I am about to get started making pralines and fudge today. Going to NOT eat any of them today. I plan to have one of each on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and that is it. I want to give myself the gift of good health and strength of body and mind this Christmas. I pray all of you are looking to the power of the Holy Spirit within you, to be victorious in every way, today! God bless you all!

I am posting some Scripture prayers I compiled from reading the Scriptures, in different sections of Joyce Meyer's book, The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word. These are the Scriptures from the Amplified Bible, but worded in prayer or declaration. The Word of God is powerful and sharp and able to divide joints and marrow and the thoughts and intentions of the heart. They have already built me up this morning and prepared me for the battle, in the kitchen, to come.

I have printed out and posted these on my refrigerator and plan to start memorizing 1 Cor. 6:12 right away and the rest throughout this new year. I also plan to keep a copy visible on my bathroom mirror and in my car and purse!

These Scriptures are not just for those wanting to be healthy in their eating and exercising plans, but also for those struggling with other issues, as well. Hope these bless you today!


I always exercise and discipline myself [mortifying my body, deadening my carnal affections, bodily appetites, and worldly desires, endeavoring in all respects] to have a clear (unshaken, blameless) conscience, void of offense toward God and toward men. Acts 24:16

I do not seek [by meditating and reasoning to inquire into] what I am to eat and what I am to drink; nor is my mind anxious [troubled, unsettled, excited, worried, and in suspense]. I only aim for and strive for and seek His Kingdom, and all these things shall be supplied to me also. Luke 12:29 and 31

Everything is permissible (allowable and lawful) for me; but not all things are helpful (good for me to do, expedient and profitable when considered with other things). Everything is lawful for me, but I will not become the slave of anything, or be brought under its power. 1 Cor. 6:12

In the day when I called, You answered me; and you strengthened me with strength (might and inflexibility to temptation) in my inner self. Psalm 138:3

I keep awake and watch and pray (constantly), that I may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Mark 14:38

I pray to God that I will not be overcome by temptation. Luke 22:40

I will be subject to God. I will resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from me. James 4:7

Blessed (happy, to be envied) am I when I'm patient under trial and stand up under temptation, for when I have stood the test and been approved, I will receive [the victor's] crown of life which God has promised to those who love Him. James 1:12

God is my refuge and strength (mighty and impenetrable to temptation), a very present and well-proved help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

My eyes wait for You (looking, watching and expecting) and You give me food in due season. You open Your hand and satisfy me with favor. Psalm 145:15-16

But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day! Habakkuk 2:3 (TLB)
