I've been assaulted by evil thoughts all day today, mostly thoughts of doubt, nihlism, atheism, bad thoughts of other people, etc. I keep trying to repel them using the Jesus Prayer but they just keep coming back. Please pray for me. :(

I am praying for you.  Am having similar problems myself.  When praying you just have to push on through, sometimes.  God will aide you.

I'm not sure if this will be effective for you, but I find that doing the sign of the cross on my forehead dispels bad thoughts extremely quickly. Follow this up with the Jesus prayer, and if they manage to make it through, cross your forehead again. Wash, rinse, and repeat.  :)

Lord, have mercy on thy servant!
