Eating Disorders

Holy God, Scripture says I am fearfully and wonderfully made, yet I have difficulty seeing beauty in this body of mine. Help me to see myself the way you see me. Guide me on this journey so that I may know healing and health throughout my life. Give me the grace to take one day at a time, and commit each thought and feeling to your care. Above all, lift me up with the support of people who love me, a faith that grounds me and hope in my Savior who believes in me. Amen.
