5 Short, Powerful Versions of Prayer for Breakthrough. Bible verses included.
Many, if not all, of us have one or more moments in life when we need a new idea, a discovery, a minute of clarity. It may be related to a relationship, health, finances, school, work, or something personal or spiritual.
We may feel overwhelmed, as if we’re struggling, as though we’re at our limit, crippled by fear and anxiety.
When things don’t seem to be going well or we’re experiencing pain, we may just want to get out of the current circumstances.
However, God often uses painful situations to teach us. If we can change our perspective and start new habits, the current situation will most likely look a lot different.
It can be helpful to have something that reminds us of the many things we are thankful for – we can write out a “Thank You” list to God or fill out a Journal of Gratitude.
There are many instances in the Bible of fasting going along with praying, especially when the situation had great importance (for example, the story of Jesus casting a demon from a boy).
Fasting gives us an opportunity to be less distracted (we won’t be thinking about what we’re going to eat next) and more focused, to give our undivided attention to communing with our Father.
Use any (or all) of the versions of Prayer for Breakthrough below as a guide when spending time talking with your heavenly Father. Scriptures are also included. May your journey for success be blessed!
