Supernatural Weight Loss Prayer

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,

    I do think that you can supernaturally lose weight… and have to disafree. I think that faith is more important and believing. Anyhow… I ask all that see this to pray for me!
    So here is what is going on with me. I was a constant 110 lb( a health and
    exercise nut) until I gained 20 pounds in a matter of a week, back in 2005, then
    gained 20 more while trying to lose the other 20. I went to the doctor and she
    thought I had a thyroid problem but everything tested ok. I could not loss it,
    no matter what I did.Then I married my husband and had Isabelle. I broke my leg
    8 months pregnant and was in a full leg cast, then a half cast, then a boot,
    then physical therapy for a very long time. The dr said I would walk with a limp
    the rest of my life and I have osteoporosis and arthritis in my leg. Which
    complicated working out. I was 180 when I had Isabelle and then got to a
    constant 196 after her. Then surprise, I had a bad flair up and ended up in the
    hospital. Turns out that I had Multiple Sclerosis, which explained so much…
    plus the sudden weight gain in 2005. I tried everything to lose it and the had
    minor successes but nothing miraculous.
    Then in the mist of a fianancal crisis, I get a letter from the insurance
    company. It states that I have to have a waist line of 35in or below by Feb 29th
    or I am considered to be a hidden health risk and our health insurance goes up
    $100/mo. We are barely able to afford groceries right now and can not afford to
    lose our 100/mo discount on insurance. It was great motivation… I developed a
    eating plan, work out routine and I stuck with it. This is what I have been
    doing: *exercise 20 min a day (alternative between walking and a specific band
    exercises for target problem areas), * Drink 8 glasses of water a day, *Eat 1200
    or less calories a day, *Eat less than 20 carbs a day, * No salt/sodium added to
    meal. I had my short term goal of a 35 in waist by Feb 20th for thr dr appt with
    ins. Then long term goal that allowed for slower weigh loss ck in dates 4/1,
    with a reward for Isabelle’s birthday cake and then again on 7/1.

    I was on target. Last Tuesday I measured 38 1/2 inches in the waist. I had
    lost about 19 inches all over body (I keep a log of what I eat, weekly
    measurements), I was down to 177 lbs, and praising God for my succeess. I just
    knew that I was going to lose the last 3 inches and everything was perfect. This
    past Saturday, I was at a stand still with the 39 in waist. Then Sunday I woke
    up and could not wear the pants that I had “gotten into again”. I felt “blah”
    and relaxed all day. Monday morning. I had gained it ALL back! I had my double
    chin again, the fat around my elbows, that was gone, back now, my wedding ring
    that I was able to wear again-once again doesnt fit, my thighs are touching
    again, and my stomach is measuring 44 inches. Now I have 9 inches to lose in a
    week!!! I was so close to my goal. I didnt do anything wrong. I donn’t
    understand. I have cried for 2 days. Hestitated to post about prayers but God
    seemed to want me to do it. I felt compelled to ask for help?!?! I want to speak
    faith over my “mountains” as Joel Osteen put it, but right now I am in a bad
    place. I was but no avail. GOd knows the desires of our hearts and he will grant
    them to his children according to his will…. I just cant image that it is
    God’s will for me to be miserable and struggling.
    Pray Matthew
    18:19 with me!
    Matt 18:19
    “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for,
    it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.”

    Wonderful father, I come to you now in the name of Jesus, asking you to help
    be overcome obesity. Show me what I need to do in order to defeat this adversary
    in my life. Thank you for the stripes of Jesus which are being healing to me as
    I pray. Heal my soul and my body of all causes and effects of obesity. You are
    the Lord that heals me.
    I will sing to you as long as I live. I will sing praise to you while I have
    my being. My meditation of you shall be sweet, and I shall be glad in you. Fill
    me afresh with the Holy Spirit, that I may experience His quickening power
    within me.
    It is my earnest desire, dear God, to walk after the spirit and not after the
    flesh. Therefore I ask you to help me control my appetite at all times. Let the
    fruit of the spirit, especially self-control, guide my every choice.
    Help me to resist and endure temptation. Thank you so much for your wonderful
    promise that you will be faithful to me and will provide a way for me to escape
    from temptation and his affliction. Through your grace I know both how to be
    abased, and I know how to be abound. Everywhere and in all things I am
    instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to be abound and to suffer
    need.
    Thank you for your instruction in my life, and thank you for your promise to
    meet my every need in Christ Jesus. I rejoice in his promise that I can do all
    things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I now clam that promise.
    Father, thank you for the gift of Joy. I realize that your joy is my strength
    in this battle against obesity. I now know that I am on the pathway to full
    recovery from obesity. Thank you again almighty father, in Jesus name I pray.

    #478 – Mountain Moving Faith
    info@joelosteen.com (Joel Osteen) 8/7/2011 12:00:00 AM
    Jesus said in Mark 11: “Whoever says to this mountain, be removed, and does
    not doubt in his heart, he will have whatever he says.” What does this mean?
    People of faith speak to their obstacles. There is incredible power released by
    God when we speak to our mountains. A mountain is a situation in your life that
    seems permanent and impossible. It may be a mountain in your marriage; you don’t
    see how you’ll stay together. A mountain in your finances; it doesn’t look like
    you’ll ever get out of debt or ever accomplish your dreams. Maybe it’s a
    mountain in your health. The experts have said that you’re never going to get
    well. It’s good to pray. It’s good to believe. It’s good to quote scriptures.
    But the mountains move when we speak to them in Jesus’ powerful name. Learn to
    say each day, “I speak favor over my finances. I speak health to my body. I
    speak peace into my family. I speak blessings into my future.” God wants you to
    be bold, and in faith, speak to your mountains! It’s time to say, “Mountain, be
    removed! You will not defeat me in Jesus’ name.

    Your response was a very good one, however, I have heard of people miraculously losing 30+ pounds at an alter call. I’ve heard of hundreds of people being instantly delivered from drugs, alcohol and nicotine. They did not need to have the knowledge before hand of a 12 step program or selecting a better lifestyle, although, that certainly followed (the better life style). I think it is important to know that according to scripture that ALL things are possible. I absolutely believe that the Holy Spirit can accomplish any miracle in a person’s life to the Glory of God!

    • Kim T says

      Hi April and Sandela5 – I appreciate your responses. To clarify the article, I didn’t say there isn’t a supernatural weight loss prayer or that supernatural weight loss isn’t possible; I just said I personally don’t know of a supernatural weight loss prayer nor have I seen supernatural weight loss occurring. In my own weight loss success story, God healed the issues that were causing me to eat excessively. As a result of that and a change in my eating, exercise habits I lost weight. During that process, I learned how to trust God and develop a closer relationship with Him. Based on that benefit alone, losing weight the old fashioned way was worth it.

  4. Andrea says

    I think we also need to remember what Jesus said about the blind man, that this was done to show God’s glory. Did any of us ever consider that we are being used to show God’s glory? What good is our lives if we can’t be happy with God and our selves if we’re fat? Does being thin really mean so much to us that we feel it is such a stumbling block to success?
    I am very happy in my walk with God, no matter what I look like. I know God has changed me from the inside out. If God never lets me lose one pound I will wait for the day that I get my new body in heaven. And I will still be happy. My joy or self worth does not come from what size clothes I wear, but what my Jesus did for me and that He chose me to be with Him eternally. To me, that goes deeper than anything.
    If we really think about it. We are unsatisfied with what God has made us to be. Not everyone struggles with their weight. But we do. God chose us to bear this burden. Now it’s up to us to decide what we will do about it. Will we waste our prayer time begging God to instantly make us thin? Or will we pray as Jesus did, not My will, but Your will be done Father.
    I have stuggled with the weight for most of my life, nothing has changed the way I look. And I think I know why. Because I am not showing God’s glory by being so dissatisfied with myself. God doesn’t want that for me. Jesus didn’t die for me to look in the mirror and be dissapointed with what I see. I think it really started turning around for me on day one of the 31 small steps plan when Kim suggested that we hug ourselves and state that we were fearfully and wonderfully made. That has changed my whole outlook on my body image. Now, whenever I feel down about myself, I do just that. I hold myself and look right at myself in the mirror and state, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Just the way I am.

    Thank you Father for teachine me such a valuable lesson. I no longer hate what I am and how I look. I now love myself and through that I am able to love You and my neighbor. I can see how satan has used this as a weapon against me and I have allowed it. NO LONGER! I trust You God and I know that Your will and plan is better than mine could ever be. I surrender my life to you, including my desires. Let Your Will Be Done. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

    • Kim T says

      Andrea – WOW. I could not have said this better myself. I would like to post this in my Facebook group page too because this is a message that none of us can hear often enough! Thank you.

    i hope my post won’t be misunderstood. “faith without works is dead” is a dangerous statement taken out of context. especially when the bible is full of miraculous healings of people who had no work to do or lifestyle changes to make to obtain it. they just had to have faith. there are such things as dead works. if works isn’t the result of the holy spirit working through you as a result of faith then our initiatives and lifestyle changes (work) are useless no matter how much you pray (just temporal successes that eventually lead to failure, hence yoyos). what the man needs to do is listen to what the spirit says alone. and the commend can be “don’t do anything and just have faith, ill heal you”, i’ve seen a woman on tv over ten years ago who was obese and lost weight supernaturally through prayer alone in a few days or weeks. she just melted away, no lifestyle changes needed. now it doesn’t mean eating junk food is right, im not condoining it because then you’re actively “killing yourself”, but all im saying is we don’t know what this man’s problem is, maybe it’s an illness, hormonal issues, maybe it’s stress, maybe its depression, maybe food is part of the problem or the entire problem but then again maybe not at all. in that case change or work will not do anything for him. there are ppl who eat healthy and are obese, people who eat junk food and are slim (they more likely have or will have other illnesses caused by the junk they eat). it’s important not to have that legalistic mindset, which is a mistake we all tend to make. all of us!! im not condemning the author, i think you do a great job spending so much time helping others and sharing the wisdom God has given you, and i understand where you’re coming from since you’ve never heard of or seen those miraculous weightlosses, but i just had to say this because i’ve made the mistake of being legalistic sometimes, and realized that what works for me won’t work for everyone, that’s why what this man is asking isn’t unrealistic. some people really have nothing to do to be freed from obesity or other things, instant healing is a reality. that’s what the miracles of the bible are all about. sometimes it doesn’t happen because that’s not God’s plan for us in a particular area of our lives (example : the author’s weightloss success was done gradually), but other times it’s only because we think of it as unrealistic (i.e. lack faith) and don’t ask it when it’s actually part of God’s plan for us in a particular area. God bless

    Hi. I did say the prayer from above to overcome obesity. I have been struggling with my weight since I was a teenager.
    My goal is to lose about 50 lbs. That would put me at 145.
    I would love for everyone to be an agreement with me in the same prayer……Amen

    Wonderful father, I come to you now in the name of Jesus, asking you to help be overcome obesity. Show me what I need to do in order to defeat this adversary in my life. Thank you for the stripes of Jesus which are being healing to me as I pray. Heal my soul and my body of all causes and effects of obesity. You are the Lord that heals me. I will sing to you as long as I live. I will sing praise to you while I have my being. My meditation of you shall be sweet, and I shall be glad in you. Fill me afresh with the Holy Spirit, that I may experience His quickening power within me. It is my earnest desire, dear God, to walk after the spirit and not after the flesh. Therefore I ask you to help me control my appetite at all times. Let the fruit of the spirit, especially self-control, guide my every choice. Help me to resist and endure temptation. Thank you so much for your wonderful promise that you will be faithful to me and will provide a way for me to escape from temptation and his affliction. Through your grace I know both how to be abased, and I know how to be abound. Everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to be abound and to suffer need. Thank you for your instruction in my life, and thank you for your promise to meet my every need in Christ Jesus. I rejoice in his promise that I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I now clam that promise. Father, thank you for the gift of Joy. I realize that your joy is my strength in this battle against obesity. I now know that I am on the pathway to full recovery from obesity. Thank you again almighty father, in Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    • Kim T says

      I agree with you in prayer – what a wonderful prayer, full of faith and grounded in the word. Since it is grounded in God’s word and His word is His will, then I know the answer to your prayer is “Yes” and “Amen”. Now, you have to listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit every day as He shows you how to bring the answer to your prayer from the Spiritual realm into reality. God bless you on this journey!

    Thankyou for that prayer i struggled whether i should ask for his help because it sounded to me as selfish. But through the scripture and this article i remembered that i can ask him for anything and he will listen and i’am called as one of god’s children to look after myself.

    god bless you kimberly

    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.

  9. Tammie says

    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.

  10. Greg says

    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.
