Breakthrough Prayer and Scriptures

Are you looking for a breakthrough?  Waiting for something to happen that hasn’t happened in a long time?

God has a specific formula on how to get your breakthrough.  Why is it some people can pray prayers and things happen right away while others have to wait for such a long time for anything to happen?  We would like to share with you some scriptures and a step by step formula and prayer to step into your breakthrough for this year.

First, let’s look at some bible scriptures that give an outline for breakthrough and let’s look at some stories in the bible on how men and women of God have received exactly what they asked for in prayer.

1.  Confess your sins.  Repent.

There are some that think because we are Christians we don’t sin.  This is not truth.  We are still sinners and we sin just about everyday in our thoughts and deeds.  Some are sins of commission (we did something wrong) or sins of omission (we failed to do something that we should do) Therefore, we need to ask for forgiveness of our sin BEFORE we ask God to give us anything.  We have to make sure that there is nothing standing in the way of our prayers being answered.

Proverbs 28:13 (NIV)

Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper,
but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.”

Psalm 66:18-20 (NIV)

“If I had cherished sin in my heart,
the Lord would not have listened;
 but God has surely listened
and has heard my prayer.
Praise be to God,
who has not rejected my prayer
or withheld his love from me!”

2.  Make sure that what you are asking for is the will of God

God is not going to answer prayers that are not according to His will.  Find the scriptures in the bible that support your request and this will be the basis of your request.  God’s word is the truth and He is obligated to fulfill His word.

1 John 5:14-15 (NIV)

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.”

John 8:32 (NIV)

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

3.  Ask God to endow you with faith to believe

For the breakthrough to happen you must have faith that God will answer your prayer.

Acts 1:8 (NIV)

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

4.  Be Persistent.  This is the most important point.

Ask, Seek, Knock!  Ask, Seek, Knock!  Imagine that I walk up to a house and I Ask someone outside if “so and so” is inside the house, I received no ask-seek-knockanswer so my next step is to walk up to the house and Seek out the person so I may say “Hello, is “so and so” home?”.  Then I take it  a step further and I knock.  When you are knocking on a door, you knock until someone opens it.  The action of Knocking is repetitive.  Go ahead, start knocking on a door and you’ll see that it’s not knocking until you’ve done it several times.  No one goes up to a door, whispers, raps on it once and thinks that someone will answer.  Therefore, when you go to God in prayer…Ask, Seek, KNOCK.  Don’t get tired of asking…keep asking, keep seeking, keep knocking.  This is a continual motion.

Matthew 7:7-12 (NIV) Ask, Seek, Knock

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”

Here’s another story of persistence…

Luke 18:1-8 (NIV)
The Parable of the Persistent Widow

“Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’” And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”


And a story of faith and persistence in prayer

1 Kings 18:41-45 (NIV)

And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.” So Ahab went off to eat and drink, but Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees.

“Go and look toward the sea,” he told his servant. And he went up and looked.

“There is nothing there,” he said.

Seven times Elijah said, “Go back.”

The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.”

So Elijah said, “Go and tell Ahab, ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.’”

Meanwhile, the sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose, a heavy rain started falling and Ahab rode off to Jezreel.


We trust that this formula will help you to receive the breakthrough that you have been waiting for.

Here’s a prayer for your breakthrough

Most High God, I come before you covered under the blood of Jesus and I thank you for the forgiveness that He has imparted to me by dying for my sins.  Forgive me of my iniquities and specifically for the sin of _________________________.  I pray that you will give me the grace to continue to walk in truth and not fall into that sin again.  I pray that you would bind the hand of the enemy so that I will not be tempted in this area again but I know that if he comes again you will provide a way for me to escape the temptation.  Give me the heart and mind of Christ to love You as You have loved me.  I pray that  you would give me the faith to believe for the breakthrough in the area of __________________.  You know how long I have waited for this.  Forgive me for  my sin of unbelief.  Speak to my heart and show me if this is Your will.  I know you are obligated to fulfill Your word.  You are not a man that you should lie or the son of a man that you need to repent. I know Your word and Your promises are Yes and Amen.  I can rely on Your immutability and on the answer to this prayer.  Bring scriptures to my heart and mind that I can use to stand on your promises and receive my breakthrough.  Most of all God grant me a persistent heart that I can continue to Ask, Seek & Knock until you open that door.  Thank you for creating this opportunity where I have to bow my knee to your power and trust You.  I ask all of these things in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

When you get the scriptures that are specifically targeting your need, speak them daily and watch what the Lord will do!

  2. I pray this prayer as I sit in court waiting for the Judge to grant an Ex Parte request that I filed. The scripture that came to mind was “Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.” I’m standing, believing, and trusting. It is currently 2:39 p.m. I will update with good news shortly. 🙏🏾

    1. 07/13/2020 – Update: The judge denied the ex parte request but I have to appear in court again on 07.21.20. *Sigh* This has been a long, uphill battle but I continue to ask, seek, and knock.

  3. I have accepted Jesus Christ as my best friend, teacher, brother, friend, cousin, uncle, heavenly father, Lord and personal saviour. I love God very much, He loves me too. I won’t sin against God anymore in my life, my body is the temple of God. I will not let the holy spirit grieve, become sad and unhappy. I won’t watch porn videos anymore and even type porn videos. God has changed my life for the better.

I lost my job in December and my boyfriend left me in April without a valid reason, he just started acting weird, didn’t want to talk to me. He blocked me from his life. Love just turned into hate. It’s hard for me to accept this as I keep on thinking that there’s a force of some kind controlling him. I need him back in my life and I need a job as well. I have been applying for months but no luck, not even an interview.
    I pray in the morning and at night before I sleep but I feel like I need help.
