Praying for Breakthrough

Praying for Breakthrough

Is it just me or has it seemed like a bit of a rough year?

I have so many people who I’m praying for and together with right now. Praying to get unstuck. To get out of a cycle that seems like it has no end. Praying for marriages, jobs and financial situations to turn around. For health and healing. Praying for change - a miracle. Praying for a BREAKTHROUGH!

In Luke 5, fishermen were in their boats discouraged they hadn’t caught any fish all night. They cast their nets over the edge of the boat, brought them in, nothing. Cast their nets over the edge of the boat, brought them in, nothing. Again and again and again. Over and over and over. I’m sure after a night of fruitless endeavors they were about to breakdown and quit. But in the midst of their breakdown, that’s when our God of breakthroughs showed up.

“When he (Jesus) had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
- Luke 5:4-6 (NIV)

I don’t know about you, but I can sometimes relate to those fishermen – feeling like I’m in a rut. Fruitlessly trying again and again and again. Over and over and over. Ready to just give up. I'm so thankful that God can help us breakthrough in these times. If you’re in the middle of what seems like season of breakdown, won’t you pray to our God of breakthrough with me?

Dear Lord,
I love You dearly and hold Your promises close to my heart. I know You say this world will not be easy. We will fail and fail and fail. But I’m so grateful for Your mercies, forgiveness and most importantly hope.

Heavenly Father, I know so many people right now that feel like they are in need of change – a miracle. Things have been going the same way for so long, it feels like there’s no way to move forward. Lord, I pray for breakthrough.

- Breakthrough in marriages struggling repeated patterns of behavior that is unhealthy.
- Breakthrough for job security and confidence in knowing You have given us gifts to share with the world.
- Breakthrough for finances to come together so we can be even more generous with others, as You have been so generous with us.
- Breakthrough for rest, peace and joy after a tough season of what seems like living in survival mode.
- Breakthrough and perseverance to Not. Give. Up.

God, I know that in my seasons of breakdown, You can use me and those times for a breakthrough. Help me to cling to You and follow your guidance.
In Your name I pray,
