Prayer as the Pathway to Unity

EM07262015 16x9 TitleIt is great to talk about unity but how do we really achieve it?

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church I continued our “One Church” series by exploring that question through Jesus’ high priestly prayer in John 17. In my message this weekend, “Prayer as the Pathway to Unity,” I specifically looked at John 17:20-26, where Jesus prays for the future believers, like us, to be one. My main point is that prayer is the pathway to unity and without prayer we will not achieve unity as believers.

You can view a video of the message and the accompanying outline below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here.
