Dear Father in Heaven, I come before You overwhelmed

by Dotty (Md.)

Dear Father in Heaven,

I come before You overwhelmed and very much overweight. I’m losing, if not have lost, hope that I can lose weight, get active and be healthy. Every time I begin to lose weight and feel physically better something happens! I either get stuck on what to cook, forgetting what I’d done thus far to lose weight, or getting so overwhelmed that I get fried and slowly revert back to the very ways that got me to this weight.
This last episode of dieting and actually losing weight came to a stop when I went through 2 rounds of Prednisone. I was hit with an insatiable desire for pasta and sugar. Father, I want You to be my only desire, forgive me for having desires that lead me away from You.
Help me I ask in the mighty name of Jesus, Your son my Savior and brother.
I need You, Your strength, guidance and wisdom. I know I can not do this on my own.
I want to glorify You in/with my body, Your Temple,
Love and thank You,
Your Beloved daughter,
