What does faith-filled prayer look like?
That was the central question I set out to answer this past weekend as I continued our “Faith Life” series at Eastbrook Church. Drawing upon Genesis 18:16-33, I outlined five types of faith-filled prayer that we see in this wonderfully entrancing dialogue between God and Abraham.
You can watch the video for the sermon and follow along with the sermon outline that is also included below.
