Prayer for Accountability
I can get lost in my head.
Trying to rely on myself for strength and to find answers as to why I make the choices that I do, makes me feel alone.
Even if people aren’t watching, would you like to be able to make choices that honor your health and be honest with yourself?
I know that I am human, and I can come up with a million excuses and reasons why I can eat or drink something at any given time.
On target one day, and slipping the next, trying to justify my reasons as to why it is ok. Then when it is all said and done, I could kick myself because of the disappointment in my choices.
I love to know that God is with me at every moment.
He sees all that we do, even when we think we are alone.
Because He is with us all the time, even when we are eating and we aren’t hungry, we can cry out to Him.
There is no reason why we need to do this weight loss journey on our own.
Accountability can come in so many forms, heavenly and earthly. Groups online, bible studies, texting a friend, and God is available at any moment of the day.
While it is nice to have someone here on earth to talk to and feel supported by, God can support and hold us accountable at all times.
What I have learned when I reach out to God, is He doesn’t tell me what I want to hear, He tells me what I need to hear.
That is true accountability.
Pray often for the strength to make choices that will support your health goals and weight loss. Surrender to God where you need accountability and support.
I will keep praying that I will be honest with myself and accountable, no matter if I am alone or with others.
One choice at a time gets us to our goal.
You can lose the weight.
Ask for God’s support with the accountability prayer below.
Prayer for Accountability
I am surrendering to you the denial I am in.
I realize that I need help. I need to be honest with myself.
In order to do that, I need admit that I need accountability.
There are many support groups out there that have accountability and connection, but I know that I need it from my Father too. In fact, you need to be my first thought for support.
The truth is, I know myself, I am weak, and I can give into my thoughts about food quickly.
I need your strength.
I need supernatural strength.
I need to be redirected and held accountable.
You know the desires of my heart and my behavior doesn’t reflect that.
I want to honor You and the healthy body you gave me.
I desire to feel better so I can live out this amazing life you have blessed me with.
I surrender Lord.
I am asking for help.
I know that only You can help me get through each moment, because I am too weak to be accountable to myself.
Thank you for my health.
Thank you for my blessings.
Thank you for listening to me about something as simple as the struggles of my weight loss journey.
In Your son’s name –
I believe in you.
