A prayer for Moderation Back to Prayer Categories
Lord, I need your help! You have set a bounteous table in front of me which I have enjoyed time and time again and for which I am grateful! But it seems I may have enjoyed this a little too much and my body is reflecting the bounty! Please help me to choose healthy foods, to know that I will be fully satisfied with smaller portions and give me the strength to resist overeating. Amen.
A Prayer to Lose Weight
Guide me lord, as I strive to lose weight. You are my light and my anchor, and with you I know all things are possible. Help me this day to make healthy choices and give me the strength to fight against destructive cravings that negatively effect my health.
You said, “The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed
As I bow before you today, raise me up help me towards my goals. I have been taught that anything that replaces God is an idol. Help me to reject any unhealthy habit in which I seek false comfort. For you are my one true comfort and salvation.
In your name I pray, Amen.

Dear Lord, as You prepared that breakfast for Your disciples upon the shore of Galilee,
so truly have You prepared this breakfast for us, your children.
We thank You for Your thought of us, so kind and so unceasing. We would go through all this day in thoughts of You. Help us to do an honest day's work that will make You proud.
In Your name. Amen!
