Lord, bring breakthrough to our nation. We ask You boldly that You would bring revival to our nation. We thank You.

For years, aviators believed that man could not fly faster than the speed of sound. They believed even an attempt to break the sound barrier would tear an aircraft apart. Yet, in October 1947, Chuck Yeager (who passed away Monday at the age of 97), flying an X-1 at 40,000 feet exceeded 662 miles per hour, broke through the sound barrier. The sound was heard for up to 50 miles.

It was the sound of breakthrough.

I recently had a dream that I believe to be from the Lord. It was short, yet profound, and I believe it is the herald of a sound of breakthrough that will penetrate the earth.

I was in my house when I sensed something was coming. I knew it was coming quickly and I had to warn others.  I somehow knew there was a sound about to pierce through the atmosphere into the earth—one that would shake everything. I ran outside to warn people about the coming sound.

I looked around for those I needed to alert.  As I scanned the area quickly to locate them, I discovered they were up on a ridge above where I was standing. The road leading to the crowds of people was quite steep. In the dream, I felt dread at having to climb the mountain to get to them. However, I breathed deeply and took that first step. I found myself suddenly at the top with no effort or toil.

I called loudly to people, trying to get their attention, to warn them about what was coming. I felt they needed to get into their homes, their place of shelter, before it came. However, before I could get the words out of my mouth – the sound came. It was unlike anything I had ever heard. It was more than loud. It was a thunderous wind that resonated and caused everyone to throw their hands up over their ears and flee in fear. 

The sound caused the wind to blow with extreme force as people ran for shelter.

Then I woke up.

As I prayed into this dream, I began to hear a phrase in my spirit: “The sound of breakthrough.”

I thought about the day one man pierced the sound barrier, breaking through and creating a sound that had not been heard in the earth before that day.

I also thought of another sound—it too, was unheard of…that is until the day of Pentecost.

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. (Acts 2:1-2)

Like the piercing of the sound barrier, the day of Pentecost was also a sound of breakthrough as the Holy Spirit broke through upon the earth.

Sound accompanies breakthrough.

You may find it interesting to learn, the word sound in the Strong’s Concordance means echo.

What invaded the earth that day was the reverberation of the prayers that were ascending to God. The echo came with such force that it created a sound like a mighty rushing wind so intense it shook the building they were gathered in. Not only that, but people came from miles away to see the source of the sound.

The sound of breakthrough I hear coming is an echo.

It is an echo of intense intercession that has gone forth, unceasing, for the healing of our nation. Those fervent prayers have entered into the very presence of God!

The Lord is preparing a sound, an echo of our prayers and our petitions. That sound is our breakthrough!

Echo is defined in the Websters 1828 Dictionary as: “To reverberate or send back sound; to return what has been uttered.”

We are about to see what we have been praying. What we have been declaring and decreeing have not gone unheard. Nor will God fail to answer.

God’s word, spoken from our mouth, will not return void. It will accomplish what it was sent for. It will return to us and echo back as a manifested breakthrough (Is 55:11.)

Our intercession has not been in vain. Listen for the sound. It is about to pierce through the atmosphere. The sound of breakthrough will once again shake this nation, as the Word and the power of God comes to abide in our nation afresh.

It’s time to take cover under the shadow of the Almighty. Thereby, we will not be caught off guard.  For He is coming, and His reward is with Him.

There is no need to fear. This sound, like on the day of Pentecost, is from God. Yes, it will be loud. Perhaps even terrifying. It will shake what can be shaken. But hold fast. Stay under the shelter of His wings. For we are about to hear the sound of breakthrough.

  1. I have found myself praying for the enemies of God, asking Him to pour out His Holy Spirit on them and help them to see they are being deceived and that they would come to the knowledge of Jesus Chris and be saved from destruction-that they would come to accept Jesus and would love and honor and serve Him.

    Amen! 10
    1. I heard the Lord this morning asking me to pray for the salvation of the next Paul (former enemy of Jesus) & Stephen (Full of faith and the Holy Spirit)

      Thank you for sharing.

  2. You Christians and all other unknown Christians who pray are the glue that holds this country together. I realize the importance of a prayer from a Christian and I pray that you continue for the sake of our little ones. And I believe we are very close to our Lord’s return. Only HE has the power to ‘drain the swamp’ and stop all this corruption. I do not say ‘God bless America’ because that is an order. I say- God, PLEASE bless America!… which is a request.
    We thank God for his love and blessings and I thank God for Christians who love enough to pray for the triumph of truth which will come.
    Please help us Lord.

    Amen! 17
  3. When I left my comment yesterday regarding this timely and needed words of the Lord given through Kim, I thought to myself and for the body of Christ “thank you God – we are in need of ongoing encouragement so that we can press in and also share encouragement with others”!!
    As I reviewed comments today, it was a blessing to see that God’s word and voice of encouragement is truly at work.
    Yet today, I sensed another word which I believe is from our Heavenly Father. The piercing of the sound barrier also represents something else. In dictionary terms, “piercing” states the following meaning(s) – (1 ) to cut or pass through with or as if with a sharp instrument (2) to make a hole or opening in (3) to make a way through (4) to ‘sound’ sharply (5) to succeed in discerning or understanding (6) to affect and penetrate; to move deeply; transfix; to bore through.
    These definitions truly line up with what is happening or will happen as God continues the work He has started.
    It’s no coincidence that Mr Yeager passed on at this time. Everything is appointed for God’s timing. The man that pierced the sound barrier has now been called to his heavenly home.
    God is piercing the darkness, the lies, the cover-ups, the criminal actions of those who sought to steal God’s nation that was dedicated to Him decades ago. His sword of justice has started it’s long sweep from heaven to unveil truth that will rock people to their core. The piercing of the tip of His sword has opened the atmosphere and created the path for the prayers of the saints to be poured into God’s lap. His answers will come forth. Be patient and eager but most of all, be faithful. Continue to assault the heavenlies and stand firm in the authority of what God has promised.

    Amen! 24
  4. A year ago, Dec 12, 2019, I woke to the Crystal clear sound of the Lord’s words from Isa 30:30, except that the prophet’s 3rd person pronouns were changed to 1st!!
    “I will cause My voice of Authority to be heard”…(read the context!)
    I have asked several times for light on this to no avail, except that I believed it was for me personally for a current sustained illness lasting for years w no help available to treat it. But praying in this election season has brought me to the belief that this has application to more than my personal situation! This is about His** Authority!!
    When I read the breakthru article I felt compelled to write! We will hear the sound* of the Final Authority & Judge! (Isa 30). He also gave me Rom 13: 1-4 in mid November re the authorities He has placed on earth, that the “sword” will go where justice is needed. That is when I sensed that the Isaiah passage was beyond just me.
    A final note, esp for those into Biblical #s…on Dec 12 (12/12) last year, I felt lead to look up info on the full moon that nite. The time of its rising: 12:12 :).
    * for those unaware, 12 is the # of government/authority.

    Amen! 19
  5. Thank you for the wonderful word of encouragement!! I believe it!! Yes, I needed a word of encouragement myself. I lead a prayer conference call every Tuesday on Facebook “live” from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. MST encouraging others and leading them in praying the Word over our country and elections and leaders.
    Thank you!!
    Blessings on you,
    Sharon Thompson

    Amen! 8
  6. YES! The vials of the prayers of the saints that have been stored in the throne room will soon be tilted and the sound of revival will be poured out! LORD, prepare us for the accompanying persecution like the Western Church has never experienced – for with “new wine” comes the “winepress”!

    Amen! 11
  7. Amen – needed this encouraging word! For the last several days, I have had the word “suddenly” in my heart. That the Lord is going to turn this suddenly. Thank You, Lord, that You are at work in ways we don’t yet see. We trust You – keep our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith.

    Amen! 40
  8. Amen, yes, I believe, this is resonating and echoing within my heart!! Yes, and amen and amen!!! May it be so, Lord Jesus, come and have Your way here on earth, send forth Your Spirit, pour out Your Spirit like never before in these times that we are living in, like a great encore as we call for more, more, more of You having Your way here in the earth that you created and redeemed by Your blood!! Let it be so, amen and amen!!!!

    Amen! 46
  9. Wow. Thank you for sharing. My spirit grabbed onto this word. Yes and Amen! Lord bring Your sound that has been stored up from ages past to be released this hour. Thank You Lord.

    Amen! 31
  10. Thank you for these encouraging words!!! I also hear the sound of a breakthrough and I am expecting God’s big miracles to happen in each city, state, our nation, and this world.

    Amen! 36
  11. We can hear!
    We must hear! The sound of thunder from the heavens! NO FEAR! Our God is able. We will deliver…Psalm 37 states we need not fear the enemy. He will come to an end!

    Amen! 36
  12. Help is on the way!
    Awakened this morning with this old, old hymn today sounding in my soul:

    Like a river glorious is God’s perfect peace,
    Over all victorious, in its bright increase,
    Perfect, yet it floweth fuller every day,
    Perfect, yet it groweth deeper all the way.
    Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
    Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.
    Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
    Never foe can follow, never traitor stand,
    Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
    Not a blast of hurry touch the spirit there.
    Every joy or trial falleth from above,
    Traced upon our dial by the Sun of Love,
    We may trust Him fully all for us to do,
    They who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true.


    Amen! 44
  13. Chuck Yeager: How fascinating that you wrote about breaking the sound barrier the same day the man who first broke it, Chuck Yeager passes away!

    What a parallel is in place. A breakthrough, an echo of sound reverberating into the atmosphere from all the saints who have prayed fervently for truth and liberty. Chuck Yeager, who I met, was willing to risk his life to go where no man had gone. He was a pioneer, and so are we.

    Keep fighting the good fight prayer warriors!!! We are breaking through to the victory!

    Loved this article! God is good.

    Amen! 51
  14. The PrayeGeogia team (facebook)made declaration last week about “Shock and Awe”. Thank you for this encouragement, our prayers, and the prayers of the faithful intercessors are not in vain. The bowl of incense in the heaven is getting filled.

    Amen! 35
  15. This is confirmation of a prophetic word’s interpretation given a couple of years ago. The ultimate meaning was the only thing holding back Jesus coming again to give believers more time to do godly works on the earth was the many, many Prayers of Intercessors! Thank you Father God for this awesome reminder and encouragement to stand fast and stay the course!

    Amen! 43
  16. Thank you for this encouraging word! I woke up during the night saying, “Where are You, Lord?” I have been, and still am, standing in faith that the Lord has heard our prayers for truth and righteousness and that He will win this battle in a mighty way for us! But troops in the thick of battle do welcome encouragement – so I thank the Lord for this encouraging word today! I can’t wait to see the breakthrough come! I have been praying that it will be undeniable to the entire world that God is at work! Praise His Name forever!!!!

    I also am so thankful for the many comments here from brothers and sisters who are also standing firm in faith! I pray for you daily that the Lord would strengthen you and build up your love for Him! How blessed we are to have this wonderful body to pray and praise with!!!

    Amen! 66
  17. Oh how encouraging this word is! How thrilling to know that our prayers have been heard by the God of all creation, and He is about to break forth! Hooray! What joy to know that we are His sons and daughters, and we are alive to see this mighty move of God!

    Amen! 54
  18. It is not by coincidence that this article was written and released on IFA one day after the passing of the man who broke the sound barrier – Chuck Yeager.
    God’s timing and what He is telling us is special and unique.
    Thank you Lord for your timely word and encouragement.

    Amen! 53
    1. How awesome that Chuck Yeager, the guy who broke the sound barrier, died yesterday, and the Lord gave that dream about the sound barrier being broken! God is so poetic. Nothing goes unnoticed by Him! How much I love and admire Him!!

      Amen! 37
  19. The encouragement that I feel after reading your “article” is one of absolute conviction. “I thought about the day one man pierced the sound barrier, breaking through and creating a sound that had not been heard in the earth before that day.” I respectfully add, and since that day. I am praying, waiting, watching, and unquestionably sure that “God will answer!” Amen and Amen, my sister in Christ.

    Amen! 37
  20. Heavenly Father, you are our shelter and our guide. We thank you for breaking through the darkness for us through your son, Y’shua our Messiah. We desire to walk in your light and by your Spirit. We thank you for the break throughs we have already seen, especially in granting boldness to your children in states where religious freedom is being discriminated against. Draw us closer to you in these times, and help us to stand. Silverwind- Breaking Through Rich Mullins- If I Stand

    Amen! 45
  21. I repent of being caught up in this delusion that if so many are doing it how can it be wrong when I knew in my heart it was wrong but the sick desire for pleasure overwhelmed me and I submitted to the temptation of this evil I knew was wrong. I begged for forgiveness as I read and I begged for the blood of Yeshua to cover my unGodly sin, I begged Almighty God to forgive me with tears of true repentance permeating all of my crippled body from my sinful pursuits. I know this breakthrough is coming and I want to hide in Psalm 91. In Yeshua’s incomparable name . . . So Be It!

    Amen! 42
  22. Hallelujah!!! Thank you Kim, for this beautiful, encouraging word and reminder. If we continue to press in and not grow weary, we will see the glory of God pour out into this darkness. God is faithful. His word never, ever fails. So we must continue to speak and decree His promises as we see the lost find Jesus and awakening breakthrough🙏🏻💕

    Amen! 52
  23. Dear Heavenly Father, we are indeed hoping and praying for a breakthrough. Lord, may the light of truth and the thunder of righteousness sweep across this land. Free us from the evil that has gripped our land, Dear Lord. Expose the wicked for who and what they are, and may the deceived see this light and hear this thunder and turn to you. Lord, please heal the wounds that inflict our nation, and guide us all as we play our part. In Jesus precious name I pray, O Lord, Amen.

    Amen! 61
  24. I just heard on the radio that Chuck Yeager has died at the age of 97! How amazing this article is today! Lord Jesus, I praise you for being our King and Savior, all powerful, full of love, and abounding in mercy. The foundation of your throne is justice and righteousness! You love to hear the prayers of the Church, your bride, and we have fervently prayed for this nation, the United States of America. What joy to know that we have a breakthrough and that heavens armies have been released to bring your kingdom to earth, that there will be an amazing and astonishing display of your glory! We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice for we trust in His holy name. May your unfailing love be upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You. Ps. 33
    Marantha! Praise Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

    Amen! 58
  25. The Lord gave me a word at church this past Sunday. It was, “God’s Glory and Power are coming. Stand for impact.” I believe our prayers ARE being heard and answered by our Lord. It will be powerful and possibly frightening because it will be awesome! I look forward to what my Father is about to do!

    Amen! 61
  26. That the LORD is not slack in his promises, that just in his perfect timing when all seems dark & lost. As the new day dawns, the sun comes up as this breakthrough will come through. Then, Joy comes in the morning for HE will deliver his people who call on his name. He will restore all that is lost. And the world will know who God is in America. One Nation under God.

    Amen! 61
  27. Oh my! The encouragement of hearing once again the sound of a breakthough. Let it be! I just worship our Lord and Savior with all mu heart. He Touched Me comes to mind and I will carry it in my mind today

    Amen! 47
  28. The Lord is returning, and His reward IS With Him!
    So not your typical “refreshing” a computer screen, a cell phone “reboot”,
    Instead reboot our lives in The Word! Holy Spirit dive us into the waves appearing boisterous and we shall surface, rebooted and running to Jesus!
    Mercy, Lord Jesus have Your way, your Word will BE done!

    Amen! 59
  29. YES!!!! Our Lord God WILL bring breakthrough and the “suddenly” we are waiting for in faith believing as we continue to contend for it in prayer and declarations!! We must not grow weary or faint in this battle! The battle is the Lord’s, and greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world!! Fight on in prayer sons and daughters of God! Don’t give up!!! Thank you for this very encouraging word!!!!🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

    Amen! 78
  30. Lord God Our Father and Almighty One in Jesus Christ name Prepare us for this shaking and helps to hold fast to truth and you. Praying your will for us and humble ourselves to you. And fulfill your destiny for individual and national sovereignty.
