Weight loss prayers and Bible verses for weight loss to encourage and strengthen your soul and help you remember that the weight loss battle belongs to the Lord!

When you’re on a weight loss journey, sometimes it can feel overwhelming, lonely, and completely out of your hands. I can’t WILL (or make) the scale move down another pound, trim an inch off my thighs, or imagine myself into six-pack abs.

At those times, we can turn to the One Who can do “immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us ” (Eph. 3:20).

These weight loss prayers and Bible verses can help us turn our attention to the One Who made us and knows our bodies (and stubborn fat spots) better than we do ourselves.

He loves you. Just as you are. No matter what number is on the tag of your jeans.

And He also knows the desires of your heart– your dream skinny jeans, your longing to have the energy to create a life you love, and how you’re not sure how to get from where you are to where you can’t wait to be.

These 13 weight loss prayers can help. They’re based off of Bible verses to help us line our hearts up with the Truth of God’s Word. And the One Who made you knows exactly what you need to have the energy, strength, and endurance to do the work that He has called you to and prepared long in advance for you to do.

Curious how I stay healthy and fit? This is the eating plan that I follow (I lost all the baby weight in just 4 months while nursing) and this exercise program has helped me sculpt after 2 kids!
