Prayer of Surrender: Mary

As we continued our Great Prayers of the Bible” series this past weekend at Eastbrook Church, I spoke from Mary’s prayers of surrender to God in Luke 1. This weekend’s message explores what it means to pray into a place of surrender with God and why surrendering to God in prayer is one of the best things we can do. This was the second of two weekends of outdoor worship services for us, which explains why the video may look different.

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