Blessed Trinity, I beg You, deliver me from Gluttony in all its forms and grant me the freedom and joy of Temperance, Lord, hear my prayer.

Rather than being enslaved by overeating and a finicky desire for gourmet or specific foods or drinks, help me desire to eat simple and nutritious foods in sufficient quantity necessary to preserve my health… 

Rather than accepting an unhealthy amount of body fat, strengthen and guide me to change my diet and exercise habits to achieve the healthy body You desire me to have…

Rather than drinking too much or consuming any substance which impairs my mind or body, help me to be moderate if I choose to drink alcohol and abstain from all substances which damage my health…

Rather than being brainwashed, perverted, monetized and addicted by modern media, grant me the strength to abstain or strictly limit my use of media to that which is uplifting, useful, wholesome and serves You…

Rather than keeping irregular hours, failing to get sufficient sleep or getting too much sleep, help me to develop a healthy routine of sufficient daily sleep and to set aside the Sabbath for rest and renewal…

Rather than becoming obsessed with the selfish pursuit of pleasure and escapism in exercise, hobbies, sports, travel, gambling, or other experiences, inspire me to be moderate and balanced in the enjoyment of pastimes…

Rather than failing to spend time in Creation or pursuing thrill-seeking and dangerous activities in nature, help me to regularly enjoy God’s beautiful Creation by myself and with others…

Blessed Trinity, I desperately need the Gift of the Fear of the Lord so I may battle against Gluttony in all its forms and grow in Temperance.

I beg for the freedom and joy of Temperance, in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Savior of Man. Amen.
