End Times Prayer for Breakthrough - Part 3 – How Does A Person Persevere In Prayer?
Here in Part 3 of end times prayer for breakthrough we look at how a person can persevere by meditating on the following scripture:
Matthew 7:11 (NIV)11 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!
1. The believer must come to God as his Father. Christ explicitly tells us how to come to God.
a. We must come to God as "Our Father which is in heaven." The words "in heaven" acknowledge His sovereignty. God is able to do whatever we ask, and we are to expect Him to grant our requests.
b. We must come to God as we come to an earthly father: freely and openly, communicating and fellowshipping. And we are to come often, not neglecting the love, respect, and trust due Him.
Note the words "how much more." Whatever earthly parents are, God is much more. He is much more as a Person and as a Father. He knows each of our end times prayer requests and He has the knowledge, intelligence, wisdom, and power to grant them.
God has taken the initiative to create the family relationship with us. He has adopted us as children of God. Therefore, we can come to Him in our end times prayer with much more trust and confidence than we can to our earthly fathers.
But we must persevere in the end times prayer for breakthrough; we do not know what is going on in the spiritual realm or what all God may have to put in place for our breakthrough prayers to be answered. If we lack perseverance in our end times prayers, we are really showing God we are not really that interested in having the prayer answered.
God is love (1 John 4:8,16). He is so loving He compares His love and tenderness to that of a mother (Isaiah 66:13. He desires that we strive for breakthrough in our end times prayer with Him. He understands the spiritual warfare of everyday life for us and His heart’s desire is for us to persevere for breakthrough prayer in these end times as we go through our day.
"For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God" (Romans 8:15-16).
"Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered" (Romans 8:26).
"But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father" (Galatians 4:4-6).
- The believer must come to God for good, wholesome things.
That is, things that are beneficial, honorable, needful qualities and not in excess of what we need; things that are decent, moral, clean, honest, clean-living, upright, good and healthy for our body, soul and spirit. We can persevere all we want for breakthrough end times prayer, but if our prayers are for anything other than the above, they will not be answered.
Think about it – If you were to ask your earthly father for things that were unclean, immoral, dishonest or things that would have a negative impact on your life, should he give it to you? Of course not!
Earthly fathers are human and sometimes carnal, and some fathers are even deliberately evil. But our heavenly Father desires end times prayer for breakthrough for us and He is showing us that it takes perseverance for that to happen.
Note three things about earthly fathers.
1) Earthly fathers sometimes make mistakes in what they give. They can and do give stone and serpent-like things to their sons, not deliberately, but mistakenly. They are simply deceived by what the world calls acceptable and good.
But God is not deceived. God gives only "good things," things that are truly wholesome and beneficial. If we ask for that which is wrong and harmful to us, God will quickly and pointedly say, "No," or else He will give what is really needed.
2) Earthly fathers are sometimes ill-natured, cross, provoking, and wrong in their response to a child's request. But not God. He always understands, He always knows exactly how to respond and He always knows what and when to give.
3) Earthly fathers are sometimes evil and harmful, threatening and dangerous, forsaking and deserting. But not God. God knows exactly how to meet the needs of the son or daughter who is forsaken or who is deserted (Psalm 27:10).
