Heavenly Father, I confess to You that I have become what can only be described as greedy and gluttonous and am ashamed that I have allowed my compulsive eating habit to become so out-of-control. I am so ashamed of my life and so sorry that I have allowed this obsession with food to take such control over my life - and it causes me much shame and heartache.
Forgive me I pray and help me Lord to break free from my over-eating. Help me to overcome this eating disorder I pray, for I know that without Your help and strength I will not be able to permanently break free.
I was reading the Bible Lord, and when I read that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, it made me realise that my gluttony has wider implications than I had realised, for it shows a shocking disrespect for You and for the body that You have given me.
Lord I know that Your grace is sufficient to for all my needs, and that Your strength is made perfect in my weakness.. and Lord my weakness has to do with eating too much food - but I do believe that Your grace is sufficient to help me though this.. and so I pray that You would give me the grace and help to me to break free this sinful habit of ungodly gluttony.
Thank You Lord for Your promises of sufficient grace and mercy to help in this time of need and I ask for Your daily guidance to overcome and strengthen my resolve to step away from over-eating into temperance and grace.
