Heavenly Father, you are the God of grace and forgiveness. There is now no condemnation for those in Christ, because Jesus did what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. He took away the reproach of our sin, like you rolled away the reproach of Egypt from your people at Gilgal. We live freely according to the Spirit, and we are no longer afraid, confounded nor disgraced. You called us to come out of darkness and into your marvelous light to live freely and boldly for Christ. All praise, glory and honor belong to you. I thank you for redeeming my past and making beauty out of its ashes. I lift my prayer in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen

“Fear not, for you will not be ashamed;
be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced;
for you will forget the shame of your youth,” (Isaiah 54:4 ESV)
