“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!

    I am a Christian guy and law student. I need a prayer to pass the last exam that I recently wrote. Also pray for me to secure an articling position at any law firm or a suitable position in the government (I have exams and interviews related to positions). I have been studying hard and currently doing a job that is not related to the legal field, which is making me feel down.

    Please pray for a kid I met at a retreat, I cannot remember his name but he is in deep depression and I don't know what all he is going through, but I know he need prayers, I pray for his healing, and to know he is loved. Please also pray for my friend Monica to stop playing with fire, (new age practices) and to see the danger in them. And for my soon to be brother in laws conversion, his name is Nate. Also for my relationship with my dad to be better than it is, and for the grace of humility and purity and to grow closer to God and the truth. I ask this in Jesus name. Amen. Thank you.

    Thank you for your powerful prayers. I had a truly amazing first bible school weekend. Please continue to pray for me, for my healing&deliverance bible school process. And please also continue to pray for my finances, a new job, and for my marriage. More specific please pray for me to be able to overcome all (unjustified) distrust and be able to fully trust my husband, forever, and be in eternal marriage together. Because I had a bad example as earthly father I struggle to trust my good husband, this is one of the reasons I go to the deliverance bible school and to heal old woundings.(also pray for me to come to total forgiveness of everyone/everything needed for for ever) I go on my birthday (23-09-2019) to South Africa with my husband for a few weeks, for the first time togheter, he has worked there in the past as missionary. I need also many many graces and miracles so I can deliver soon from my problems also in economic, finance, and employment. Have mercy on me. Wish you His Shalom & Bless you. Amanda
