But what should you pray for when trying to lose weight? Here are a few weight loss prayers you can read when you need help with eating and exercise.
Lord, please give me the strength to step on the scale in front of me. No matter what the scale says, help me continue on my weight loss journey. Grant me the energy to be active and make better food choices. Make my heart heavy with Your love but my body as light as an angel. Amen.
Lord, thank you for bringing this new diet into my life. This is the help I need to lose weight. I am tired of not seeing results and am ready to finally get my weight in order. Please give me the enthusiasm to continue this diet each day even when it is difficult. Amen.
Lord, I confess I gave into temptation and strayed off my new diet. Please forgive me. I know that I cannot do this alone. Please send an angel to walk with me on my weight loss journey so I may overcome any more obstacles I face. In your name I pray, Amen.
Lord, thank you for the amazing food you provide. I love your food so much that sometimes I overeat until my stomach hurts. I confess that I cannot do this on my own and I need your help. Please give me the strength to eat only as much as I need. Amen.
Lord, thank you for these beautiful clothes. I feel blessed today to find the outfit I was looking for in my size. Please support me today as I try on these clothes. Give me confidence when I look in the mirror to see the beautiful person you created. If these clothes do not fit, I will know that it was a sign from you that it was not meant to be. Amen.
