Dear Heavenly Father,
I want to change. Give me the wisdom, strength, and motivation to change. I don't like things the way they are. I have grown lazy and complacent and I have grown tired. Sadly, that is the problem. I have grown tired, but I have failed to grow in other areas.
I have gained weight. I have been afraid for so long I feel like I didn't know of anything else. I have gone nowhere and experienced life in years. I don't do much and I would like to do more. I wish, hope,and keep on wishing.
I pour out my complaint before You. I feel like I will never grow. I feel like never change. I am just so unmotivated yet hopeful. I am so good at procrastinating. I don't know how I change. I want to just eat the right kind of foods and exercise. I want to be thinner and not be so self-conscious. What is wrong with me?
Help me, Lord. Help me to change. I ask for a renewal of my mind. I ask for a change of heart. Help me to be the person that I mean, You want me to be. I felt like giving up sometimes. However, knowing that giving up will hurt me.
I want to know more about You. I don't want to be so anxiety-ridden anymore. I finally see myself differently from the persona that has bothered me for years now. I want to make it without her. I have gotten better but I realize that there is some ways to go. Lord, I ask for Your healing touch. I ask that You would make me whole.
In Jesus' name,
