Prayer For Deliverance From Gluttony

Deliver me I pray from my over-eating, which I confess can only be called “gluttony”. Lord I know that this is a habit that I have allowed to develop in my life, which has almost become an obsession – and I pray that in Your grace You would enable me to break free from my eating compulsion and receive full and lasting deliverance.
 
Lord I have used food as a comfort and as a prop when I have felt alone and miserable, and it is causing my weight to increase which makes me more miserable and causes me to want to eat more – and Lord  I am in a bad state, and am asking for Your help in this.
 
I pray that in Your love and grace You would deliver me from this horrid cycle of comfort eating and help me to gain a healthy balance in what I eat.. so that I eat food in order to live rather then live in order to eat food.
 
Help me I pray to have the resolve to eat and drink wisely and in a manner that is honouring to You – for the Bible tells us that whether we eat or drink – we are to do everything to Your honour and glory. Help me to honour You in all I do and especially in my eating –this I  ask in Jesus name,
 
Amen
