You can be One – One of One Million Women Warriors Praying for One Million Men to be Porn Free by clicking here and getting on the Women Warriors Wall.
Praying women throughout history have changed things! There is no limit to what can be accomplished through a woman who commits to praying, specifically praying for the men in her life and her church.
There is a crisis looming in the church, in every church, and yes, your church. Satan is silently attacking the minds of Christian men with a weapon which threatens husbands, dads, fiancés, and even church leaders. That weapon is pornography. Why is it so lethal? Men are wired in such a way as to be affected by what they see. Pornography is easily available, affordable (much of it is free), anonymous (nobody has to know), and it is addictive by nature.
The average age of a male’s first exposure to pornography is age 11. According to Baylor University’s Counseling Center- Four in every five Christians believe pornography to be morally unacceptable, yet these stories are not so far from those told by many Christians. For a time Christians may escape the allure of pornography, but all too often the problem is as significant for Christians as non-Christians. In fact, 47% of Christians admitted pornography was a major problem in their home in a survey conducted by Internet Filter Review. Even more discouraging are the 53% of men belonging to the Christian group Promise Keepers who admit to visiting pornography sites every week. Christians may claim a different standard, but they still struggle with the same pornographic issues.
Unfortunately, the situation is not much better among Christian pastors. A survey of evangelical Protestant clergy conducted by The Leadership Survey in 2001 found that 40% of those responding struggled with pornography. Another survey in 2002 conducted by Rick Warren of Saddleback Church found that in the previous month, 30% of pastors had viewed pornography.
Apparently pornography does not show bias toward one’s religious affiliation or lack thereof. Some positive statistical differences exist between Christians and non-Christians. For example, Christians have a slightly later age of first exposure to pornography. However, Christians still seem to have all the same issues with pornography non-Christians experience.
One Million Men Porn Free is a movement to challenge men in churches of all denominations to make a commitment to live a pornography-free life. We are inviting men who have never looked at porn, and men who have, to make this commitment.
You can make the difference. Click here to become One of One Million Women Warriors Praying for One Million Men in Churches all over the world to be Pornography Free. An army of praying women could turn the tide on the pornography crisis facing the church now and in the future.
