Add abstinence Prayer - thank you!


Abstinence Prayer of A Food Addict

God, today is a new day for me.
With you, it can be a day of abstinence
with you, I can handle anything

I ask for your protection in case
sometime during the day
my desire to eat compulsively
becomes stronger than my desire to abstain.

I ask for Your Protection today
from anyone or anything
that would interfere with my abstinence.
I know that I am powerless over food and
that my life can become unmanageable again.

I believe that you will relieve my compulsion
and restore me to sanity.
Please help me to know Your Will for me today
and give me the willingness to carry it out.

I turn my will and my life over to You.
Please guide me through another day of abstinence.
God, I need you.
