Tips for Prayers for Weight Loss

I always like to cover some tips when it comes to written prayers. Written prayers should always be used as an aid to help you pray. Never as a replacement to you communicating with God. And here are my tips when comes to praying for weight loss.

  • Tell God Your Heart – Weight loss is both a physical and emotional battle. It takes a lot of determination, and strength. Talk to the Lord about your struggles and what your heart needs. Be real with Him! He longs to hear from you.
  • Share Details – God wants to hear the details. If you struggle with sweets, discouragement, or staying focused. Share those things with Him. Another way to go about this by praying when you are feeling tempted to eat things you are not supposed too.
  • Continue Praying and Don’t Give Up – I think we all wish that weight loss was a quick fix. Diet for a few days and poof 25 pounds are gone. But sadly it isn’t always like that. If you are serious about losing weight then continue to pray and ask God for strength daily.
