BREAKTHROUGH is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. From producer DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven), BREAKTHROUGH is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle.

Throughout Scripture, it is assumed that people can talk to God. Engaging in meaningful conversations with God was not the exception to the life of His people, it was expected. Prayer shows up in stories and letters as a vital practice, but how do we actually do it well? This 5-day plan will help you understand what prayer is and how to engage in this life-changing practice and experience your own breakthrough prayers.

BREAKTHROUGH hits theaters nationwide, beginning April 17. You can view the trailer and find out more details at

01 01

Prayer is From the Heart

At root, prayer is sincere, heartfelt communication between God and the human beings He created. From beginning to end in Scripture, praying from the heart is simply assumed.
02 02

Prayer is Persistent Belief

If prayer is talking to God about the things that matter most to you, then why shouldn’t it happen all the time? Don’t stop praying -- God desires this type of direct contact with your heart.
03 03

Prayer is an Invitation to Participate with God

We must always remember our best efforts are not what affects the outcome. It’s God, allowing us as beloved sons and daughters to approach Him and cooperate in His mighty works.
04 04

Prayer is Faith in the One You Love

Relinquish your drive to control the wildness of God and instead let his reckless love be your refuge and your rock. You will never feel more secure than when you are fully trusting in Him.
05 05

Prayer is Complete Surrender to God's Will

We simply come to God in faith and surrender, not because we know how He should solve our problems, but because we know He is the only one who can.
