Prayer for growing taller

by Mark White ()

I am a 21 year old male , my height is 5’3 (160 cm), my dad is 5’6 (168 cm), my mom is 5’1 (153 cm) . I have been constantly underweight ( 52 kg).

I had chronic diarrhea for about 4 years due to an untreated infection ( from when I was around 15 years old ) , I ONLY grew ONE CM in those 4 years; from 15 to 18 years old . I was barely eating and skipped most meals ,I had a complete loss of appetite and I didn’t feel hungry at all . I usually had one meal per day.

I didn’t seek medication until the condition became unbearable ( very painful with lots of diarrhea per day) in the fourth year of my disease .

I did a stool analysis and there was Entameba Histolytica with Undigested food .so I ate very little, had malabsorption and diarrhea.

I went to an endocrine doctor and he measured my wing span and said that my vertical height is 10 cm shorter than it should be for the right proportions. I did an X-ray on my knees and all my growth plates have fused which means that I won’t grow taller anymore. I wasn’t into sports or literally any physical activity ,was very very inactive through my teenage years, stayed in home playing video games all day.

So I was sitting on my chair all the time not doing any physical activity although I knew I was the shortest among my friends , I didn’t care back then and now, I regret not doing stretching exercises or trying to eat more . I truly think I stunted my growth with my horrible lifestyle , I am way shorter than my dad.

Can you please pray that God helps me get my lost height ? Can God even grant such a prayer after all my growth plates have fused? I only want an inch or two.

Can God increase my height?
