Come Holy Spirit. bring me comfort in this time. help me to feel so loved and held and cherished. Hold my heart, lord. I feel weak. I feel vulnerable. I feel discouraged, but I know these feelings do not come from you.

Please, send down your Spirit of Courage that I may bear my crosses like you (specifically the cross of struggling with my food, weight and binge eating) so that I may overcome it by your Spirit of Courage, cultivating fortitude as I do this reflection.

Send down your spirit of understanding so that I may be enlightened to your eternal truth and your spirit of knowledge that I may know what you want me to know and learn from doing this reflection.

Finally, I ask you to send down your spirit of counsel so that this refelction is fruitful and you teach me what you want for me going forward so that I choose the surest way of pleasing you and gaining heaven.

Be with me now Lord.
