dear DAB family – I find myself middle-aged and 150 pounds overweight. It’s like I’m carrying around another person. This is causing my health to deteriorate: arthritis, reduced mobility and daily pain. Please pray for a breakthrough for me. I have returned to my Christian counselor for professional help. I know and firmly believe that it is the Lord who can make all things new in my body. I want this weight gone for good. I’m not interested in any fad diet, although many people have suggested all kinds to me. Next year I will celebrate my 50 years of following God. I love Him so much!avjordan.83Prayers: 12Requests: 2

ABSOLUTELY PRAYING FOR YOU! Can totally relate!! I used to struggle with Bulimia. The Counseling you seek is your best way out as you share truths with him/her. As you both stay covered in prayer, I can see God walking this out with you. Line upon line, Precept upon precept! It will take time. Forget a fad diet. This is NOT what you struggle with. I am certain you have dieted before and yo-yo’d. It’s a common issue. This is coming from inside you. It’s NOT about will power! Let all that conflict go. I KNOW the Holy Spirit will show you how to stop hiding behind the weight, He will give you wisdom and revelation about your emotions (ugly, uncomfortable ones included) and lead you to the healthy place you want to be so that you can thrive while you’re here on earth!! There is NO condemnation. Keep going to counseling. God is already there for you!qamargaretPrayers: 182Requests: 6

Lord, we thank you for bringing us to the end of ourselves and yield to Your guidance and strength in understanding the needs of our bodies. Open the eyes of our hearts and bring us to embrace the body You have provided! Help us to heal any brokenness and to engage with food and exercise and beauty that surround us every day. Allow us to accept the imperfections and special needs manifested in life and to be gentle and loving in redirecting our habits towards those that honor You! Teach us every moment to chose love over critical judgements that are destroying our bodies. Help and strengthen us as we are weak and know not! Guide us. Lord! AmengsimoninPrayers: 577Requests: 7

Help me, Father, value myself enough to eat well and exercise daily. You know how completely opposite this idea is to what I was taught as a child and struggle to re-learn as an adult. It’s like every cell in my body fights what my mind knows to be true, good and godly in caring for myself. All I’ve been taught in childhood, and practiced in adulthood has been caring for others. Break this chain for me, Lord, for I have unsuccessful at breaking it myself. I want my body to glorify You. Right now, it’s doing everything opposite of that.janel.holadayPrayers: 944Requests: 101

Father, lifting up this person to You. Be glorified in them today. We cast our cares on You because You care for us. Moment by moment, help them to be led by Your Spirit and to honor You. Yes, let them care for their body by giving it food that nourishes and strengthens it. Let Your Word of Life heal and restore all that is broken, sick and hurting. You came to set the captives free!! YES!!! We are free in You. Let this fellow warrior stay in the battle and fight the good fight! I pray the armor of God would be put on so they can stand strong with You and see the victory!!! The victory is Yours- it’s already been won!! Glory!! Hallelujah!! Yes and Amen!! I pray in Jesus’ mighty Name. Amen!gsimoninPrayers: 577Requests: 7

Hurrah! I made it out the door, to the gym and swam for 45 minutes yesterday! I feel SO much better. Today I am planning on exercising at home with a video. Pray for me to be consistent with exercise. I don’t like exercise much, although swimming is nourishing for me. I’m an Accountant and am very consistent with work-related tasks. Just gotta learn how to do the same with taking care of myself. Thanks for all your prayers. I’m feeling the beginning of a breakthrough since I posted on this prayer wall.gsimoninPrayers: 577Requests: 7

Confession: I did not exercise yesterday. Instead, I chose to go on 2 outings with girlfriends whom I love very much. I need to find a way to exercise while I’m connecting with my girls. avjordan: you are SO right, I have been hiding behind the weight. I began hiding in childhood, trying to escape the beatings of my step-father. I continued hiding in adulthood to not have to deal with men making passes at me – even after I was married. I have been afraid my entire adult life of what would happen if I succeeded. I know that’s opposite of what many people fear. Failure and grief have been so much a part of my life, I don’t fear them. One thing I did succeed at was earning my Bachelor’s degree. It took me 19 years, one class a quarter. That one thing forever changed the way I saw myself and gave me more courage and personal value. I need to translate that determination and focus it on weight loss. Going to see my Christian counselor, Kit, today. Pray that he can help me move forward a big step today. Glory and honor to our Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ.janel.holadayPrayers: 944Requests: 101

Aww! Very happy to hear your good news! It is one step at a time and all the small choices we make that create the person we are and the person we become. You’re on your way!!
Father, lifting up this sister to You again. Encourage her and lead her by Your Holy Spirit. Let her be Spirit led and Spirit fed. Let her choose wisely who she serves each day. Let her adopt a healthy mind and lifestyle. Let her choose food/drinks that will nourish her body, mind and spirit. Let exercise become a way of life rather than a chore. Let her breathe in health and healing that You have already given her. Let her take hold of all You have given her and hold it with an open hand that she extends out to others and up in praise to You. Funny how all that sounds, but thank You, Lord, for giving me that picture in my mind. Let her rejoice in You each day and know that You fight for her. She can stand and walk with You into the victory that You’ve already won for her! Today, let her rejoice in what already is even though she may not see it yet. Increase her faith and let her walk by it and not by sight or feelings or thoughts. We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus! YES!! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen. Shalom, sister. It is well.gsimoninPrayers: 577Requests: 7

60 years ago my father disappeared from my life. I’ve spent the past 50 years in relationship with his parents, my grandparents, and his siblings, my aunts and uncles. They have blessed me so much! Now, they have all passed away. Just when I thought I was done, today I find myself grieving for him some more.gsimoninPrayers: 577Requests: 7

Grieving and crying – feeling the loss of my dear cousin, Ray, who passed in September. I’ve spent the past 45 years in relationship with my dad’s side of the family, of whom this is one of my many cousins. And I’ve made determined efforts to contact him, see him when I visited back East. When he died, no one let me know. I saw the information on Facebook. That hurt. I felt unwelcome to attend his funeral. I sent flowers from all the West Coast cousins. After talking to other cousins, in the end I decided to keep my prior travel arrangements and went to see and play with my grandsons in Southern California. Last week I dreamt about him, his passing, my saying goodbye to him – just typing this brings the tears again. And I’m hurt that he was not buried with the family, near his parents, but rather in a different cemetery a few miles away. Thanks for being a sounding board for me.

This is the day that the Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glad in it! Pray you’re doing the same gsimonin.
Sorry to hear about you missing your Dad and family. Life can be rough and not at all the way we wish it’d be. I always think about how blessed I am as a whole rather than to focus or give energy to the things I don’t feel blessed in. God is good! He is in control! His plans for me are good! I thank Him and praise Him for all He is and all He’s done, is doing and will do! YES!!! This world is not my home.
Father, lifting up gsimonin to You. You know. You see. You care. Into Your hands I commit her and this life You’ve blessed her with. May she give You all her hopes, fears, joys, pain and suffering…may she offer it all as a sacrifice of praise and entrust it all to You. You use it all for Your glory, her good and the good of many! You can do it and will do, I believe and so I thank You! You never waste a thing. Be glorified in her life. Let her cast all her cares on You because indeed, You care for her. Let her give You her extra weight and all things that weigh on her heart, spirit and mind. Holy Spirit lead her and let her follow You each day with healthy choices and ones that draw her closer to You and give honor to her body- Your temple. I totally get that, but too often that truth is all but forgotten and I’m off and running in the rat race or on auto-pilot, surviving- not thriving. Oh Jesus- my rescuer! You are the answer! I praise You! Today, this moment, I praise You for my suffering with allergy or cold symptoms and I thank You that it makes me more mindful of You and the bigger picture. Thank You that I can still pray for others. Thank You for answering prayer. Thank You for teaching my daughter that we ask and keep asking while believing that You answer and that we have received Your blessings and healing already, even though we may not see them or feel them (yet). You are at work. You are constantly interceding for us. Awesome!!! Let gsimonin feel Your peace and comfort today. I rest in You. I thank You for healing us! I bless You, Lord. You are wonderful!! In Your mighty Name I pray all this. Amen and Amen.

Praise: I went to the gym and exercised for 45 minutes on Monday. I plan to swim today.
I know all the personal pain in my life has made me who I am: a strong believer in Yeshua, a caring compassionate woman of God, one who listens, cries and celebrates with others. Sometimes when my heart is breaking, I wonder how much more our Father’s heart has broken because of our, of my sins and rebelliousness.
I know that He chose me long before I knew anything about Him. He chose and protected me – not from all pain, but from death. And I know He has had and continues to have plans for good for me. I am a grateful daughter of the King of the Universe.TiffanyPrayers: 58Requests: 16

I praise the Lord with you that he is giving you the strength to live your best life! Thank you Lord for your beautiful, precious, and valuable daughter. Help her to daily realize her identity and worth. You are taking her on another adventure of growth and maturity, please encourage her and let her feel your presence the whole way. Protect her from the enemy and remind her of why you have her on this path, because you love her and have great things for her! In Jesus Name, Amen.mkdwhittedPrayers: 31Requests: 8

Praise God for His tidbit of wisdom which came forth in my counseling appointment yesterday which is that for so much of my life various people have either refused to give me the option of making decisions for myself or attempted to do so. My choice was taken away.
Today, in Your holy name, Father, I regain my ability to choose, including choosing healthy food and healthy exercise. Retrain my mind towards these things.frankopoy68Prayers: 1045Requests: 12

My sister ,
Have you ever tried Apple Cider Vinegar. This has so MANY health benefits for you , it will amaze you. Please research and you will see that among the many things it does it also helps relieve so many pains / ailments.
God will help you as you keep doing your part in this journey of weight loss. You can do it and you will do it- just Purpose and ask the Holy Spirit to go through this journey with you.
He will correct you when he sees you getting off track.
May God REMOVE everything in you that makes you crave for that which is not good for your body.
May God set you completely free from the pain caused by all this.gsimoninPrayers: 577Requests: 7
