“If you are tempted to commit any form of sexual transgression, seek help from your parents and bishop.” – For the Strength of Youth

I, ____________________, commit seek help if I ever am tempted to commit any form of sexual transgression.

“To accomplish His plan of happiness, the Great Creator planted within us an instinct that makes boys interested in girls and girls interested in boys. That powerful inclination can lead to beautiful experiences, or it can lead to terribly ugly experiences. As we look out over the world, it seems that morality has been cast aside. The violation of old standards has become common. Studies, one after another, show that there has been an abandonment of time-tested principles. Self-discipline has been forgotten, and promiscuous indulgence has become widespread.

“But, my dear friends, we cannot accept that which has become common in the world. Yours, as members of this Church, is a higher standard and more demanding. It declares as a voice from Sinai that thou shalt not indulge. You must keep control of your desires. For you there is no future in any other course. I should modify that to say that the Lord has provided for repentance and forgiveness. Nonetheless, yielding to temptation can become like a wound that seems never to heal and always to leave an ugly scar.” – Stay on the High Road by Gordon B. Hinckley

Have I prayed to my Father in Heaven for help resisting temptation and overcoming inappropriate thoughts and feelings?
