PRAYER FOR WEIGHT LOSS
This is my prayer for christian women who want and need prayer to stop overeating and 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.

Prayer has been my number one means of healing to overcome sugar addiction.
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. 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! I know about the challenge of resisting food I love to eat at social get togethers. Well this is where I struggled the most with 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, just give me my family and friends with delicious food all around me and I'll have FUN!
(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. BUT KNOW THIS! God needs you healthy and strong.
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!"

Another struggle of mine is going out to eat at a restaurant and when 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. I would try to promise myself “JUST A SMALL PIECE” but then I would 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. CRAZY! That crazy up and down merry-go-round.
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 need to learn how to REARRANGE the food and recondition our mind so we are not so vulnerable when we are in these types of social gatherings.
I have so many ways to prepare my mind because God has shown me over time and I can safely be on my guard. Life is not always perfect 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. We need to stay connected to the love of God and the power he wants to bless us with.
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 God to fill us with His peace and power. "Where there is peace there is POWER".
Some people don't know where to start to pray or even know what to ask for, so let these prayers 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.

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.
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 and my health coaching we are ready to give you directions on how to best prepare yourself so that you don't fall into the frustration of staying in that trap! May God bless you with abundant joy and healing!
