40 Powerful Prayer Points Against Shame And Disgrace – Today we are discussing shame and disgrace, their causes, and how to use prayer as a weapon to remove shame and disgrace from our life. Shame and humiliation are stated to occur when a person feels guilty for doing something wrong and is subsequently humiliated in front of the public or others. In the biblical context, shame and humiliation occur when the enemy brings up various charges and tribulations in order to deprive a believer of his or her redeeming dignity. Our redeeming dignity is what protects us from shame and humiliation, and the adversary is doing all in his power to deprive us of our dignity in Christ Jesus.
There is an ongoing warfare going on against the believer, and the devil and his emissaries are continually plotting and employing every method available to put the believer to shame and dishonor. They accomplish this by first suffering the believer with various evils and afflictions in order to drain him of all he possesses, including his family and wealth, and then shame and dishonor set in. The devil also takes use of our human mistakes to bring us humiliation and dishonor.
Shame and dishonor can come from the devil’s terrible afflictions, but they can also come from our human mistake, which includes, but is not limited to, sin and thoughtless decisions made by humans, such as Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, or King David who slept with Uriah’s wife. The Bible describes how God expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, and how King David lost his kingdom as a result of sin, if not for God’s kindness, which restored it to him. They were all overcome with humiliation and disgrace as a result of their misdeeds. I pray for you today that whatever humiliation and disgrace you are now experiencing as a result of your misdeeds be removed by God’s mercies, in Jesus’ name.
Pride is another source of humiliation and dishonor. Pride is a destroyer of destiny; it has destroyed so many lives and wonderful opportunities, and it brings humiliation and dishonor. “When pride comes, then comes humiliation,” the Bible says in Proverbs 11:2, “but with the lowly is understanding.” When a person’s spirit is elevated high and arrogant, and that person likes to position himself far above others and consider them as nothing, that person is doomed to shame and dishonor. King Uzziah is the epitome of what pride can do to a man’s life. He was a magnificent king who began well in the days of Zechariah the high priest, as described in 2 Chronicles 26, and his reign was tranquil until he was raised up in the spirit (pride) and he lost all, was afflicted with leprosy, all because of pride. “Pride goes before ruin, and an arrogant mind before fall,” says Proverbs 16:18. So it is better to remain humble in order to avoid the trap of humiliation and dishonor that pride brings. Disobedience is also a source of humiliation and dishonor. The Bible urges us in Deuteronomy 28:1 to obey God and we will be rewarded beyond measure, as well as the humiliation and dishonor we will face if we ignore his instructions. Disobedience is one way for a person to bring shame and humiliation upon himself. When King Saul violated the Lord’s word through the prophet Samuel, he experienced humiliation and disgrace. According to the Bible, obedience is preferable than sacrifice, and hearing is preferable to ram fat. Disobedience is rebellion, and anyone rebels against his leader will live in humiliation and dishonor. That was King Saul’s fate, and he finally lost his kingdom to David as a result of his disobedience. Trusting in a fellow man is another source of humiliation and disgrace; when we place our reliance in our fellow men, our shame and disgrace multiply. According to Jeremiah 17:5-6, “Thus declares the Lord; cursed be the one who relies in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart has turned away from the Lord.” For he will be like the scorching heat, and will not see when good arrives, but will dwell in the dry parts of the wilderness, in a salt land that is uninhabited.” Putting our reliance in another person will always result in embarrassment and dishonor since man’s assistance is unreliable and cannot be trusted. Our reliance and trust should be entirely on God. Isaiah 31: 1–3. “Woe to those who go down to Egypt for aid, and remain on horses, and rely in chariots, because they are numerous, and in horsemen, for they are numerous, but they look not unto the holy one of Israel, nor seek the Lord,” the Bible states. The Egyptians are now men, not God. And their horses are flesh, not spirit. When the Lord stretches forth his hand, both he who helps and he who is aided will fall, and they will all fall together.” Our whole trust and reliance should be placed in God. “Whosoever believeth in him shall not be ashamed,” says Romans 10:11. It is time to turn to God in order to avoid humiliation and dishonor.
As it did for the children of Israel, shame and dishonor prevent us from accessing our promised land. Before entering their promised country, Israel had to be cleansed of the humiliation and dishonor of Egypt. Joshua 5:9–10 We must also recognize that shame and dishonor are spiritual forces that must be addressed spiritually. On behalf of every believer, Jesus Christ was publicly discredited, reviled, rejected, battered, and mocked. He was spat on, stripped naked, and scourged in order to erase the mark of shame and disgrace and establish our independence from shame and disgrace. He was crucified to entirely deal with our shame and disgrace, bringing us honor and dignity and redeeming us from the spirit of shame and disgrace. Jesus Christ’s blood is a ransom for shame and humiliation. He bled that blood on the cross of Calvary so that everything related with shame and humiliation in our lives would be eliminated.
As Christians, we must accept this wholeheartedly and pray for him to remove the grip of shame and disgrace from our life in all areas. Below are some really helpful prayer topics to assist us participate in this area and get free of our shame and embarrassment.
