10 Steps to a Spiritual Breakthrough
3. PERSISTENT PRAYER Jesus shared a story about prayer about an elderly lady who banged on a judge's door until he brought justice. Jesus taught in the same way, we should be persistent in our prayers, and our Father in heaven "will see that we get justice, and quickly." (See Luke 18:1-8)
4. FASTING Jesus taught that some spiritual breakthroughs will not happen without prayer and fasting. (See Mark 9:14-29) It has been said "When you abstain through fasting, it shows God you're serious. And God takes that seriously, if the cause honors Him. The reality is some spiritual breakthroughs are only possible with the combination of prayer and fasting. It's amazing how many defining moments in my life and ministry trace back to seasons of fasting."
