You undoubtedly came to check out this post about prayer for weight loss because you are currently on a weight loss journey or you have been combatting weight issues for some time. I welcome you and hope you find some peace, encouragement, hope, and love in the prayer for weight loss I’ve written for you.
Dieting is often a rollercoaster because there are so many factors that go into losing weight especially emotions – and oh boy do I know that. I am currently on my own weight loss journey, and I have learned a lot in my endeavor of dieting and seeking a healthy lifestyle.
One of my biggest lessons in all of this has been that I have surrendered to weight loss being a journey and a journey is just that, a journey. Sometimes we will have good days and others we will not. Dieting is hard because we have to eat. We can’t just quit eating! So we have to eat. What’s important are the foods we choose. I pray you choose well today. I pray that temptation does not win. Keep staying on the road, it is worth it!
It really is worth it, seeking after your goals and being able to stay on the course is the ultimate goal. I hope that prayer for weight loss brings a lot of encouragement for you on your own journey! I also have another great post that can help uplift you and equip you: Bible Verses For Help With Weight Loss And Dieting.
