Save Me From Gluttony

copyright Bob Hostetler

Abba, please save me from gluttony.
Let me say with my actions that my belly is not my god.
Teach me to eat for nourishment and enjoyment,
but not in a futile attempt to fulfill spiritual or emotional needs.

Control my eating today, Lord;
transform me physically by renewing me mentally and spiritually,
in Jesus' name, amen.

It's hard to worship when dealing with discomfort in my midsection! Further, it's hard to turn my eyes to heaven when I'm fixing my glaze on what's before me.
