A prayer for the food addict
Monday, July 25, 2011
Help me to be a better person. I know what the right decisions are, but am too weak to make them. I fall back to my bad eating habits. God, help me to make those decisions. Give me the courage to try the foods that I do not like. Give me the taste for the foods that are good for me, and sicken my stomach to those which harm me.
Please, God, lead me in the direction for hope. Pull me along when I am struggling. Shove me forward when you feel I am capable. No matter what, God, don't leave me! I know that I cannot do this alone, but I trust that your presence in my life will encourage the initiative in me to change my life.
In Jesus' Holy Name,
