Lord, I know in my heart that my excessive weight gain is not honouring to You, and I have recently come to understand that because I am a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit of God actually lives within this body of mine! How wonderful to realise that my physical body is a temple of the Holy Spirit of God. How I praise You for this understanding. This is an awesome thought and I know that our bodies should honour the Lord in every way, in what we say and do, but also in what we eat and drink, for we are to do everything as unto the Lord.
Forgive me, Lord, that I have not been honouring to You, but have indulged in over-excessive eating, which I now realise is a form of idolatry, and this has shocked me. I know Lord, that many overweight people have thyroid problems and their weight in not their fault, but I confess that my weight is of my own doing. But I want to change my eating habits, not just so that I can look better, but more importantly that I may honour You with my whole body, soul and spirit
Thank You, that my body is a temple of the Spirit of God and help me I pray, to change my eating habits, so that I honour You in every part of my life. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ,
