A Prayer For Your Child To Have A Desire To Remain Healthy

As parents, we all want our children to live healthy lives that honor God. The Bible teaches us to glorify God in all we do (1 Corinthians 10:31), present our bodies as a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1), and that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19).

Therefore, give him a desire to eat healthy food instead of junk food.

Teach him how to recognize the foods that will bring him life and help him avoid the ones that would harm his body.

Let him be discontented with foods that are harmful.

I rebuke all eating disorders and proclaim they will have no influence in his life, through the blood of Jesus.

In addition to eating healthy, direct him and show him the benefits of exercising.

May he enjoy living an active lifestyle and let him drink plenty of water.

Teach him to be full of Your Word and to rely on You to diminish stress in his life, especially during tough days.

Show him he’s accepted and loved by You and may he turn away from the false gods of the media and the world.
