Dear Lord in Heaven; Hear my prayer.
Lord, I have become a victim of my own self indulgence - FOOD! When I sit down to eat a meal, it's always too much. I am ashamed to look at myself. I need your hand upon my mouth, to shut it when I feel the slightest fullness. Help me to stop over-eating. To consentrate on small portions, eating the right foods. Asking for your blessing before each meal/snack. To guide me to a more perfect body. Better eating habits and to encourge others to feel better about themselves; encouraging strength through prayer. I thank you Lord Jesus for all that I have; please help myself and others who truly want to lose this excess weight; to live a healther life; this gift of life that You have given each one of us.
Lord hear my prayer; in Jesus name, Amen.

Dear Lord, I'm not sure of their current situation, but You know Lord. Please protect DebbieDWK, and all those who want/need to lose weight, from harm. Strengthen their will and courage to face their everyday struggles. Show them Your love and comfort them. Pour out Your blessings on these people. Bless their finances so that they can afford to pay their bills, any medical treatments and enjoy life. Bless them in their employment and educational endeavours. Bless them with good friends, surround them with kind and encouraging people. Heal their bodies and minds of whatever ails them, make them well and healthy. Heal their bodies and minds from their obsession with food. Help us all to eat healthier and reasonable sized portions, and enjoy our meals without being greedy. Help us to express our emotions in a healthy manner, rather than stuffing food into our mouths. Help us to find ways of enjoying exercise. Thank you Lord. I pray this in Jesus' name, amen.

Hi Debbie, you said a lovely prayer. I have been overweight for about 25 years and have maybe 45kg to lose.
