She wrote: “PRAYER TO OVERCOME FOOD ADDICTION:
“Food addiction is tough, I can almost P guarantee your will power will fail most times, I share with you one of my prayers when I can’t help myself.
“I am aware that not all my followers are Christians, infact I have some amazing Moslems and I love you all.
However my prayers are always as a Christian so you can adapt this anyhow that suits you. 🙏🏾
“Gracious Heavenly Father,
“I come to you in Jesus’ name, I am so thankful to be Your child. I am thankful that You have made me a new creation in You. Old things have passed away. Behold, new things have come!
“I command the spirit of food addiction to GO in Jesus name, never to return. I renounce the spirit of rebellion and self-will. Food is not my master, GOD is my Master!
“Pls Fill me up with Your Spirit, Lord. Fill me up to overflowing every day so that there is no room for food addiction in my life anymore. I speak healing to my body and my mind according to Your word.
“You said in Psalm 107:20 that You sent Your word to heal me and deliver me from destruction. I receive Your healing and deliverance in Jesus’ name!
“I will not use my liberty as a tool for addiction. You said, all things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful; all foods are lawful for me but I will not be brought under the power of food!
“I am excited that You are doing a new thing in my heart and mind. You are calling me to a healing journey and to become closer to You day by day as I walk out my healing.
“I need Your help to stay free, Lord. Open up my Spiritual eyes so that I can recognize the enemy’s lies. In the past, he has gotten me to believe lies about myself, live those lies as the truth, and follow his suggestion to eat brain-hijacking, sel sabotaging foods. All to make myself feel better from the emotional turmoil he created in the first place!
“I choose to be diligent to take every thought captive to the obedience of Jesus Christ. I will face the truth about the harm food addition is causing in my life. Give me wisdom to make straight paths for my feet to avoid stress and temptation.
Help me to keep my body pleasing, healthy and acceptable to YOU 🙏🏾
“Thank you Lord for victory.”
