The ease with which we gain weight and the difficulty with which we lose it can leave many of us feeling helpless.
Because our culture doesn't recognize that everyone's metabolism and genetics are different, many of us carry around shame that isn't necessary.
At the same time, we are subjected to a cocktail of media influences that raise the bar beyond what is reasonable.
When we are feeling down, lonely, or grieving, food can become a comfort and help us through those difficult emotions.
Let the strength, courage, and hope that come from this inner shift shine forth from within.
God the Father, I'm coming to you today to ask for your assistance in losing weight. In the past, it has been challenging for me to lose weight; therefore, I need Your strength to stick to my food plan and exercise schedule.
Help me to keep my eyes on the prize and to experience improvements in my health. I pray for everyday assistance from You and success in this area of my life. Lord, we thank You! In the name of Jesus. Amen!
If I'm being completely honest, I have a hard time working out. I'm not naturally good at it. Please inspire me to work out, even if it's only a weight-training session or a stroll outside.
Help me make losing weight a priority in my life, which involves doing regular exercise. As I begin my new fitness regimen, my body will transform and feel stronger. In the name of Jesus. Amen!

Jesus, It has been challenging for me to maintain my health and lose weight. I need your help to get back on the horse and try again.
Please assist me in maintaining my focus on my weight loss objectives even when I want to give up or when I don't get results right away. Please give me the courage I need and the daily motivation to lose weight. In the name of Jesus. Amen!
Lord, I am beginning a new diet today to help me lose weight. I am concerned that I will falter or leave the group. Please give me the drive and resolve to follow through.
Give me the knowledge I need to know what to eat and what not to eat so I won't be tempted to eat unhealthy food. I know I can achieve a healthy weight with Your assistance, and I want to change for Your honor. I'm grateful for everything. In the name of Jesus. Amen!
Use this prayer: God, I beseech You to assist me in eliminating this excess weight safely and effectively, as it is damaging my health. I also require Your assistance to maintain a healthy weight once I reach my target. Help me make permanent changes to my lifestyle and health habits so I can get a healthy body and keep it that way. In the name of Jesus. Amen!
Yes, you can use this prayer: I do not wish to perceive good diet and exercise as punishments. I want to be a good steward of this body, so please allow me to seek out meals and activities that will nourish it... and truly enjoy them as a means of bringing you glory!
1 Peter 3:3-4 stated, "First and foremost, when it comes to weight loss, focus on the heart work involved. God has no interest in your physical type or clothing size. However, He cares profoundly about your heart, which includes submitting your dietary choices to Him and obeying Him."
Using a miracle prayer for weight loss is one of the effective ways to shed weight. As with many other tough aspects of life, prayer to God can make it easier to make beneficial life changes. Consistency is the most vital part of a prayer for weight loss.
You must pray daily, each morning, in order to keep your objectives in mind. With God's help, starting this conversation with Him every morning will give you the drive to make the daily changes to your diet and lifestyle that will improve your health.
