Week of Prayer in Friedensau
10. Nov. 2018
From 5th to 10th November 2018 the week of prayer at Friedensau Adventist University took place. Prof. Lidija Djordjevic Runic from Belgrad was invited to do the daily sermons from Monday to Friday with the topic “Lead me Lord”. The week concluded with a service on Saturday 10th November 2018 in the chapel.
Every evening Lidija Runic introduced different personalities from the bible. Jacob, son of Isaac and Rebecca for example, who betrays his brother for the special firstborn blessing from his father. Or Leah, one of two wives of Jacob, unloved but hoping she could gain her husbands love for her. Joseph, favourite son of Jacob, whose brothers sold him to slavery out of jealousy; whose special position in Egypt was a blessing for his family later. Another example was Daniel. He came as slave to Babylon, lived an exemplary live and gained respect and jealousy. What do Jackob, Leah, Joseph and Daniel have in common? How can they be a role model for our life?
