DAY 3 : To build a friendship with God you must believe that he knows and wants what's best for your life. Then you can worship Him out of gratitude. Friendship with God is reserved for those who reverence him. With them alone he shares the secrets of his promises.
Psalm Be still, and know that I am God! I will be exalted in the whole earth. Without faith it is impossible to please God. So anyone who comes to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews God says, Only by returning to me and waiting for me will you be saved.
In quietness and trust you will find the strength you need. Isaiah DAY 4 : It isn't the size of your faith that causes breakthroughs in your life, rather it is WHO you place your faith in, that makes the impossible possible. A small faith placed in a big God will see big results. Don't focus on your small faith, or even your problem.
Instead focus on God's greatness. Jesus said, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. I pray that you will begin to understand how incredibly great God's power is to help those who believe him.
It is that same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead. Ephesians Glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us, is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes!
Prayer for the day
DAY 5 : It is wise and helpful to listen to what God has to say to you first in his Word before you say something to God. This is why you should read or listen to a portion of the Bible at the start of your prayer times. Jesus has even made promises about this habit: Jesus promised, "If you make yourself at home in me and my Words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask me for will be given to you. Jesus also promised, If you continue in my word, then you are truly my disciple.
Then you shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free! DAY 6 : Gratitude is the breakthrough attitude. God tells us that we should always make our requests with thanksgiving — in the spirit of gratitude for what God is already done for us. And, when you thank God in advance for the answers to your prayers, that is an expression of faith. Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God whatever you need but always ask for it with thanksgiving, asking him with a thankful heart for all he's done.
If you do this, you'll experience God's peace which is far more powerful than we can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and emotions at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus. Then fix your thoughts on things that are true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable, and fill your mind with thoughts that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you have learned from me and God will be with you. Philippians DAY 7 : It is time to start praying for breakthroughs in the lives of others in our Saddleback family.
Over 23, have signed up to pray 3 times a day in seeking God.
What should you pray for others? Pray what you would want others to pray for you! God always blesses people who are a blessing to others. Jesus gave us The Golden Rule: So whatever you would want people to do [or pray] for you, that is what you should do [and pray] for them! It was after Job had prayed for his friends, that the Lord restored Job's fortune and gave him success again.
In fact, God gave Job twice as much as he had owned before he lost it all. Job Anyone who generously blesses others will himself be blessed, and whoever helps others will be helped. Proverbs I'll be praying for you all this week, and let's all be praying for each other! If you have a breakthrough in any area, please share your story with the rest of us at saddleback.

Since today is Thanksgiving, I want to focus on the benefits of thanking God in prayer. Numerous studies have proven 3 powerful benefits:. First, gratitude is the healthiest human emotion. The more you choose to be grateful in life instead of grumbling, the healthier and happier you will be.
This is a proven, medical fact. Second, gratitude is the breakthrough attitude. Every time you express thanks to God or others, your brain becomes more creative. You begin to see possibilities and solutions to problems you thought were unsolvable.
