I love praying scripture! It is one of the tools God’s given us to fight the spiritual battles that you can be SURE will nail you this week.
Lord, may my spirit, soul and body be kept blameless until I see you. It’s such a tiring process but I know you are using this aging body of mine to sanctify me–to make me more like you–and although I don’t love it, I trust you. You are a God of peace and you alone will be the only way through this process so help me to cling to you and not any personal trainer, workout plan, or diet. (Although, thank you for providing such great resources to help me while on this earth!) Thank you for your promise to complete the good work in me that you started even BEFORE my physical body made it to this world. You are faithful and you are good. In Jesus name, Amen!
(1 Thessalonians 5:23-24, Psalm 139:16, Philippians 1:6)
