O Father Jehovah, please help me!
This gay Jehovah's Witness is suffering. He has a serious dilemma with his gay feelings and desires which totally conflict with Jehovah's standards. Few understand the agony a gay Jehovah's Witness is going through when day and night his imperfect, perverted flesh craves to be and calls out to be, satisfied. Does he need our help just like other Jehovah's Witnesses who are suffering and who need our help? Notice what the Bible admonishes each of us to do for those who are suffering.
1 Corinthians 12:26 - "If one member suffers, all the other members suffer with it.
Psalm 145:19 - "He satisfies the desire of those who fear him;
He hears their cry for help, and he rescues them."
Do we hear and listen to gay Jehovah's Witnesses' cry for help
just as Jehovah does, with the goal of rescuing them?
1 Thessalonians 5:14 - On the other hand, we urge you, brothers, ... speak consolingly to those who are depressed, support the weak, .... And at Acts 20:35 - "you must assist those who are weak."
Here is an awesome article that helps us know how to support the weak.

So when a gay Jehovah's Witness suffers, when he cries out for help,
when he's weak, when he's depressed,
what can we do for him, how can we help him,
how do we speak consolingly to him, how do we support him?
May this post help us to help gay Jehovah's Witnesses, to sincerely and lovingly support them.
Gay Jehovah's Witnesses often reach out for help, a listening ear, not to be judged, but to be understood, to be comforted, to be encouraged, to be reassured. They long for a confidant or even confidants.
Of the well-intentioned would-be comforters whom we reach out to and who do try to help us, we often find that the person is a bit homophobic or just doesn't know what to say. Or the well-intentioned would-be comforter reads us some Scriptures and tells us to pray. But, nothing changes. So when such well-intentioned would-be comforters do try to help, gay Jehovah's Witnesses are often left saying to themselves and to their well-intentioned would-be comforters, "You don't have a clue."
