Prayer for Healing From Eating Disorders

Heavenly Father, I come before You today with a heavy heart and a troubled mind. I feel so defeated by my anxiety and consumed by my binge eating disorder. In this time of struggle, I turn to Your holy words for guidance:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, through prayer and petition, present your requests to God.” – Philippians 4:6 ESV.

Please help me find the strength and discipline to change my eating habits and to be patient with myself as it takes time. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit’s power that I may overcome the temptation of unhealthy foods when I am truly hungry.

Lord Jesus Christ, please heal my body, mind, and soul so that I can live a life free from this burden. May Your love cleanse me of these harmful thoughts and deliver me from a life controlled by fear.

In the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Deliverer. Amen.
