Prayer of Dependence: Habakkuk

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church, I had the privilege of continuing our “Great Prayers of the Bible” series by co-preaching with my wife, Kelly. This weekend’s message explores the prayer of Habakkuk during the impending judgment and exile of the people of God. With our attention on chapter 3, Kelly and I developed our message around the following idea: in difficult times, the one who trusts in the Living God will live and flourish.

You can view the message video and an expanded sermon outline below. You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.
