Dear God Within Me,
I’ve spent years not appreciating and even disregarding the importance and value of my body. I used to be arrogant enough to think, “I am Spirit in action. My body isn’t as important.” I have been so wrong. My body is the vehicle through which my Spirit travels. My body is a vital and valuable instrument without which my Spirit could not have the experiences for growth that it has. My Spirit and my body are part of the same team. Please help me to forgive myself for the ways in which I dis-missed and abused my body. Please do whatever you must to change me so that I care for my body in the kindest and healthiest ways possible. Help me to remember what a gift my body is to me.
