A prayer from the Trebnic for God's help in overcoming evil thoughts.
Is it a real battle for you to keep your mind from wandering to thoughts and daydreams that you know you shouldn’t entertain? Here’s a prayer from the Orthodox Service Book (Trebnic) to help with this problem:
May those who war against me be put to shame, and may those who seek to separate me from Thee through immodest acts, unseemly thoughts, and unprofitable reflections be turned back. Chase far from me every filthiness which is superabundance of evil. For Thou alone art holy; Thou alone art mighty; Thou alone art immortal, having unfathomable power against all things; and it is through Thee that every power is given against the Devil and his forces.
"I found Orthodoxy and AFR a year ago. They have both had a profound effect on my life. After 30 years as a Mormon, I have found the church Christ left on earth for us. It's very exciting, but at 60 I wish I had not wasted all those years on the wrong road. God willing, I am looking forward to many years as an Orthdox believer!!"
