Are you looking for motivation to lose weight? Today's Devotional is based on this one question. Let's do some soul searching shall we?
How long do you want to be Overwhelmed, Confused and Doubtful about your health? We can go around in circles for years frustrated with our weight, looking at the numbers on the scale and trying to adjust the food we eat, but truth is we need to adjust our approach. We keep fixing our eyes on the food first instead of fixing our eyes on Jesus. Healing cannot take place by always looking the food, looking in the mirror and at the scale.
Why? Because we only scratch the surface of the problem. We have a hard time to control binge eating because we miss out on God's gift of wisdom. The eyes are stuck on the flesh and until we make a decision to seek after God in prayer we miss the opportunity of healing.

This is my prayer for christian women who want and need prayer to stop overeating and how to pray to control eating. I also talk about my love for the serenity prayer. I know some people rather read a blog article instead of watch a video, but if you choose to watch the video then, you will hear me as I sing my Holy Spirit Prayer over you and pray for the power of the Holy Spirit to be poured out upon you to release a new way of thinking about eating.

I really want to pray for you today if you need prayer for weight loss and prayer to avoid gaining weight after you found yourself overeating. I Thank God for his POWER - I would never be who I am today without God's healing mercy.
Today's prayer is for those who seem to be caught up on the roller coaster ride of extreme eating (see example) when I would binge eat and then workout really hard OR decide I would skip meals to avoid weight gain after overeating.
Mainly the feeling of being obsessed with food needs to diminish as we seek God in prayer. The more you spend time in HUMBLE prayer the more likely you will receive the fruit of the Holy Spirit when you talk to God about how much you long for self-control.
Prayer has been my number one means of healing to overcome sugar addiction. I Love Serenity Prayer - My special Prayer for Weight Loss has helped to stop overeating, to control eating because struggle is real and we all need motivation.
Hello and welcome to Conquer Cravings for Christians!
Some people don't know where to start to pray or even know what to ask for, so let this prayer be the beginning of knowing what to ask God for in faith.
This is how to pray to control eating. My prayer life has been my number one means of healing to overcome overeating and avoid gaining weight. We all know how horrible it is to lose weight and then beat ourselves up for overeating. Our transition is a process of progress. What we need to try to do is take our struggles to God and ask him to stabilize our eating behaviors.Truth is most of us don't know how to pray or what exactly what we should be praying for. So I hope this prayer will not only inspire you but will motivate you to pray more often.
I know this too well! You know about the challenge of social get togethers. Well temptation of food and overeating was and is always my BIGGEST CHALLENGE! It happened every time I got invited to go out to eat with friends because after all give me friends with delicious food and I want FUN!
While waiting for my meal, here comes the waitress and brings over that wonderful warm white bread in a basket and she places it on the table. We promise ourselves “JUST A SMALL PIECE” but then we give into eating the bread and eating way too much. Yup I found myself overeating even before the plate (entree’) was placed in front of me. The next day i’d tell myself, “that's OK I'll just work out an extra hour at the gym.” Yes, that’s right! So tomorrow I'm gonna hit the gym I'll just run 3 or 5 extra miles on the treadmill.
We need prayer Especially when there's a special event coming or Holiday coming or even when weekends come. You know how it is, we have that set thought (MINDSET) that we're going to do good all week and then when the weekend comes we sabotage it by overeating. Right? The mindset has to change. Truth is we have a way of telling ourselves we deserve it or we can always make up for the eating out of control another way.
That’s why a food plan and diet's don’t work. We need our mindset about food to change and learn the steps to take you there to break bad habits. We can then learn how to move our foods around, yes we just learn how to REARRANGE the food so we are not so vulnerable when we are in these types of social gatherings. I have so many ways to prepare and be on my guard and if I do by chance endure a "shortcoming. 2 COR 12: 9 And He has said to me: “My grace is sufficient (more than enough) for you. For My power is perfected in weakness”. Therefore most-gladly I will rather boast in my weaknesses in order that the power of Christ may dwell upon me.
(When we fall or stumble we can stand up and draw from God's strength)
Psalm 34:18 Look at how God responds to us when we realize how broken we are!“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted;
he rescues those whose spirits are crushed”
He doesn’t THROW US OUT when we are broken…He TAKES US IN!
We are never too broken, too bad, too lost, too wounded, too handicapped, too stained, too young, too old, too uneducated, too poor, too dirty, too weak, too alone, for God to use.
He DELIGHTS in doing extraordinary things through ordinary people because that helps His flame to spread even more…that helps more and more people to be attracted to HIM (and not merely to us) so that more and more people can have Him play His music, his songs of LOVE through them as well!
Does this seem impossible to you right now? It should not because God wants to lift your burden and bless you with good health. We just need to grow in faith and keep asking God and doing our part to change our focus. So, let’s change our focus in prayer. Pray with me won't you?
"In the name of Jesus,
I declare victory over you today that you will make a wise decision to protect yourself with food that God created with His own hands. I declare to you Oh Heavenly Father that you will fill our hearts, minds and tummy’s with your love and help us to stop overeating and control eating. Strengthen our minds, body and belief in you oh Heavenly King!"
THE SERENITY PRAYER:
I learned of the serenity prayer when I was a little girl at overeaters anonymous meetings and it has been such a big help for me to lose weight. The serenity prayer is a way to meditate where I can take the time for self examination and really look at what's going on in my life and the things that I have a hard time to accept. The serenity prayer helps me to get over temptation when I am willing to turn to God and ask him to give me the courage to change the things that I can.
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things we can and the wisdom to know the difference." (we pray this prayer to grow wise to make "WISE" choices)
The serenity prayer has been around for years and helps us to meditate on our need to examine WHY we overeat. It is the path that leads us to understand our need to control our eating. It's ok to accept that overeating is a form of food addiction and this habit can be broken with God's comfort, healing and guidance through prayer.

SERENITY PRAYER BIBLE ART Renee Dumont Art Collection
A PRAYER BASED ON BIBLE VERSES:
Dear Lord, Your word is truly a lamp unto our feet and a light upon our path. Help me know how to prepare myself to know what to eat and how to handle temptation from overeating at social events. Let not the enemy triumph over us, mentally, physically and emotionally about food.
Remember when two or more are gathered in the name of Jesus that He is in your midst. Through the serenity prayer I know that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit I will be giving you the directions on how to best prepare yourself so that you don't fall into overeating and the frustration of staying in that trap!
May God bless you with abundant joy and healing!
I would love to help you get your healing breakthrough.

The Serenity Prayer is not your typical prayer. The power within the prayer are the guided phrases of meditation to examine the difficulties you are being challenged with at this very moment. We know that overeating is not the root of our problem right?
Your problem is not food. It's what's eating you! Be it a tragedy that happened in the past, an ongoing hardship you are enduring or your worried about the future. This prayer is your road to healing the struggle of overeating. I believe this prayer is life changing...
I love the Serenity Prayer. I have made many mistakes as part of my growth and development and my relationship with God. *This prayer has helped me throughout my life even when I faced the challenges of overeating during my healing process.
I have to rely on God to help me make wise choices and keep going back to him in daily prayer for strength. My road to health is found in prayer...
Acceptance helps us see that we cannot blame others, or God for our feelings. Self-pity, excuses and frustration doesn’t help either. God does not want this for you and I. He longs to see us happy and living life to the full.
We want to make changes in how we eat to feel better in every possible way. I want to be able to enjoy walking, riding a bike or kayaking and the many things I loved doing as a kid. There’s a big world out there that is waiting to be a place of fun. Without health we can’t enjoy it. So I realize I need to keep going back to God when I start binge eating or overeating. Only God can reveal my weak spots and guide me in my weight loss and healthy eating journey.
When it comes to what we consume we need to accept that if we keep eating junk food and cupcakes, candy bars and ice cream full of sugar we will not lose the weight that we want to lose and then let our mind and emotions get out of whack again.
Changing the way we eat is not easy. Praying the Serenity Prayer has helped me to grow in my faith to change the things I can through the power of the Holy Spirit. By accepting the things I cannot change I can let go of tons of negative energy and let God be in control of my life. Everyday is a challenge and a "NEW BEGINNING".
