Anyone Anywhere
For Those Dealing with Eating Disorders

I know, more than anyone, the struggles facing those who have an eating disorder. Anorexia nervosa, bulemia nervosa, and compulsive over eating afflict so many people in not only America, but all over the world.

These young women and men need our prayers and our support to overcome this huge and debilitating obstacle in their lives. They need support from their friends to rebuild self esteem, from their families and medical professionals to rebuild their bodies, and from God, to rebuild their hearts. Anyone who has ever been afflicted knows how desperately hard it is to live with an eating disorder. For me, God and my friends were the only ones that could help me. I still struggle daily with the fight against anorexia, and I know many who are also fighting, . . . and for some they are not winning this battle. Bulemia and overeating are just as dangerous and devastating, and so we must, as an international community, pray for these people, that they might find strenght enough to get past the disease and onto their lives.

Lord above us HELP!!! I thought the nightmare had stopped...little did i know it came haunting me, my ugly desire to overeat is driving me insane because the more I eat, the more that comes out...I control it during the day but when afternoon comes i loose control. I'm hurting and I see that my only resort is to lend myself to the lord above and learn to love myself the way he created me. My sincere prayers are for the strong because I sure can't.
A lost case

I pray for everyone facing an eating disorder. We buried my 40 yr old cousin last week. She had been battling bulimia since she was a teenager. She was a beautiful popular girl. She left behind 3 children she loved dearly. If only she loved herself more and took better care of herself.

I am a 45 year old who has struggled with anorexia and bulimia for about 15 years. I have alwasy been an emotional eater. I currently attend a secular support group in my area. It is run by the nutrionist who I go to. She only allows her patients to attend. I want to pray for all of us who suffer from this deadly diesease. I try to get my strength from my Savior, Jesus. At times it is hard to do that. I also suffer from many other health problems. Fibromayalgia, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. I pray that all who suffer from any chronic illness may find strength through Our Heavenly Father. Amen

I lost my only daughter/child to Anorexia Nervosa 3 years ago. She was my best friend. She left behind her daughter Hannah who will be 5 this July. I miss her so much and I pray for all those who have an Eating Disorder, or those who have lost a loved one to this devestating illness.

Until we meet again,
Love MOM

Lord, you know me, you know how hard I have tried to overcome this, to have a normal relationship with food, but I can't, I simply can't...You know of all my unhealthy diets, the weight gained, lost and gained again, the uncertainty, the self loath, the insecurity... Lord, I beg of you, you know how hard it is for me to get by with all this weight, how hard it is for me to look in the mirror and see this image I loath... Lord I can't deal with this anymore, I can't do this anymore... My body is suffering, my soul is suffering too, to the point of desiring being anorexic instead of an overeater, if I must live with an eating disorder... Have mercy, my Lord, my Saviour, my only hope... in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ... Amen

If anyone is reading this, please pray for me... My life has been a neverending struggle with food and weight... from size 14, to size 5... to size 18... I can't do this anymore, I have a little girl and I don't want her to grow up with a mother with this unhealthy habits... I want to be thin, but healthy, normal...

O God, King of the Universe and Loving Father to Us All,

Please bless, in body and mind and spirit, all those with eating disorders, that they may live as long and full lives as possible, worry less about the body and more about the spirit; bless those who suffer debilitating hardships down to those with bad self-esteem or health problems in these ways. Bless all those involved in these and all cases, O Lord, and thank You for Your countless blessings, including the ways we can now treat these problems.

In Your Holy Name, Amen.

Father-Mother God -
Thanks for creating us in your image and for providing us with the most amazing body. Our bodies can laugh and cry, grow and run. Our bodies carry us from birth to death in this human sphere. Our bodies are temples for our in-dwelling spirit, that part of us that is always connected to you, precious Lord.
Father-there are many people crying out for help with the way they see themselves. Lift the blinders off of their eyes and let them see themselves as you see them, precious, perfect expressions of your creation. Let them remember that as children of God, we do not inherit disease, but can each claim perfect health and vitality. Our bodies were meant to be loved and cherished and treated with respect. Bless each person here with the wisdom to put it all in your hands, for through you, all things are possible.
Mother, we claim the promises that through you we can find peace and rest. Bless each of us in the name of the blessed holy spirit.
We claim the promise that if we pray believing, it is done.
And so we say thank you God, thank you God, thank you God. AMEN

The pressure in this world to be thin, and look like a model, or actress, its so hard, but they must remember the pictures are not real they are air brushed, do not let that influence you.

I would like to pray for everyone struggling with an eating disorder or body image issues, but especially for my friend Victoria. I think that she is in the beginning stages of anorexia, but she refuses to seek help. God, please help her to see that she has a problem and to seek help from those who love her. Help her in her time of need, and help her to treat her body, a most beautiful gift You have given her, with respect. Amen.
