Declaring War on Weight Loss!

Sometimes when you’re trying to lose those pounds, you need more than will-power, checklists, discipline, and hard work. You need warfare!

A while back, looking for just this kind of help, I found a great prayer online that is powerful, and keeps me well-focused on my goals. It’s long, but by the end of the few minutes it takes to declare it, you’re ready to tackle anything!

Weight Loss Prayer

I declare in the Name of Jesus, that my body weighs a healthy, lean, energetic, vibrant, glowing, strong _______lbs. calling forth things that are not as though they are, in accordance with Romans 4:17. I command every cell to function in wholeness. Every bio-genetic curse of addiction is broken. My DNA is correct and functions in line with God’s word. (Every generational curse of obesity and all other curses affecting my weight and health are broken.

I command every spirit of gluttony, sugar addiction, over-indulgence, compulsion, addiction, craving, lack of self control, anxiety, depression, anger, unworthiness, deformity, unbelief, oppression, self hatred, hatred of my body, ugliness, rejection, rebellion, inconsistency, deception, failure, fear, intimidation, loneliness, addiction and all other connected and related spirits not of the Lord Jesus Christ to come out now in the name and by the Blood of Jesus Christ. You are not allowed to dwell in, around or attach to me in any way, shape, form or fashion. It is finished. Be gone, now.)

My body is whole and healthy. I eat healthy food. I exercise physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally on a level of maximum efficiency. I am not moved by what I see for faith is the substance of things hoped for but not yet seen. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I love and respect my body and call it holy as the Lord my God is holy.

My metabolism, blood sugar levels, respiratory, cardiovascular, glandular, reproductive, digestive, neuro-muscular, and all other systems of my body, and every cell and every organ function as they were created to function, in perfect harmony and balance. I walk in the wholeness of Jesus Christ. I have outward and inward beauty. The beauty of Christ radiates from my very presence. The Jesus that is in me is beautiful and the fragrance of the Lord follows me wherever I go. I am the bride of Christ, pure, spotless and blameless before Him.

The favor of the Lord rests upon me and is unconditionally abounding toward me in every situation and circumstance. Jesus has plans and a hope for my future, and I will fulfill every inch, every centimeter of what he has for me. Satan is bound from interfering with the divine path of destiny the Lord Jesus Christ has called me to. I will no longer let fear, intimidation, rejection or any other thing stand in my way. I run the race with a victor’s crown on my head and feet that are swift to reach the high calling God has placed upon my life. I walk on high places in the power of the Holy Spirit who resides big in me.

I am violently and forcefully taking back everything the enemy has stolen from me. All of Satan’s plans and assignments are canceled. I am fully equipped and equipping others in the art of warfare. The high praises of God are upon my lips. I stand with a two-edged sword in my hand slicing into and pushing back the forces of darkness. The weapons of my warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. I am sharpened as iron sharpens iron.

I have the mind of Christ and the thoughts, feelings and intentions of His heart. I take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ Jesus my Lord. Every fiery dart directed at my mind is quenched by the shield of faith. I do not entertain vain imaginations. I think only on glorious and lovely things. All God’s promises are yes and amen!(1)
