Lord, I praise you because you are a God who redeems and restores what I have lost.
You help me overcome the challenges that have left me wounded and discouraged.
I am experiencing a lot of shame because of the things I have been through and I ask you to help me.
I have done things that have left me feeling ashamed about myself and it’s a horrible feeling.
You have said that if I trust you, I will not be ashamed (Psalm 22:5).
Remove the shame that has filled my heart and help me walk with my head held high.
Heal me from the things that make me carry shame in my heart. I know it is not your will for me to walk around with my head hanging low but to walk with confidence.
Where others want to put the blame on me for things I did not do, I will take refuge in you.
Hide me beneath your wings and protect me from the shame they want to bring upon me.
They will fail because you are my shield and protector.
Their plans will fail because they are evil and contrary to your word. They will never prevail over my life.
Instead of my shame, grant me a double portion of honor because you are my vindicator.
Where I have faced disgrace, give me everlasting joy.
Restore the confidence I lost and help me believe in myself again. I am your child and an heir of the good treasures of your Kingdom.
I will not fear shame or disgrace because you protect me and watch over my affairs.
May I not feel ashamed over the mistakes I made in my past because you have forgiven me.
You have cleansed me from unrighteousness and I am now a new creation.
The old has fallen away, and the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17).
My past is behind me and I can’t change it. I will allow no one to make me feel ashamed over anything I did.
I will focus on the present and on the new chapter of my life.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
