“Prayer, by reason of its nature, is the converse and union of man with God, and by reasons of its actions,
upholds the world,and brings about reconciliation with God.”

~St. John Climacus, "The Ladder of Divine Ascent"

WE WOULD LIKE TO ASK FOR YOUR PRAYERS TOO: PRAY FOR UKRAINE.

Is there a stronger statement for the power of prayer than, "upholds the world?"  Some will accuse St. John of gross exaggeration but not the monk. 
Prayer brings joy to the monk's heart, peace to his soul, humbles him and makes him yearn for God.  We take our role in intercessory prayer very seriously
and welcome your petitions, large and small.  Please use either our Guestbook below or the more private form on the Contact page, and we will offer your
intentions during our Noon and Vespers offices where, given our numbers, Christ is always in our midst.

Thank you and may God bless you.  Glory to Jesus Christ!

    Greetings to you. I am asking for prayers for my son Michael for his continued growth of faith and discernment of the Lord's mercies, grace and will. I live with him and at times this is challenging. I pray for and ask for your prayers also for God's divine intervention in a treasured but broken friendship with my lost friend Michelle. God knows all of the unspoken details. I pray that mercy, grace, forgiveness, and Love prevail. I pray for your safety with the fires around and for this world. Lord have mercy on us all. Thank you, and may you all be encouraged by Christ to prevail in these trying days. Grace and peace, Amy

Requiesce in pace.
