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,
