Breakthrough 45 Day 42

It is hard to believe that we are approaching the last day of Breakthrough 45! What an honor it has been to partner with the Lord these past weeks, praying for His people in the Middle East and going deep to the core of our own hearts. We are believing for great things to come out of these many nights of prayer.

This Friday night is our last Breakthrough 45 gathering for the year, and Pastor Ghassan Thomas, an Iraqi pastor from Baghdad, will be joining us. He will share some amazing testimonies of how God miraculously moved in the persecuted church of Baghdad to be a light to terrorists, and how he is helping persecuted Christian refugees throughout the world. He is currently partnering with a ministry in Pennsylvania called Healing Tree International to plant a ministry center in Kurdistan where he will give pastoral leadership.

What an amazing way to wrap up this season of prayer

Breakthrough 45 Day 38

“If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.”
John 14:14

Our prayers are powerful and effective! They change nations and shift atmospheres! Our prayers extend the Kingdom of God on the earth!

These three statements are very powerful truths that every believer should hold onto. If every one of us believed these three things to be true then our prayer lives would probably change dramatically and we would be willing to go anywhere or do anything for the Lord no matter the cost. Trials and hardships in our own lives and all around the world would not look as scary or disheartening because of how grounded we were in the truth that Papa will hear our prayers.

This week at Breakthrough 45 the Lord has been challenging us all in the place of trust. He wants to take each and every single one of us into deeper levels of trust with Him so that when it is time to step out of the boat, we

Breakthrough 45 Day 31

This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine!

I bet most of us remember singing and doing the hand motions to this song when we were little. I know I remember singing it and meaning it with everything I had in my heart. There was no way that anyone was going to put out my light and I was going to show the world who God was by this little light. Wow! What faith we have as young children; we believe God can do anything and we don’t understand why anyone would believe differently.

This week at Breakthrough 45, the Lord has taken us back to a place of child-like faith, where we can fully believe for the light of God to shine into and transform Muslim countries. We prayed for believers that are already in those countries to be refreshed and their spirits to be renewed because they are truly making a difference. The light that they carry within them is piercing the darkness and

Breakthrough 45 Day 24

“For this reason I kneel before the Father,
from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
Ephesians 3:14-19

With every passing night, God expands our view of Himself showing how much more He has to give than what we already possess. There is an ever-present invitation for more in every area of our lives, whether it be faith, gifts, understanding, identity, confidence, or gratitude. All of these things were

Breakthrough 45 Day 17

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;
nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand,
and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men
in such a way that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father who is in heaven.“
Matthew 5:14-16

This week the Lord has been teaching us about our authority as His sons and daughters. Each night we were given a new piece of that identity and were able to recognize the lies that were keeping us from it. Papa started by again going to those deep places in our hearts and healing wounds that kept us from believing that He is our protector. Not believing that Papa is our protector keeps Him from being able to encounter every part of our hearts because we have closed off areas out of pain. We want the fullness of Father God because allowing our hearts to

Breakthrough 45 Day 10

The deeper we go, the more living water we are able to enjoy and the more refreshment is brought to our souls.

This past week at Breakthrough 45, we have continued in the same stream of going to the core with Abba and watching how that turns our hearts towards prayer for a move of God on the earth. We have been going after deeper levels of trust and intimacy with our Papa and He has been releasing healing in all areas of our lives. There has been surrender of burdens and hearts stirred to contend for those closest to us. There is freedom in believing who God says He is and what He wants to do in our own lives.

This personal breakthrough has put a fresh fire in our hearts to pray for our families, the nations and a mass harvest on the earth because the truth of who God is has permeated our hearts. Each evening has been marked with thanksgiving and praise as well as a deep desire to

Breakthrough 45 Day 5

We were all made with purpose and destiny inside of us!

Jeremiah 1:5
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

Everyone has a story that is unique to them, no story is the same and it guides them on this journey that is life. When Papa created us He did so with purpose and destiny in mind and was so excited for us to discover pieces of this throughout our whole life. Day by day our story unfolds and you start to see how each situation builds on the next. Whether good or bad, Papa can use them to push us towards our destiny.

Last night at Breakthrough 45, we had the pleasure of having the pastor of Embassy Church share with us the history of their church and about some of the local moves of God here in DC. He shared with us how a small group of people, spurred on by the Welsh Revival, felt the

Breakthrough 45 Day 4

The Lord’s name is a promise to all generations.

Start speaking out all the names of the Lord that you know and claim them for your own life. Each one of His names speaks of a promise to the ones that love Him. He doesn’t just call Himself provider and not provide, or a God of love and not pour forth love. These names are His character and nature, it is impossible for Papa to be anything other than true to every single one of His names. We can hold tight to these promises and let them bring us hope in every situation.

When praying for the nations it has been so important to know the character and nature of God because it helps guide and direct our prayers. Knowing that Papa’s banner over us is love really puts praying for a harvest in perspective because He loves everyone unconditionally and His heart breaks for them. Clinging to those promises allows for each of us to go into

Breakthrough 45 Day 3

Our God is a breakthrough God!

As we entered these 45 days, God gave us a theme of breakthrough in the nations coming from a breakthrough within our own hearts. He has taken us deep into our identities as His children and last night burst forth into a passion for the Middle East!

Countries were called out by name and God was clearly putting a new burning in our hearts for this part of the world. As we prayed for laborers, we were gripped with hope for what is often considered hard soil. No soil is too hard for Him! There is no darkness too dark! We know that He is winning!

Chorus of the Night

Rise up and proclaim
Freedom found in Jesus name
He’s our savior

Breakthrough 45 Day 2

We are sons and daughters of a KING!

During the second night of Breakthrough 45, the Father made it clear that it was His desire to first take us deep in our identities as His children. In Psalms 2:7, God calls us His children and from there He tells us to ask for the nations. As we become vulnerable before the Father and surrender our fears, we start to walk in our identities and we can step out to receive the Kingdom.

We saw this happening over the course of the night as God was speaking out truth over every individual, declaring “You are forgiven!”, “You are my son and my daughter!”, “I love you and created you for a purpose!” There was no hiding the freedom in the room, as individuals were grabbing hold of the truth about who they are and standing firm in their God-given identity.

The Lord is truly taking us deep and wasting no time in going to the core so as to reveal
