Wow, that’s some personal stuff. I’m honored you came to me for advice… I know it sounds simple to say he needs prayer, but it’s what he truly needs. Tell him to pray and go on a fast. Ever since I’ve started praying and fasting it’s become easier and easier to resist sin. You know how sometimes you feel like you can’t control your flesh and have no choice but to sin? Well fasting helps that so much. It make’s it so much easier to choose righteousness by denying our sinful fleshly desires. Of course there are times when I still fall, but it doesn’t happen as frequently as it used to.
I know fasting and prayer will help him because it’s helped me. I just started a fast where I don’t eat until 8 p.m. on every Sunday. You should recommend something similar to him. It’s been about a month now since I started my fast and every week I go through with it, I feel closer and closer to God so it’s definitely something I will be doing for the rest of my life. Fasting and prayer WILL help your friend. I promise. As he goes on his journey of fasting, tell him to constantly repent, pray and ask God to purify his spirit, body and soul daily.
