Supernatural Weight Loss Prayer

September 23, 2011 by

I often receive emails for prayer to help others lose weight. But the other day, I received a unique request:

“Could I ask how do I pray an extremely powerful prayer with 100% unwavering faith to ask the “I AM” to have me lose 40 kgs of weight healthy, supernaturally and miraculously?”

I wasn’t sure if I understood the request correctly, so I wrote back:

“It sounds like you are looking for a prayer that will help you lose weight without you having to do or change anything with your eating or exercise. Is that correct?”

“Yes!” He answered.

Here was my response in part and I hope it helps you too today:

I applaud you for wanting to achieve a healthy weight. I know how to pray to God for wisdom concerning weight loss, but I do not know a prayer that will enable you to lose weight without you having to do anything. According to scripture, faith without works is dead (see James 2:14-18).

Even with the great miracles in the bible, action was required. For example, when God parted the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross, he still instructed Moses to raise his staff. Moses had to do something – act upon his faith.

However, I can give you a prayer so that you can ask God for wisdom on the right daily actions to take to lose weight. Here is that prayer:

 

Gracious heavenly Father, you have said in your word that if anyone lacks wisdom, all they need to do is ask and you will give them wisdom liberally and without reproach (James 1:5). I come to you in the name of Jesus asking for wisdom to take care of myself so that I may glorify you in my body and my spirit (1 Corinthians 6:20). Give me the desire to choose foods that bring energy and vitality to my body and clarity to my mind. Give me enthusiasm to exercise so that I may strengthen my body and have the energy to do the things I need to do. Most of all, Lord, give me wisdom to put you first in my life because You have said that if I seek first your kingdom and all its righteousness, my needs will be taken care of. Thank you, Father, for giving me the gift of abundant wisdom today. Amen.

 

Now that you are asking God for wisdom, consider the wisdom that he has already given you. That is a source of great wealth that can enrich your life immediately. Refusing to use it is like leaving money on the table.

Here is a sobering scripture to ponder: James 4:17 – “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.”

What good things do you already know to do that will help your body stay healthy? According to this scripture, you have a responsibility to do them. write down all the wisdom that you already have about health. Then ask God to help you put it into action – starting today.

Finally, I have outlined some daily actions in my free articles ‘Small Steps to Weight loss tips’.

My prayer for you today is that you put your faith into action every day. According to scripture, you will inherit the promises of God when you put faith and patience to work.

Be blessed in health, healing, and wholeness,

    Hi

    I quite understand why someone would ask for a prayer to help them lose weight. I struggled with being overweight for quite a long time. I was 89kg and exercised and tried many diets. Life is also very spiritual. Whilst the faith may be present our flesh definitely fights the will of the spirit. My advice to those who genuinely want to lose weight and have been doing all the right things to no avail; is to add fasting to the prayer so that you may be able to kill the flesh. What causes defeat in weight loss is not killing the flesh. As long as a believer has not made effort to crucify their flesh this task will be like a vicious cycle of weight loss then weight gain and so on. Permanent victory is gained by living in teh spirit always and ensuring that the flesh is subject to the spirit. I hope this makes sense. I am now weighing 79kg, meaning that I lost 10 kg so far. This was through crucifying the flesh. I still haven’t met my target of 70kg, but now that my flesh is tamed I know that it is possible!

    All the best.

    Hi,
    I have been stuggling on and off with my weigt for many years. I’m the bigget I have ever been, a 5’9 female, weighting 280 pounds. In fact, I know what to do, but don’t do it. Thank you for sharing James4:17 that has touched my heart. I didn’t realize I was in sin. Howeve,I repent this day and will go fourth doing all the things I know to do to be healty and drop the pounds. May god continue to bless you and yours. In Jesus Name.

    I think you make good points and I believe God would want to do things to maintain a healthy body and weight like eating properly and exercising. But what if the person does everything right and is still obese? Also, Jesus said ANYTHING is possible for him who believes and say to this mountain… With this in mind, it IS possible to command your ideal weight because again ANYTHING is possible. Just a thought… Of course, I know this has been done too.
