Lay Aside Every Weight

"Take Back Your Temple" is a Christian weight loss program for women, founded on prayers for losing weight that ask God for restoration of our bodies as His temple.  

Many Christian women try to lose excess weight with diets. However, the pounds often come back. Why? Because this is a Spiritual issue. A diet can never overcome emotional or binge eating to cope with painful life issues. But God can!

"No longer am I fighting myself and addiction to food..."

I want to thank you for Take Back Your Temple membership.  It has turned my attitude around.  No longer am I fighting myself and addiction to food.  I have asked God to take back His temple and rid me of bad eating habits.  This is not a gimmick; it is founded in respecting our bodies as God's temple."

"I wish I could shout to the mountaintop about Take Back Your Temple."

People in the body of Christ need to know about this program because it has been a blessing to me... just to hear my doctor say, "Whatever you're doing, keep on doing it."
I mean, to see my A1C, it was coming down anyway, because I was trying. But to see it come down from 7.9 to 6.3 and at one point, it was an 11...the doctor gave me a high five!
I'd never seen my doctor so excited as he looked at my blood work. He said to me, "What are you doing?"
I said, "I'm involved with this Christian-based weight loss program,
Take Back Your Temple and being transformed and changed." My doctor and staff were like, "We can see it!"

How do I ask God to help me lose weight?

Because God's way to change is inside-out, here is a sample weight loss prayer that focuses the heart and mind:

"Oh, Lord! I rejoice that your Word is forever settled in Heaven. I need your Word to settle my heart and mind so that I persevere on my weight loss journey until the end. I present my body to You as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable, and pleasing to you. Cleanse, restore, and revive me on this journey according to your Word. 

Let your will be done on this Earth, in this Earthen vessel, so that the excellence of your Power may be of you and not of me. Be glorified as I undertake this challenge. I want the thoughts that I think and the words that I speak to agree with what You said. And because it is your Word, it will not return to You Void, but it will prosper in the thing for which You sent it. I praise You for the changes in my mind and body to come. In Jesus' name, Amen."
