  • Jesus started with prayer; He went to baptism praying, died, and resurrected, and He is still praying. Hebrews 7:25 says, "Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them."
  • Even Jesus is still praying; He prayed on earth and is still praying in heaven. Every believer must stay connected to prayers. Why? Luke 18:1 says, "And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint," 1 Thessalonians 5:17 - "Pray without ceasing." Not once in a while, but always. We are to pray without stopping.
Realize that prayer is a communication between you and God; you can't say you are a son of God and you're not communicating with your father. Prayer is the key through thanksgiving, intercession, and supplication. These are the ways where you communicate with God.

Breakthrough prayers and scriptures

P. Daniel, as he is fondly called, also shared specific types of prayers, supported by relevant scriptures, to offer to God when seeking a breakthrough in marriage or any other area of life. He said:

When believing God for a breakthrough, start by thanking the Lord for what He has done for you. Appreciation is an application for more. Psalm 100:4a says, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise."
Then you enter into supplication, requesting and crying to God for help. When I was trusting God for a breakthrough, I cried for the help of the Lord; I cried for mercy. The Bible in Psalm 46:1 says, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

P. Daniel concluded by expressing his unwavering trust in God as his ultimate source of help when seeking a breakthrough. He highlighted his practice of reminding God of His scriptures and promises, saying, "Lord, you have told me this," or "Lord, you have promised me this." He emphasized God's commitment to honoring His word above His name. Some of the scriptures include:
