Weight Loss with God’s Power is Possible

Have you ever felt like weight loss seems like an impossible task? I know I sure have. For much of my adult life, I was 100 pounds overweight.

I tried all the diets. I could lose weight, often as much as 40-50 pounds, but eventually the pounds would come back and I would end up heavier than ever. You can read my 100 pound weight loss story here, but let me assure you that it is absolutely possible to lose weight and keep it off.

Weight Loss Prayers – Losing Weight God’s Way

My weight loss journey involved a number of tools that helped me lose weight and keep it off the final time.

Here’s some of what was involved:

I’ve been maintaining my weight for 15+ years. It’s not easy, but it’s absolutely worth it and I have found a freedom with food that is a real miracle.

Today I run an online Christian weight loss program for women called Faithful Finish Lines. Come check us out! Together with my business partner Becky, who has also lost 100 pounds, we lead women through weight loss while keeping Christ at the center of your journey.

Below is a prayer I wrote for weight loss and I encourage you to pray it along with me today.

I know many of us are looking for that one miracle prayer that will solve our weight loss problems. I’m here to tell you it doesn’t exist! Instead, prayer for weight loss is a continual communication with God throughout each day.

Still, it’s helpful to have a guide and this prayer will give you that as you ask for God’s help to lose weight and approach weight loss Biblically.

Will you pray this prayer with me today?


A Prayer to Lose Weight

Here is a prayer to pray to God for help to lose weight.

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

Lord, I ask for your help with my weight, my food choices, and my health. So many times, I have given in to the sin of overeating. I’m sorry. Please forgive me and help me turn to a new, healthier way.

Thank you for your grace, mercy, and forgiveness. Help me walk in the new life you have given me and bring my weight to a healthy place. Guide my choices today.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
