Forgive me, for I have sinned 

An Israeli rabbi has invented a prayer to help Jews overcome the guilt of visiting pornographic websites.

The benediction by Shlomo Eliahu says: "Please God, help me cleanse the computer of viruses and evil photographs which disturb and ruin my work..., so that I shall be able to cleanse myself (of sin)."

Mr Eliahu said he had seen a marked increase in the number of men who had come to him to confess their internet sins.

The only problem I have is that I'd like to see the full prayer in transliterated version. However, I am ashamed to admit that my Hebrew education has failed me and I'm drowning in letters at the Yediot Aronot site looking for the originating story. Can someone help me out here?

EDIT, 5:00 PM EDT: Lizzie asks, rightfully, why I need this prayer so badly. Well....I have a confession to make.

Marc pointed me to this particular salient item.

So you better ask him.
