First off, I second KindGirl's beautiful sentiment. I do believe quite strongly in the efficacy of prayer.

I'd like to suggest Exposure and Response Prevention. It is an extremely well-tested and effective strategy for OCD, and is recommended as a primary treatment by the APA (both of them, I think) and the National Institute of Mental Health.

Two excellent books on this are "Brain Lock" by Jeffery Schwarz, and "Stop Obsessing!" by Edna Foa. You can also contact the American Association for Behavior Therapy (AABT) for referrals.

My best. I promise you that you can significantly improve. OCD is a nightmare, I know from personal experience. Fortunately, it is immensely treatable.
