Lord, We thank you for today and everyday! I come this day asking for prayer for everyone, even for our children, Lord dealing with obesity & chronic diseases. We ask in Your name, GOD to protect every area of our lives. We know, Lord we will have to put all our trust in You God, and allow healing to our flesh, and then to do what we need to do to overcome obesity & chronic diseases such as stroke, heart disease, cancer, asthma, arthritis, and COPD, to name few. Lord, Your have said in Your Word, “My child, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh” (Proverbs 4:20-22).
We know it is not an easy road, Lord as we take this journey one step at a time to be an example to our generation and to our children. They are our future. We pray that You touch us and them from head to toe, every vessel in our bodies, Lord! Destroy the extra that we are carrying, and is burdening us down. Work on us. Help us to love ourselves, and get in our Word as we listen carefully to Your voice, Lord! We ask for healing, deliverance, and for ways to move forward toward change and acceptance through spiritual guidance. Feed us, Lord through prayer! Help us, Lord through the eyes of a child that we be a great example of overcoming obesity & /or chronic disease so we will no longer be hungry for what has hindered us, or our children, or for what still haunts us, Lord!!!
As we come today asking you for full guidance on how to deal our health concerns, let us be examples to our children and others. Let our lights shine that we can glow with good health and change what has torn us to reclaim our lives back and the lives of our children! Lord as we start each day with our temple Lord heal it, deliver it, save it, destroy anything that is not right with it, cover it, protect it, feed it spiritually. We pray for letting go of regrets and personal shortfalls of obesity & chronic disease, LORD!! No longer bound... No chains holding us........ Leave obesity! Leave chronic disease! No weapon! No Weapon!!! Thank You, God for change is over coming me.........In Jesus name. Amen!
