Prayer For Guilt
God, these tiny little prayers feel like cheating. Does that even count? Yes, I know they do. Help me combat these feelings of shame by speaking truth, by offering up these small prayers of surrender as I can and trusting they are enough. Give me freedom from the shame I am feeling. Help me fix my thoughts on you, not on my past, my failures or hurts. Give me eyes to see your goodness. Amen.
I have made You the Lord of my life by giving myself to You and committing to walk with You through my life. Because of the sacrifice of Your Son Jesus, I freely accept the forgiveness He died to give me. I have committed sins that deserve shame, yet I have repented, and I choose to receive the gift that cost Jesus His life: forgiveness and freedom.
I believe and declare that shame shall no longer be a part of my life. Jesus, the author and finisher of my faith, endured the cross, despising the shame so that I too, can reject and despise shame. I reject it now and despise it from this day forward by avoiding every thought of my past sin and simply thanking Jesus for His great love and sacrifice.
I believe and declare that my past sins are inaccessible to me and to Jesus, for He has removed them from me as far as the East is from the West. I could get on an airplane and travel for thousands of years, circling the globe, and never access my sin any longer, for God has placed it out of my reach. I thank You, Lord, for the freedom that gives me today.
I believe and declare that I have nothing to fear. I will not be ashamed or disgraced any longer. I will not dwell on my past sins, but will throw them into the sea of forgetfulness. I will not ruminate on my former reproachful life, but will focus on the Truth that Christ has set me free from shame!
I believe and declare that in place of the shame that has plagued my life to this day, God will give me honor, and not just honor, but double honor, according to His promise!
I renounce the hidden shameful acts I have committed; I have brought them into light through confession to Jesus and to trusted leaders and friends. I am walking now in complete transparency, nothing hidden. I commend myself to anyone's conscience that I am cleansed and made whole.
I believe and declare that there is therefore now no condemnation for me! I reject the thought that I am condemn-able, for Christ has made me acceptable to Himself!
I believe and declare that I am acceptable to God, to others, and to myself!
I take off the clothes and countenance of shame and put on the garments of righteousness and the countenance of joy and purity. No shame shall cover my face any longer. No spirit of shame shall dull my joy or hold me back. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.
That's me! I'm free indeed!
In Jesus' Name
Praise the Lord, I thank you that when fear attacks, you are with me
and give me the power to press on through and complete the mission.
Lord, I know that as you turn weakness into strength as our greatest
fears becomes our greatest blessings. Help me to trust you for a good
Dear Father, please help me. I pray for guidance that I make the right decisions, strength to get through each new day, forgiveness for my sins, and serenity. I know there are other people in this world with greater needs. I am so thankful for all that I have. Please Father, hear my prayer.
King David was known as "a man after God's own heart." David loved God, lived with passion and prayed with poetic and transparent honesty. But David was also a sinner. He stole the wife of one of his most loyal soldiers, conceived a child by her and then to cover his deceit, murdered the man. But once this crime was exposed by Nathan, the prophet, David turned again to God. His prayer asking for forgiveness is written in the Bible as Psalm 51. Here's a portion of that prayer.
O loving and kind God, have mercy. Have pity upon me and take away the awful stain of my transgressions. Oh, wash me, cleanse me from this guilt. Let me be pure again. For I admit my shameful deed-it haunts me day and night. It is against you and you alone I sinned and did this terrible thing. You saw it all, and your sentence against me is just. Create in me a new, clean heart, O God, filled with clean thoughts and right desires. Don't toss me aside, banished forever from your presence. Don't take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me again the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. (Psalm 51:1-12 TLB)
All of us need forgiveness. If something is separating you from God, repeat this ancient prayer. Jesus came to make the hope expressed in this prayer a reality for anyone who will ask!
Father God, I thank You that You have given Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for all my sins, past, present and future. Father, I draw near to You with a sincere heart in confidence, believing I have been cleansed from guilty conscience. My fertility challenges make me to feel as If I am wearing a cloak of shame, guilt, condemnation, but I choose to put on Your royal robe of righteousness. As I place my trust in You, knowing that I am Your child, I praise You; I will never be condemned or put to shame. In Jesus' name.
Father in the name of Jesus help me to overcome my feelings of guilt over past sins.I look to my past and lay it before you Lord. Nothing is hidden from you Father you see all and know all. From this point fourth I choose to not look back but to press on forward to what you have for me. I ask forgivness of past sins and move on. I am not perfect and I havent learned all I need to know yet, but I will keep working toward the day when I will be what you want me to be Lord. And regardless of my past I look forward to what lies ahead. I will not be moved by the feelings of guilt and comdemnation anymore.
In Jesus name Amen.
Today I pray for others who have not been able to forgive and feel a deep sense of guilt, to be cleansed by You Father.
I surrender all to You. Lord, I know that I have already been forgiven. I confess that my sins are washed away by the blood of Jesus. May I be led by the Holy Spirit and not be controlled by my emotions.
I declare that He is my Guide, my Comforter, my Deliverer, and as I read the Word and get a more meaningful understanding of it, God's truth will be clearly revealed to me.
These mercies I ask in the precious name of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ . SO BE IT AMEN AND AMEN!
