Will Branch preached this past weekend at Eastbrook Church as we continued our series “Great Prayers of the Bible.” Will took on one of my favorite stories in the gospels related to prayer from Mark 9:22-25. Will began his message with Paul’s profound words in 2 Corinthians 12:1-10 about his experience with a thorn in the flesh:
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
Our Weakness (Mark 9:14-22a)
God’s Strength (Mark 9:22b-27)
Our Voluntary Weakness (Mark 9:28-29)
