Prayers for Weight Loss

An Unexplained Medical Causes Of Obesity

Dear Heavenly Father, You know that I have been gaining considerable weight recently, probably as a result of some medical reason. Lord, You know that the doctors think it may be connected with a hormone imbalance or even an overactive thyroid or chronic stress, but whatever the reason, I pray that You would give me the grace to control my weight and to reduce it to a normal level. Lord, whatever the cause of my unexplainable weight gain, I ask that in Your grace You would help me to overcome it and to address the root cause of my weight.

Father, You know that this has been causing me a lot of emotional pain and embarrassment, both at work and with my family. Please help me and heal me, I pray. Thank You, Lord, for listening to my prayer and for caring for the problems in the lives of all Your children. 

Thank You Father,


Prayer To Control My Weight Gain

Dear God, I am coming to You as I need Your help. I have tried to lose weight many times over but I find it so difficult to stop eating. Lord, I like to call it a little bit of ‘cuddly’ weight, but I know that in all honesty this should be labelled for what it is. It stems from gluttony.

Lord, I am ashamed that I cannot control my eating habits and it is becoming embarrassing to me. I believe that it is also developing into a health problem, as I am finding I have some breathing problems. Help me Lord I pray, to rid myself not just of the weight, but of the fixation I have for food.

Lord, I want to stop lying to myself and to You, and face this problem head on and call it what it is, an eating obsession. I have been critical of others in the past, who have had other forms of obsession, for which I ask Your forgiveness, but I want to face the truth in my own life and I am coming to You to ask Lord, to ask for Your guidance and help as I seek to break this evil habit in my life.

Thank You, Lord, for always being there for me.


Health Problems In An Overweight Friend

Dear Lord Jesus, I bring my dear friend to You, who has been such a good support throughout much of my Christian life, but Lord they have started to have some serious health problems that are related to obesity, and even find difficulty in walking and carrying out some of the simple, everyday tasks of life. I know that they would like to slim down, and indeed are trying, but as they get older and less mobile, the task of losing weight is becoming much harder for them.

I lift them up to You now, and ask that in Your grace You would minister to their need to lose weight. They know that their weight is not truly honouring to You, and so I pray that You would minister to their point of need, and if necessary give them a wake-up call to take more diligent care of their body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

You know that they have not only been a support to me in my Christian walk, but in the lives of many other people, but this excessive weight problem is putting serious limitations on their life and could result in them becoming immobile. In Your grace, minister into this need. I ask this in Jesus' name,


Keep Me From My Ungodly Worship Of Food

Lord, I know in my heart that my excessive weight gain is not honouring to You, and I have recently come to understand that because I am a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit of God actually lives within this body of mine! How wonderful to realise that my physical body is a temple of the Holy Spirit of God. How I praise You for this understanding. This is an awesome thought and I know that our bodies should honour the Lord in every way, in what we say and do, but also in what we eat and drink, for we are to do everything as unto the Lord.

Forgive me, Lord, that I have not been honouring to You, but have indulged in over-excessive eating, which I now realise is a form of idolatry, and this has shocked me. I know Lord, that many overweight people have thyroid problems and their weight in not their fault, but I confess that my weight is of my own doing. But I want to change my eating habits, not just so that I can look better, but more importantly that I may honour You with my whole body, soul and spirit

Thank You, that my body is a temple of the Spirit of God and help me I pray, to change my eating habits, so that I honour You in every part of my life. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ,



Prayed for 7 time. I Prayed For This
I thought weight loss would bring acceptance. I have been using food as a companion, friend, comforter. I am not more accepted being a normal weight than I was when I was 20-30 pound overweight. I do not know what I can do to be a normal person. I am not overly religious. I was made fun of my coworkers who were 20-30 feet way and telling me that I was speaking out scriptures. I am a very low volume speaking person..I would never speak scripture in front of coworkers to irriate them. The problem I was having was with being called a cougar or a older female trying to get a younger male. I was talking to myself not to other coworkers. I reported to a supervisor a male who called me MRS F, MR F was 16 years my junior. I was called worthless by a male supervisor. I have male coworkers who tell people about me without the person attempting to get to know me. As a result I do not tell coworkers personal information about me. The layoff took all the female workers except one on my shift. I am spoken about as not having any sense of humor. I am not given a chance to be myself. Food has been my friend, comfort. Can you please ask God for some type of accpetance as a human being. I am rired of all the negative perception about me. I have no control why I am perceived as being worthless or negative.
