Pray to Overcome OCD

Please Lord,

I pray that you give me the strength and faith to overcome my OCD. I ask for each day a big improvement in my condition so I can serve you with an open heart and an undistracted mind once more. I’m not asking for an instant cure but rather improvement each and every day until I am soon whole again. I love you, my savior.

  1. Prayer for OCD

    My Son has OCD too so I know how difficult life can be for you. I pray that God will help you to ignore the tormenting thoughts that make you feel so anxious and can make you feel compelled to do rituals to feel better. Try to imagine the thoughts as an annoying out of tune radio that you DON’T have to listen to and turn down the sound/thought. Nothing bad will happen I promise. If you think about it, the rituals you do that you hope will make things better, actually make things way more difficult for you. So ‘turn the sound down’ as much as you can. These are only ‘thoughts’ and NOTHING BAD WILL HAPPEN if you tell them to go away. I send you love and pray that you will find peace and calm very very soon. God Bless You – things WILL get better.

  3. pray for me

    I have made great strides in my ocd but I ask for prayers to get over the final hurdles, I will also pray for all of you on this board

  4. OCD

    I have had OCD since I was a little girl and I am now 57. Thank you “Mum”, your prayer helped me. I hope I can follow through. I will remember your prayer each time a ritual (which happens almost all day long unless I am preoccupied) comes up.

  5. Feeling good again.

    I thought that this was unjust. I recently heard of a kid who went through only 3 years with these wretched thoughts; I thought it was unfair and asked God why that kid only went through 3 years and I’ve gotten 6. I asked Him where my way out is and why I haven’t seen it. You, my friend, instill some inspiration and I am glad knowing that someone has been able to endure such temptation by the devil and his demons for 60 years and has never given up. I won’t fall and now i will continue my fight, with JESUS. I believe that He will help me though this disgusting temptation and obsessive compulsions, and i know that i will defend His HOLY SPIRIT forever. If any of you would like to pray for me, my name is Edgar Solis. I am 18 years old and i am tempted by demons that use the HOLY SPIRIT’s name in degusting and wretched ways, in an attempt to make me believe that He tempts me. I know He does not tempt. Nevertheless, i fear that He hears these thoughts and i my greatest fear is…
    that He’ll leave me. I only ask you for one thing…
    that you pray that these demons and their master the devil will not corrupt the image i have of the Almighty HOLY SPIRIT OF TRUTH.

  7. ocd sufferer

    I have had these terrible intrusive thoughts and thought I was the only one. I did a google search and found out what I had was ocd and many people also have it. I was so relieved that I wasn’t crazy or this was only in my imagination. thank you all for your prayers and words of comfort I have read on this page. may God grant us healing and peace in our hearts and minds, in Jesus name, Amen.

    Trust and believe…but most of all…have FAITH. God is a good Good. Train your mind to think good positive thoughts. When you feel overwhelmed in thoughts and feeling, say…God is good and he LOVES me. God will see you through. Amen

  9. Ultimate suffering

    I am a OCD sufferer for many years which began when I was only 8. I am suffering in silence since I was young with repetitive thoughts and unending debates on the most ridiculous matters of daily events. But like most of OCD sufferer I have no power to shut/alter my mind to focus on something else if I’m unable to complete those existing debate in my mind. At times, I need to go to the toilet or somewhere quiet just to listen to my thoughts and find ways to counter it. It’s really a constant daily battles and it’s really tiring. Fortunately it left me when I grew older. Last week I had a major fight with my bf, I was overthrown with anger, disappointment and sadness which I ended up hitting him with slaps on his face and body. Since then I’m overwhelmed with guilt how I turn into a monstrous person by hurting a person physically though it’s not detrimental. I’m appalled, thereafter my OCD relapse with recurring thoughts I might have hurt his kidneys or organs in some way despite many assurance from him he is feeling alright. His Blood pressure spike up after our fight due to the fact he is angry but has revert to normal level now. He even went to the doctor to get check up and doctor has advised there is no internal injuries. He keeps reassure me that everything is alright. Despite all that, I keep thinking he might be suffering an internal injuries and might die as a result of my assault and I might be jailed for life. This crazy thought keep attacking me and I keep repeating myself to him a string of questions ranging from “has doctor checked all your organs?” “What did the doctor say?” “You sure the doctor has checked you thoroughly?” I keep asking till the point i have no control of stopping my thoughts as the possible outcome he might die and I will end up in jail forever scares me. It’s been a week since our fight and I keep reassuring myself he is OK but I just can’t stop myself from thinking what if… Please help me.. I’m driving myself crazy And I even need sleeping pills to sleep. I’m convinced that my OCD now is the worst as I’ve hurt a person n I need to keep reassuring myself by asking questions that he is OK

  10. Its Not Easy Battle

    This is really encouraging to see we are all afflicted, I have been having this for 10 or so year it keeps changing. sometimes it goes especially and comes back. Its really tormenting that this thoughts cant just leave. after prayer it feels good and i hope its gone only to come back. I tell God i am tired of this thoughts, since i am unhappy and afraid that i do things i had promised not to do before The creator. Sometimes it feels that I am alone but now i Know its a weapon satan uses to attack many. May we all find strength and hope to that Jesus will hear our collective pleas. Lord Help Us all from all sorts of OCDs, Give our hearts peace in Christ Jesus, as i am going to be baptized soon its tough my head aches

  13. Hope remains

    i have experienced OCD since i was 12 years old now im 22 … I consider OCD as a blessing ..this weakness made me discover God and the love of our Lord ..He helped me through many unwanted thoughts and many sleepless nights! He comforted me and I Know i’ve been through very difficult periods and experienced OCD flare ups through critical and stressful events in life but i am sure that God can turn ur mess into power ! I SURRENDER my thoughts to him and my lovely guardian angel that helps me in a magical way!
    do not give up my friends Love shall set us free because our Lord is a Lord of freedom and happiness ! let us throw all those destructive thoughts or just let them play again and again in our mind while we try to laugh and tell the thought that we choose to live without the fear ! we choose to be happy!
    I’ve been having the same thought for almost 2 years it kept me away from Jesus and our beloved church and it was driving me crazy ..it became even more complicated sometimes ..but i know that It will pass and I’ll be stronger now that i decided to rely on my savior Jesus again:)! I’ll tell you soon that i’ve overcame it! Pray 4 me and may the Lord bless ur thoughts and your life! Do not give up he loves you so much and he’s watching you suffe ..Your faith will win 🙂

  18. Loving Mother

    I am a mother of a son who has developed OCD. I blame myself for his condition as I was very hard on him growing up. Before being diagnosed with a Learning Disability, I was often impatient and unkind when he couldn’t remember what I had taught him, often resulting in tears and anger. How I wish I could erase those terrible memories from his and my mind.
    Many years later, I have watched my son struggle with making and maintaining friends, often being ridiculed or simply left out. How my heart aches for him. I pray for forgiveness and for his happiness. If this disease needs to afflict someone, I ask the Lord to send it to me and not my son. He has suffered greatly all his life and I beg of you to let it stop.
    For all the mothers who sit in silence as their child endures such a terrible disease, my prayers of healing go to you and your loved ones.
    Please pray for my son.

  19. Praying for peace

    Dear Loving Mother

    We serve a loving and merciful God. He sent His precious Son, who suffered unspeakable afflictions here on earth, so that you and I and all who call on His name will not go through the storms of life alone.

    Hold on to this Truth with all of your being. We ALL have a God given purpose, regardless of our hardships. Your love and support for your son is your Ministry. He is very blessed to have you!

    You can count on my prayers for you and your family. Peace will come.

  20. Your Not Alone.

  21. my son has OCD

    If I had one wish it would be to clear the minds and lighten the hearts of those with OCD. i was drawn to this page as I am praying to sweet Jesus through our Holy Mother to keep my son’s guardian angel with him for he next several hours at least. He is out of my reach at this time so i can’ get to him.He is in a situation because of the ocd and seems to be trapped because of his obsessive thoughts about germs.Please pray for him as I will be praying for you!

  22. Intrusive thoughts

    My OCD came back a year and a half ago. I had intrusive harm thoughts when I was younger for 4 years. It came back so bad this time I had to go get help.. i wasn’t sleeping with a broken record in my head. It is literally torture to one’s mind. But I am making improvements just very slowly.. I’m not a fan of the depression that slips in there either. I am really hoping I will get a break soon like I got when I was younger. I realize something though.. The Devil attacks the strongest people in Christ.. this board is proof. Keep fighting, God bless you all!

  35. Suffering since I was 7

    Dear Lord,

    Although I am still a child (now 14) I need you to help me overcome my OCD. I had it since i was in second grade. My classmates would always ask why i did such weird things. I didn’t know why I did it and my mom thought it was just a tic. It’s getting worse and I need you. Please help cure my horrible illness, i’m already suffering from other mental illnesses, thank you. Amen.

  36. Recently discovered my OCD

    I am 17 going on 18, and I only became saved months ago and before then never realized I suffered from religious OCD. I guess it makes sense because I obsessively wash my hands and use hand sanitizer after I touch almost anything. I constantly am tormented by terrible thoughts and whispers from the enemy, blasphemous thoughts abt God The Father, Jesus Christ, and especially the Holy Spirit. It ruins my days and keeps me from enjoying life, which I know is not the will of my Heavenly Father. It sometimes gets so bad that I withdraw from the persons of God and feel almost threatened by them, which I constantly pray and cry out to the Lord because I know it is a lie from the enemy. I get woken up by an audible voice saying blasphemous things abt the Holy Spirit and Jesus. Some days I feel resigned to Hell because these thoughts trigger doubt abt God’s goodness and who He is. I especially suffered terror that I had committed the “unpardonable sin”, which makes me obsesses abt it and make it worse. I felt so much love for God and Jesus and had the fruits of the Holy Spirit when I was first saved, and now I have the hardest time even having faith in them and finding joy in everyday fun activities. I had an online therapist for a little while but it didn’t seem to help. My mom and dad won’t talk to me anymore abt my panic and anxiety because they’re so tired of it, so I just stay quiet. I know they love me, but they are tired. I will never give up though, even though many days I feel like it. I must pray a hundred prayers a day. I read the Bible every day, even when it hurts. Some nights I am able to feel comfort in the Word, and hope those nights progress. I now play Christain music while I sleep, which helps most nights.
    God please deliver me from this torment my Lord! I want to love you and serve you with an open heart and a renewed mind! Restore faith and allegiance to You deep in my heart and help me to follow the guidance of Your Spirit which is Holy and here to aid me in my walk. Help me to trust in You and find comfort in You. I pray this in Your Son Jesus’ name, Amen.

  37. Ocd

    Hey Liz I deal with those blasphemy thought and dealt with germs I got freed from the germs saying its under the Blood of Jesus just like this other thing I fought it trying to change negative to positive thoughts made it worse I pray God has mercy on me to deliver me from this it got so bad like my lips are going to change what I am saying its blahhhh 🙁 just use God’s Word know it’s the enemy. Don’t fear the thoughts don’t do what I did. Read 2 Corinthians 10:5
