Affirmation to keep my weight down

Dear Lord, Thank You for giving me a wonderful and blissful life. However, Lord, I struggle in keeping my weight down.

My body is Your temple and it is where You dwell. Because of that, I want to keep it healthy and clean. Help me, Lord, to eat what is good and only what is right. Give me the strength to stay away from junk food and all the food that makes me body unhealthy. Give me the discipline to work out every day and keep the weight away.

This is all I ask, O Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Show Me the Path

Dear God,
I admit that I have come to both love
and hate the word “diet.”
On the one hand, it represents hope for change.
On the other, it’s like a sign flashing “Failure ahead!”
I don’t want to embark on another faulty plan, Lord.
I want to embark on a journey with You
that is led by You and depends on Your power.

I can do nothing on my own!
Show me the path that will enable me to change.
Show me, as only You can,
what works for me, what is healthy for me.

I want to think of this venture in positive terms, Lord–
not that I am signing up to be miserable or in want.
I want to learn to feed my body what it truly needs when it truly needs it.
And to feed my soul with the Bread of Life–You!
Today I place my future, my failures, my setbacks,
all of my hopes and plans into Your hands.
There alone will I find meaning
and true success in my life.

Prayer to Keep the Weight Down

Dear Lord, please strengthen me and keep me away from the temptation of eating unhealthy food. I know that they will not make me lose the weight I need nor will they make me healthy.

My body is Your temple and I should keep it clean. Grant me the strength to be able to focus on what my goal is: to lose weight.

This may seem like a shallow request, Lord but I really need Your strength to help me down this road. Help me remove all my unhealthy habits and stay on track of being a healthy being.

I am not doing this for my own good, Lord but for Your glory. I cast all my worries upon You, Lord, for You alone can help me in this journey of being healthy.

Be with me as I go through each day of becoming a healthier and better person. In Jesus’ most holy name, I pray. Amen.

Having a very judgemental society like we have today easily puts people down. Let it be in prayer through these weight loss affirmation prayers that we all find encouragement to be stronger each day.

Let all criticisms be a driving force to do better and fight harder.
