Prayers > Prayer over one's stewardship of one's body

By Martin Cisneros

Father, in the Name of Lord Jesus, we seek You regarding the right way to exercise, feed, cleanse, heal, strengthen, rest, and beautify these physical bodies. We turn away from magazines, advertising of various kinds, our own carnal ideas and preferences, and we look to Your Holy Spirit for what eating, exercising, cleansing, rest, strengthening, and the renewing of our youth should look like and how it should be conducted in a century that's not like anything that anyone has ever lived in before. We look to everything the Word says about it after the resurrection of Lord Jesus and everything that doesn't pertain to the Mosaic law.


We look to Your Spirit for what is compassion indeed upon all flesh, for what's wisdom, for what's for the highest good of ourselves, of our planet, of the years that we will live, and we claim those resources that we need to be the strongest, leanest, purest, holiest, most gentle, most Christ-like, most enabled warriors this world has ever seen in it's history! We refuse to live unclean lives in what we turn to for strength, for recreation, for feeding, for cleansing, for rest, for health, and for longevity. We refuse to put poisons in these bodies, no matter what kind of shape these bodies are in.

 

We receive our healing from You, heavenly Father, and we claim the full work and merits of the Redeemer as the bases upon which we have life and that more abundantly, strength, joy, and passionate lives. We look to the 53rd chapter of Isaiah, the 103rd Psalm, Romans 8:11, and we look to our Mark 11:22-26 faith in You and at those things that You indicate are the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. We thank You that according to 2Peter chapter 1 that we have all things that pertain to life and godliness through Your grace, mercy, and peace that comes to us through the Gospel in abundance.

 

We thank You that Lord Jesus is the High Priest even of these physical bodies and He's our personal trainer where we've needed a personal trainer and we look to Your wisdom for how to be in the best shape of our lives. We obey Your Word about our attitudes and lifestyles and we forgive everyone that we've ever needed to forgive and we look to the quickening work of Your Holy Spirit rather than to the quickening work of caffeine. We spew the narcotic abomination of sugar far from us and we drink the water we've always talked about drinking, but have never actually drank! We receive Your kindness on the basis of Isaiah 54 and Ephesians 2.

 

We receive Your wisdom on the basis of 1Corinthians 1:30 and James chapter 1. We turn not from Your Word to the right or to the left, according to Colossians 3:12-17 and Proverbs 4 and we keep our feet out of evil. We thank You that we're cleansed, we're healed, we're strengthened, we're prosperous, and we've always got access to those spices, herbs, vegetables, nuts, grains, legumes, and water in abundance that we've needed to live healthy and strong lives and we repent of all of the ways in which we've abused our bodies and our minds with our diets, attitudes, and lifestyles in the past.

 

We are committed to living the Psalm 112 lifestyle of the rich and righteous in the Name of Lord Jesus, according to Romans 5:17 and Revelation 20:4. We thank You for showing us where our health and our lives are in all of the things that mankind calls food and for giving us the strength to make the decisions we've needed to make, to part with those things that weren't giving youth, health, strength, length of days, and long life. We pray for the food that we're putting into these bodies in the upcoming year, in the months and weeks ahead and we bless the ground that grows our crops and we look to You to lead us on where to eat, what to eat, where to buy it, and how to prepare it so that we don't minister further death to ourselves but walk in all of the fullness of quickening both by healthy natural means and by Your Spirit that's available to us each and every single hour of our lives.

 

We thank You in the Name of Jesus for setting a guard over our mouths and for not allowing us to put trash into our bodies any more. We thank You for healing our bodies and causing us to like what's best for us and to loathe those things we must put behind us and stop tormenting our bodies with, in the Name of Jesus! Amen!!

For the idols speak delusion; the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; they are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:2

 

Unless otherwise noted, Scripture quotations are from a solid Center Column Reference Study New King James Version Bible. Where Center Column Reference alternate renderings are preferred, they're not always noted on the site at the time of their usage in a given context, if there's a discrepancy between our quotation and a NKJV that our site's visitors use that's missing the Center Column Reference notes that provide more literal renderings, alternative Hebrew and Greek manuscript variations, etc. Sometimes an "Understood Subject" from the given chapter of the Bible or the particular book of the Bible (perhaps previous chapter) is given attention to while teaching. Reading (and rereading) each book of the Bible [in it's entirety] that's being quoted from in the midst of each subject is [always] greatly encouraged for added clarity! While we're [deeply] supportive of what's understood to be orthodox Christian doctrine on all matters, we're always looking for what God's ADDITIONALLY saying to us in each subject being taught.
