Food Addicts Prayer for Weight Loss

Lord, forgive me, I have become addicted to food. I never thought this was possible but I have discovered that my excessive eating and obesity is simply a result of being addicted to food.

Lord I want to change my life and make it count for You and while I make food the god of my life, I know that You are not in Your rightful position. Thank You for bringing me to an understanding that my weight problem was much more than simply eating too much food, but has become a substitute for You in my life.

Lord I have no right to expect You to help me in this addiction – but I know that You are a gracious God Who forgives His children when they recognise their sin and confess their faults to YOU and turn from their wicked ways and place You back in Your rightful place.

I realise that during the time that I have made food the god in my life, my relationship with You has been suffering.. I now realise that I have been out of fellowship with You Lord, for a long time – but You are a gracious God, Who has promised that if Your children confess their sin – in the quietness of our heart, You are faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness – which places us back into a right relationship with You.

Thank You that I have restored my fellowship with You Father, by simply admitting my sin – help me now to overcome this weight problem I have – and I will give You all the praise and all the glory – in Jesus name I pray,

Amen
