– Unfortunately, before coming to faith, I acquired sinful habits through a long-term disgraceful life. After coming to faith, I began to resist them, but I fall into sin all the time. May I, being a sinner who constantly falls into the sins of the flesh, pray with the Jesus prayer during the day and at home? How do I get rid of the lust of the flesh? I am tired of it.
– The more people stay in this state, the harder it is to get rid of it. This is natural. Christians resist their sins all life long; this is a long process. Endure yourself and do not fall into despair. And move forward with tiny steps. Pray and trust yourself into the hands of Christ. Appeal to the Holy Theotokos and avoid this problem in your mind.
