PRAYER ON THE SCALES

Lord, shrink my body or stretch my clothes.
Iíve gained more weight and heaven knows
Iíve tried on everything I own
And canít believe how much Iíve grown.

Lord, shrink my body or stretch my clothes.
I canít pull up these brand new hose.
Where did I get this extra weight?
Is being fat my awful fate?

Lord, shrink my body or stretch my clothes.
I bend and just canít reach my toes.
You know that Iíd be filled with glee
If you could melt some pounds off me.

Lord, shrink my body or stretch my clothes.
This dress right here is one I chose
To wear to church last Sunday night;
It must have shrunk and Iím a sight.

Lord, shrink my body or stretch my clothes.
I know the answer, I suppose.
To you my problems I can bring,
But melting FAT is not Your thing.





If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Not sure I enjoy the word "at" in the summary but I do enjoy the poem. I am taking this to a Weight Management class at my church today.

I think it's so interesting (and funny) that 449 people read this poem but only 2 left a comment. But I don't leave a comment on everything I read by a long shot so I understand. For those who read it and liked it and commented, I am grateful for the encouragement. God bless.

Our daily prayer - shrink my body, but it just doesn't happen the way we want it to, Mariane; altho having a leg removed did take off 43 pounds, I'd rather keep praying for another way. This is a cute poem, well written as are all your submissions. It's better to say "thank you" and not mean it, than to mean it and not say it. ...........Hart and Helen Dowd
