Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a prayer against shame


You are the God of all things victorious. Of all things beautiful. Of all things compassionate and gracious. Of all things grace.

In our sin, we can feel shameful. We can be ashamed of all we have done against You. But Lord, You never intend to make us feel shame about ourselves. Thank you for giving us the Holy Spirit to convict us and make us aware of our guilt. But that is against what we've done, not who we are. So please, Father, convict us in our guilt. Help us to turn away from our sin. But help us to never feel ashamed of who we are. Because who we are is Your child. Your Son has given us his righteousness and so we are no longer merely sinners. We are victorious saints, standing in the truth of all that You have done.

Thank You, O Lord, for giving us this identity. This identity that we are Yours. So send away the shame! For we are forgiven and free through the power of Your name.

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.(Galatians 2:20)

In whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in him. (Ephesians 3:12)

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. (Galatians 3:26)
