God is powerful and can transform you. Keep in perspective what your life is for, and let the light of the glory of the knowledge of God motivate and urge you to live a life for the glory of Christ and for the spreading of His kingdom.

    Hi, I use to struggle with that issue too. I can tell you from experience that God will give you the strength to overcome this.
    You're in my prayers.

    Praying for you brother. Just remember that people have different struggles. Sometimes the church will make you feel like homosexuality is far far worse than someone who struggles with porn. Just stay strong dude and dont put yourself in positions where you are likely to be tempted.

    Bless you mate.

    I had a friend who struggled with something similar...I will be praying!
    And good for you binding up the strength to share your hardships. That in itself is huge.

    Thanks :) After trying to do it alone for so long, I had to reach out and ask for prayer. I thank God for the awesome brothers and sisters in Christ who are out there praying for me :)
