10 DAYS OF PRAYER 2018
|Event Name||10 DAYS OF PRAYER 2018|
|Start Date||10th Jan 2018|
|End Date||20th Jan 2018|
Many churches and members around Ireland have embraced the tradition of dedicating ten days at the start of each year to prayer. 2018 offers another such opportunity.
During Ten Days of Prayer 2018, we will examine the apparel of the Old Testament high priest to see what we can learn for our lives.
We read in the well known book, The Desire of Ages: “Everything worn by the priest was to be whole and without blemish. By those beautiful official garments was represented the character of the great antitype, Jesus Christ. Nothing but perfection, in dress and attitude, in word and spirit, could be acceptable to God. He is holy, and His glory and perfection must be represented by the earthly service. Nothing but perfection could properly represent the sacredness of the heavenly service” (The Desire of Ages, p. 709).
Everything that the priest wore and did was intended to leave a certain impression upon the people: “Everything connected with the apparel and deportment of the priests was to be such as to impress the beholder with a sense of the holiness of God, the sacredness of His worship, and the purity required of those who came into His presence” (Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 351). During these days of prayer, we will discover some spiritual lessons symbolized by the priest’s garment.
