Prayers for Losing Weight


Many of us can feel overwhelmed by the ease that we have in putting on weight, or the difficulty we find in losing it. We often feel unnecessarily guilty in a society that does not recognise that each of us has different rates of metabolism and different types of genetic inheritance. Alongside this we are surrounded by a mixture of media influences that put unreal expectations upon us all. Food can then become a comfort and fill the spaces in our lives left by disappointment, loneliness or grief.

With God's love working deeply in our hearts we can begin to love ourselves again. We can allow this transformation in our lives to flow out of us, giving us strength, courage, and hope. Changing the way we view food and eating can release us into everything God desires us to be in our heart, mind, body and spirit.



Prayer for weight loss


Father,
Only you have journeyed closely besides me though my life,
Seeing the heartache I have felt as I have battled daily with my weight.
As I come before you now, please touch my body and correct the metabolism rate.
Bring restoration to my whole being, bringing new balance and wellbeing.
Cover me with love as I seek to cope with a poor self image. Help me to love myself.
Bring wisdom and truth to my mind, and help me to plan my daily food and to enjoy it.
Give me energy as I exercise more and become more fit,
And bless my efforts with sustainable weight loss.
Father, I long to be free of this difficulty in my life,
I look to you, you are my supporter, my comforter and my helper.
Thank you for your constant love.

Amen.
