Prayer is one of the most important aspects of any Christian faith. In fact, it’s essential to our relationship with God. The problem is that prayer can be difficult. It’s not easy for us to connect with God on an intimate level and sometimes when we try to do so in our minds, we’re met with a wall rather than a door opening up. That’s what this post is about: how you can break through that wall of silence into the living room where you have access to God himself!
How To Breakthrough In Prayer
1. Seek God first.
The Bible tells us to seek God first and he will make sure that we get what we need. It also says that God is a good father and will protect us, but only if we obey him and put him first.
This means that prayer isn’t just asking God for things, it’s submitting your life up to him completely so that he can take control of every aspect of your life from the things you say to the meals you eat.
When we pray, we must be willing to do whatever God says because he knows best and cares about us more than anyone else does.
2. Know that prayer can change things.
Prayer is a powerful way to change things. It can change things in the spiritual, physical, relational, emotional, and mental realms.
You have probably experienced this in your own life. I know I have seen firsthand how prayer has brought healing to my body and emotions when they were broken or felt broken. I have seen it bring healing to relationships when they were strained and difficult—even if those relationships are with people who aren’t Christians!
3. Know who you are in Jesus and that you have the authority to pray for others.
It’s important to know your identity in Christ, which means you understand the authority God has given you. In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus said that all believers have been given the gift of “authority on earth” and are “to go and make disciples of all nations.”
This means that if you’re a Christian, then you have the power to pray for others—and it will be effective!
You can’t pray effectively for anyone else if you don’t first accept this concept as truth in your own life. So accept it! And then start praying for others with confidence because God has given us this amazing ability through His Son (Romans 10:17).
4. Persevere in prayer.
- Persevere in prayer.
- Keep your eyes on Jesus, and pray in faith (Hebrews 12:1).
- Pray with persistence (Luke 18:1-8).
- Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
- Don’t give up! No matter how long it takes or how many times you fail at it, keep praying! If you pray without giving up on God and His Word, He will hear you – even if you never see any visible results from your prayers (Romans 8:26-27).
5. Pray God’s promises back to him.
Pray God’s promises back to him.
The Bible says, “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God” (Romans 8:28). When we pray this promise, it changes how we view our circumstances. If you are in a difficult situation, instead of focusing on how bad things are or how much more difficult they will be, focus on the truth that even when things look grim and feel hopeless, God is still good! He has promised that he is working everything out for your good! The problem with most people is they don’t believe this promise or they see their circumstances as proof that it isn’t true. However, if we pray this promise back to God and truly believe it ourselves then his power will come into our situations and make them better than anyone could have imagined possible!
6. Remember that what you focus on, you give power to.
If you want to break through in your prayer life, it’s important to remember that what you focus on, you give power to. So make sure that the things you focus on are positive and uplifting! You can do this by focusing on things like:
- God’s love and grace
- What it is that you want (if it’s a request for something specific)
- The commonalities between yourself and others (for example, if there is someone who is dealing with an illness similar to yours)
- What makes life good for people around the world. For instance, if someone is living in poverty or struggling with a certain issue that affects their lives drastically but not yours as much, try looking at all of the positives in their lives instead of focusing only on negative aspects such as those mentioned above.
7. Ask in faith and believe that you will receive your answer.
Ask in faith and believe that you will receive your answer. If you ask in faith, believing that God loves you and wants to give you the best, that He is listening to every word of your prayer, then it will be answered. Believe this is key to breakthroughs in prayer.
The bible says: “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see” (Hebrews 11:1). We can have confidence because God has promised us so much! He has given us His Word as well as His Spirit who lives within us (John 14:16). Faith comes by hearing or reading His promises (Romans 10:17), which are available to all who seek them out through scripture study and prayer.
When we come into agreement with His Word through studying it individually or together with other believers then our faith increases exponentially because now we know what God has already said about our situation or need! And once we know something it’s easy to act on it…to take action based on what we know instead of waiting around hoping against hope even though there are no real facts yet supporting those hopes being realized here on earth today!
It takes time sometimes but if we stick with our convictions then eventually breakthroughs happen—whether small ones at first after weeks go by without seeing any progress whatsoever due–or larger ones like healing from cancer after months pass without any improvement whatsoever due…but never give up hope friends; keep praying every day regardless whether things seem hopeless right now or not–because eventually these prayers will be answered one way or another!!
8. Be a person of prayer.
Prayer is a lifestyle, not just something you do when you need it. Prayer is a discipline, not just an event. It’s the way we live our lives – the core of who we are as believers and followers of Christ.
When we pray, we open ourselves up to God and allow Him to use us for His purposes in this world. If prayer was simply a list of things I could cross off once I got them done, that would be one thing – but it’s so much more than that! Prayer connects us with Jesus who is our Savior and Lord!
So if you want to break through in your prayer life or even start one at all (if you haven’t already) then this post will help guide you along the way!
9. Prayer is essential and powerful in every area of your life
Prayer is essential and powerful in every area of your life. It’s essential to your relationship with God, to your life and spiritual growth, spiritual maturity, spiritual health, and strength.
When you pray consistently and frequently, it changes you. You become more mindful of how much you need God; how dependent on Him you are for every breath that comes into your lungs; for every step that takes place under both feet; for every morsel of food that goes down into the stomach; for everything!
You begin to realize how vulnerable we are without Him — not just physically but emotionally as well because our emotions fluctuate with our circumstances which are affected by many things including other people (some who live in our homes).
You may be wondering why the title of this article is in all caps. Well, it’s because I want you to know that breakthroughs in prayer are possible! And they don’t just happen by accident.
Take time to pray and meditate on God’s Word daily. It may be as simple as reading a few verses before bedtime or even taking time out each day for silent meditation on His word. Don’t let distractions keep you from spending time with God through prayer and meditation!
