Making Space for Prayer

Art of Prayer Series Gfx_App WideThis past weekend at Eastbrook we began a new three-week series entitled “The Art of Prayer,” looking at Jesus’ approach to the life of prayer.

I began the series with a message entitled “Making Space for Prayer.” Jesus is the Master of prayer, and He makes space for prayer. We see this throughout the Gospel of Luke, and it comes clearest in Luke 5:16: “Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” What does Jesus’ pattern of making space for prayer teach us about our own life of prayer?

You can watch the message here, following along with the outline below. You can also follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.
