Breakthrough Prayer

Here is a


Breakthrough Prayer


that will Transform your life!

Revelation + Motivation = Transformation



What should you do in hard times?

How should you pray?

Everybody has hard times.

Every one of us will have seasons in our life where we feel discouraged and confused.

While driving down the road of life, all of us will end up in a cul-de-sac  or at a dead - end street … at times.  

If that hasn’t happened to you – it will.

It is a part of life.

I have learned that even though I am stopped at a cul-de-sac or a
dead - end street, God can supernaturally create a way out.

My way out may come suddenly or gradually.

What Should I Do?

What do you do when you are stopped
and have no where to go?   

 What do you do when your whole world
has fallen a part.

What do you do when you feel

so confused,

discouraged, and exhausted that

despair and


begin to envelop you.

Prayer is one of the answers.

How I found out about
Breakthrough Prayer

Once when I was


discouragement and despair,

I went to God in prayer and said,

“Lord, I feel so confused that I don’t know
anything about anything.

All I know is that Jesus Christ loves me and he died for me.

That is all I know.

Everything in my life seems to be a jumbled mess.
I don’t know what is up or down.

I don’t know what is the right thing to do or the wrong thing to do.

Lord, I don’t even know how to pray.

Help me.”

Within a week, the Lord gave me

the pattern

that I needed for my prayers.

Here is the pattern:

Revelation + Motivation = Transformation.

As I pondered this pattern, I began to understand many things.

Revelation is the first word in the pattern.

The revelation part of the pattern stands for the fact that I need to hear from God. I need to know what God’s will is…. for my situation.  I need the Bible to speak to me about my situation. I need confusion to lift and mental clarity to be operating in me.

Therefore, the first thing I need to do is pray for revelation.

Most of my revelation will come from the Bible. So I need to spend time reading the Bible.


When God gives you revelation, 

you get wisdom.

Then you know what God wants  you to do.   

When you get revelation, you are getting godly information.

But gaining revelation isn’t enough.

Sometimes life has hit us so hard

that even when we have the information

about what we need to do

and where we need to go,

we don’t have the motivation

to do anything about it.

Revelation isn’t enough.

We also need


Motivation includes physical motivation. I need physical motivation for my body in order to accomplish God’s will. I need to possess physical energy, strength, stamina, and endurance to do God’s Will.

I need mental motivation – I need to think motivating thoughts that stir me up to get active.

I need to think inspiring thoughts about my situation. For example,  I get motivated as I think about Philippians 4:13.  It says……“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” That is an inspiring thought that motivates to action.

The next type of motivation that I need is emotional motivation. I need godly emotions. I not only need the mind of Christ but I need the emotions of Christ.

Thinking the right thoughts does have a positive affect on our emotions. Yet  sometimes our emotions just seem to spring up and go in the opposite direction from our thoughts.

So I do not only need physical motivation and mental motivation, I also need emotional motivation – I need God’s help to stir up right emotions such as – hope, enthusiasm, and optimism. 

And, I need God’s help to conquer unhealthy emotions that drag me down.

Think back to the motivation part of the prayer pattern that I shared:

When I have motivation, I am energized physically, mentally, and emotionally to DO what God wants.

Motivation gives me the


I need 

to MOVE forward 

in God’s plans for me.

I wrote Champion for Christ pages

to increase motivation

in me and others!


To Review

Revelation: When I have the revelation of God, I gain wisdom from God. Then I know what God wants me to do in this situation.

Motivation: When I have the motivation of God, I am energized to DO what God has told me to do.


When I use the revelation and motivation of


to accomplish his plans, 


I see godly transformation in my life.  


God wants to transform us,

and he also frequently wants to

transform our circumstances and situations.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

After I begin to see transformation in my life - 

then comes

the celebration!


So the full pattern is:

Revelation + Motivation = Transformation



I encourage you to pray for

revelation from God

about your circumstances and situations.

I also encourage you to pray for

the motivation of God

so that you will actually do something

about the revelations God is giving you.
