Ten Days of Prayer 2018
November 27, 2017
Welcome to Ten Days of Prayer 2018! We are so thankful that we can start this year with prayer. God has worked many miracles in past years as we sought Him in prayer and fasting. The Holy Spirit has wrought revival, conversions, renewed passion for evangelism, and healed relationships. Truly, prayer is the birthplace of revival!

We believe your life and the lives of those you pray for will be changed as you join fellow church members in praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, whom the Father has promised to give to those who ask Him. Read the responses of those who participated in the last Ten Days of Prayer:

Our Prayer Theme: Our High Priest

During Ten Days of Prayer 2018, we will examine the apparel of the Old Testament high priest to see what we can learn for ourlives.

We read in TheDesire 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 garments

•Keep your prayers short—just a sentence or two on one topic. Then give others a turn. You can pray as many times as you’d like, just as you talk in a conversation.

•Do not be afraid of silence, as it gives everyone time to listen to the Holy Spirit.

•Singing songs together as the Spirit leads is also a huge blessing. You do not need a piano for this; singing acapella is fine.

•Rather than using up valuable prayer time talking about your prayer requests, simply pray them. Then others can also pray for your requests and claim promises for your need.
