Lust is SUCH a hard battle to fight. I need prayer and guidance. I can't do this by myself.

Greetings. Hope you will get better with this and if you're a Christian, a saved one of the Lord, I believe you will.

 

To simply call it lust, lust is a desire. Sexual lust may be what you're referring to, because this has always been the most common lust people talk about when they say it's a battle and its out of control. But lust can be for anything. You're definitely not alone. I'm sure there are also multiple people here who will pray for you. But when it comes to guidance, i dont know if you expect to receive that here or in person. its also very different how you need guidance and help with it being porn or actually sexual activity with other people. but maybe that's not the lust you mean. I've struggled with it, but I am better now than ever at staying away from it. I'm trying to make my heart desire my wife and not anyone else whenever the thought crosses my mind. I hate it, its always more painful to give into it. I've grown a desire to hate it and more of a desire to not want it more than the desire to want it. 

 

if you need anything else, you can let us/me know

As someone who has experienced this, I know it is a hard battle, but you CAN overcome it. Prayer is significant, but you still have to make the decision to resist those thoughts and temptations when they come. Whether by talking to God, or by finding something else to keep busy.

A close friend of mine advised me to do like Jesus when He was tempted. Quote the Scriptures. Say "It is written" followed by Scriptures. A good one I like to use when resisting tempting thoughts is Philippians 4:8

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

I remember being in such a struggle with lust one time. That I actually made myself fast( wasn't a real hard fast) to slow it down some. Like I mentioned in your other post the Old Testament prophecy books really helped me out a lot with lust.
