Get a Quick Deliverance from Shame

In this special excerpt, Dan Duval shares insight on shame and leads a powerful prayer of deliverance.

Below are some notes from our Partners-only Monthly Mentoring Session. These sessions have been recorded and you can access them by becoming a Partner today! Find out more at 

Dan started out with this question: Is shame ever used in a redemptive context?

He mentioned that as we go through both the Old Testament and New Testament, we find that shame is referenced, and one of the things that God does is bring shame upon His enemies.

“Declare among the nations, Proclaim, and set up a standard; proclaim—do not conceal it—say, ‘Babylon is taken, Bel is shamed. Merodach is broken in pieces; Her idols are humiliated, her images are broken in pieces.’” Jeremiah 50:2 NKJV

God is not afraid to introduce the devil to shame. This is why Dan says we should make it our business to shame the devil. Our victory and ability to step into our identity (our ability to overcome) shames the devil. When we overcome with the power of the victory of Jesus, that shames all the devil’s operations, accusations and assignments against our lives. We should make that our lifestyle goal. 

When there is rebellion, there will be shame that is released. Dan referenced this verse:

Therefore behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you and forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and will cast you out of My presence. And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.’” Jeremiah 23:39–40 NKJV

In this context, it’s not really being used in any kind of redemptive process, it’s a judgment and a consequence. As we turn to Jesus, and as we are receiving forgiveness, engaging in repentance, laying down idols, surrendering those things of our past that hinder us, we receive redemption from past judgments or anchor points that the enemy has leveraged against us.

There are other contexts in which shame is mentioned throughout the New Testament.  Shame is humiliation. Look at what Paul says:

Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints? Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life? If then you have judgments concerning things pertaining to this life, do you appoint those who are least esteemed by the church to judge? I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you, not even one, who will be able to judge between his brethren? But brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers! 1 Corinthians 6:1–6 NKJV 

Paul is basically making this pronouncement to their shame. Why would Paul, the apostle of Jesus Christ, put shame on anybody? Good question! There are things that we do that bring shame upon ourselves and the house of God. 

Paul was not yoking them to bondage—to shame—he was pointing out what they were doing that was bringing shame upon them so they could repent. We can do things that bring shame upon us that we need to repent for.

We have interactions with shame because of past bondages. These are things we’ve walked through and bad choices we may be currently making. These things bring shame upon us.

When we turn from our wicked ways and turn to Jesus and His righteous standard, we come into deliverance from all of that.

Dan then focused on these verses:

Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore, in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs. Isaiah 61:7 NKJV

God has an agenda to deliver His people from shame and replace that with honor.

Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth. Isaiah 54:4–5 NKJV

That is the heart of God for our shame.

Dan then took our Partners into a healing and deliverance session. His words are below:

If anything I have said has triggered you and you think you might be carrying some shame, I’m going to pray for you.

Whatever has come up in you, all I want you to do is hold that before the Lord. We get the opportunity and the privilege of surrendering things that God does not want in our lives, and Jesus will help us to let it go and deliver us from every spirit in and around our environment that has been smashing us because of those things … and through that, hindering our lives, creating obstacles to the plans and purposes of God.

I want to invite everybody that’s ready to pray with me. Close your eyes and just take a moment to meditate with Jesus on what’s coming up. If you’re feeling emotion and you don’t know what that emotion is attached to, close your eyes and say, “Lord Jesus, what is it that You’re bringing to the surface? Just show me. Just show me.”

Today we’re going to let Him deliver us from shame.


Where have I broken agreement with Your heart for me? For my life? For those around me? Where have I accepted false labels? Embraced self-hatred? Taken an identity from failures or cycles of bondage instead of the heavenly identity and Your finished work? Just show me.
Father God, we come before You today in the mighty name of Jesus. We thank You that You are faithful, who promises. You are the healer. You are the deliverer. You are the Good Shepherd. It is written, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want, need or have lack of anything. You make me to lie down in green pastures. You lead me beside still waters. You restore my soul.”
We come before You today, Lord God, to confess hidden shame—shame that has been harbored in our hearts, in our subconscious, in our minds—shame about our performance, achievements … our bodies, our ability to walk in freedom, our intelligence—shame regarding things we’ve done in the past that weren’t right … shame that we are deriving from things we shouldn’t be doing now, holding us in cycles of behavior that do not please You …
We confess shame. And we repent, Lord God.
We repent because we do not need to be defined by shame. Shame must be dethroned in our lives. So, we change our thinking, and we renounce shame and serve it a bill of divorce.
Whatever it is that has been held forth in people’s hearts, we thank You, Jesus, that You are taking those hidden things of shame right now … because it is written, “Instead of your shame there shall be double honor.”
Therefore, Lord God, I declare that every evil spirit that has been at work in and around our lives as a result of the shame we have renounced … they are now being bound, pierced through, thrust out for judgment to wherever the Lord Jesus sends them.  
Lord God, I thank You that Your Holy Spirit takes opportunities to impart truth where there have been lies. Holy Spirit, show us Your perspective of who we are.
I thank you, Lord God, that we are washed today by the water of Your Word. Thank You for garments of righteousness, garments of praise, garments of salvation, and I thank You that this freedom is sealed everywhere Yahweh is. Amen.
