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 answer 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.

7 Quick Secrets of Prayer for Financial Breakthrough
Secret #1: God really does hear and answer prayer.
Yes, God answers prayer. As true believers in Christ, when we come through Him alone, our prayers are heard. Prayer is powerful, and prayer works!
1 John 5:14–15 “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.“
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.“
If you come to God the Father through Christ, then you are openly invited by Him, to offer your prayer for financial breakthrough, or for whatever else you need His help and mercy for.
We serve a living God that desires to bless those that belong to Him. Be assured that your prayers are heard by the Lord. He already knows your situation, and he already has the answer.
Secret #2: God doesn’t always answer the way you want Him to.
Well here is the kicker, right? Often times when Christians come to the Lord with a prayer for financial breakthrough, or anything else, they want God to answer THEIR way. If God’s plan, violates their expectations, then they don’t recognize it as God’s answer.
It is imperative that you understand this point. If you are praying for something, and asking the Lord to answer your prayer, then scripture teaches us that we have to pray “according to HIS will”. This matters because of the unity and agreement that we need with the Lord.
1 John 5:14 “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us:“
Praying according to His will means surrendering your own. God is not a puppet that can be controlled. He is not a genie in a lamp that is there to give you your three wishes. He is GOD.
If you are sincerely praying for a financial breakthrough, then you will truly want God’s will to be done in the situation. This is where things can get a little dicey for the Christian.
What if God’s answer is to let things play out according to the Spiritual Law of the Harvest?
The Spiritual Law of the Harvest is:
- You Reap What You Sow.
- You Reap Later Than You Sow.
- You Reap More Than You Sow.
So often our financial troubles are a result of our own bad financial behavior. How should God respond to that?
Are you a responsible steward of your finances? Are you a generous financial giver to the Lord through your local church? By the way, a generous giver means “beyond the average giver.”
A Quick Point About Tithing to Your Local Church –
Many times I have heard some Christians say something like, “well, tithing is not a New Testament Christian practice. Nowhere in the Bible do we see that Jesus or the disciples gave a tithe at all. So it’s not biblical“. Have you heard that?
So, what is the New Testament model and measure of giving? JESUS GAVE IT ALL, AND SO DID ALL OF HIS DISCIPLES! Financially, physically, spiritually….they literally gave it ALL!
So, if you are going to make an issue here, about tithing, and giving generously to the Lord, you might want to rethink your prayer for financial breakthrough.
God doesn’t always answer the way you want Him to. There are biblical financial factors that will always play into the situation, but we will have to save that for another article at another time.
Secret #3: The answer to your prayer might be internal.
1 Timothy 6:6–8 “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.”
Are you praying for a financial breakthrough because you aren’t truly content with where the Lord has you right now? Is it possible that this prayer might be for the wrong reasons?
(If you are going through an unexpected financial crisis that is no fault of your own, then this may not apply to you at this time.)
For everyone else, contentment is a HUGE factor in the Bible. What are we telling God when we aren’t content with what he is providing for us? That He is wrong? That He is making a mistake? That He is mistreating you?
Godliness with contentment is great gain. If the financial problems that you are experiencing are due to an internal discontentment, then the Lord may answer your prayer in an unconventional way.
Perhaps the remedy is to turn up the heat and let you sweat it out until you are purified of discontentment, covetousness, greed, and sense of entitlement. I’m not saying this is the case, but if the shoe fits you know the drill.
Secret #4: There may be deeper spiritual issues that are a higher priority.
Usually, a financial crisis will bring out whatever is inside of you. Like a tea bag that is put in hot water, financial pressure can reveal deeper spiritual issues. It can reveal issues of faith, dependence upon God, and self-sufficiency.
Deep spiritual issues can only be drawn out by hard trials that bring them to the surface.
Is it possible that you have been praying for God to do something else, like draw you closer to Him, or bring revival into your life? Perhaps this financial trouble is actually something that God sent your direction to answer those prayers.
If your financial crisis is revealing some deeper spiritual issues for you, or maybe for someone else in your family, then that might need to be dealt with as a priority, before this financial storm can pass.
There may be deeper spiritual issues that are a higher priority.
Secret #5: Sometimes the answer is no.
When you are praying for anything, the reality is that God can say yes, or God can say no. God is sovereign and will do His will, regardless of what we pray.
There are many reasons beyond our understanding that the Lord allows things to come into our lives.
We cannot always see those reasons, but we can trust God by faith. Right? In other words, the answer may be no, and we have to accept that.
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.“
There may simply be a purpose in all of your financial problems that you cannot see or identify. Have you been praying for God to have His will and way in your life? Is it possible that there are some great results that God is accomplishing, and this is the only way to get you there? Sure, that is a real possibility.
So when you are praying for a financial breakthrough, keep in mind that the breakthrough will happen if and when God is ready. Not when you pray hard enough, often enough, or serious enough.
Sometimes we are praying for God to calm the storm but should be praying for God to calm us, in the storm.
Secret #6: God loves a cheerful giver.
Have you ever noticed that cheerful givers always seem to have abundance? I’m not saying they are rich, but they always seem to have their needs met, and they tend to be the happiest people around.
Cheerful givers are biblical givers, and it is highly likely that God just trusts them with more abundance, because He knows what they will do with it.
Money does ruin people. Just as a financial crisis can reveal a lot about people, so can a sudden financial windfall. When all of a sudden they don’t need God anymore, they get on the party bus and head for sin city.
2 Corinthians 9:7 “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.“
The secret here is to bless someone else. When you are having a pity party, get your eyes on someone else’s problem, and see how you can bless them. Give!
Not all giving is financial. Yes, it holds true financially (and is the exact context of 2 Cor. 9:7) but you can give in other ways too. The key here is that you should do it cheerfully, and consistently. God sees right through insincerity.
No matter what situation you are in, you can decide to be a cheerful giver. Not only now, but from now on.
Secret #7: Pray hard, Work harder.
The idea of “waiting on the Lord” does not mean to sit and do nothing while God works it all out. The concept is that you live obediently to the Lord, and continue to do what you know is right, and trust the Lord to make a way when the time is right.
If you have found yourself in a self-made financial crisis, then there are several things that we recommend you do.
- Pray hard that the Lord will help you to change your bad financial habits.
- Work hard to change your situation, nobody else will do that for you.
- Educate yourself and make a plan to turn things around.
There is always hope! You are not trapped, there is always a way out. Many people in worse financial messes than you, have gone through it. Therefore, you are not alone.
Finally, the prayer for financial breakthrough goes much deeper than you may have thought before you read this article. However, it is our sincere hope that you have been helped by it, and want to encourage you, that it CAN be done.
- Secret #1: God really does hear and answer prayer.
