SSA or same-sex attraction begins as a silent affliction, shocking its victims, covering them in shame, and forcing them to suffer alone in the dark. One after another of these souls, finding little or no help, are too easily sucked into a whirlpool of politically correct lies giving them the pseudo-identity of a homosexual.
Understanding the causes is an essential element in overcoming unwanted same sex attraction. Many environmental factors contribute to the development of SSA, and researchers agree that no one thing is responsible. Rather, a conspiracy of factors come together in the right amount and at the right time to divert sexual desires to unmet emotional needs. While each person’s background is different, the emotional wounds, which led to same-sex attraction, can often be identified and healed.

Once a Day for SSA
Why form a Society?
The simple answer is that there is strength in numbers. Today there exist all manner of prayer and support groups for families who battle things like cancer, drug or alcohol abuse, or mental illness. For people of faith, prayer is the first line of defense and finding people to help pray for your loved one is natural. But for families who have a loved one who experiences same sex attraction or who identify as a gay, it is much more difficult. Many feel embarrassed, full of shame and guilt. Often times they have very legitimate fears of prejudice and rejection from members of their own family and church - the very places most people turn for comfort and prayer. Many SSA families carry their burden alone, silently suffering, hiding their 'big dark secret.' Forming a Society of Sorrowful Hearts is one way to help them.
Who should join Sorrowful Hearts?
That's easy! Everyone who feels called. Sorrowful Hearts are hearts united in prayer for children afflicted with unwanted same sex attraction, for all gay identified men and women, and for their families.
The Society consists of Christians, all willing to say at least one prayer every day for those on the Sorrowful Heart's Prayer List and for all homosexuals and gay identified persons.
Why should I pray?
The best reason is also the most compassionate. Homosexuals and those suffering unwanted SSA need your prayers. Many of the individuals here and on SSA Hope Prayer List have no one to pray for them. The sad fact is in many churches, the subject of homosexuality and same sex attraction are off-limits, or at least off the radar. People are ignorant of the facts of the origins of same-sex attraction. Many believe that gays and homosexuals have chosen to be gay and have the power to change. THEY DON'T, not without prayer, not without compassionate help, and certainly not without Christ! In the history of Christianity, Christians were always willing to help the missions. They were excited about spreading the Gospel to the four corners of the world. They prayed with zealous fervency for the souls of pagans who sadly did not know Christ. That same fervency is needed today to help homosexuals, gays, and all those who experience unwanted same sex attraction.
