“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!

    Dear MoMT, Thank you so much for your prayers. In small, quiet ways, the Lord has heard and answered my prayers - not all of them, but He knows best. I offer up my a Rosaries for all of you and ask you to pray for Molly and Jack, both strong Christians who are faced with liver cancer. May God bless each and every one of you. +Peace in Christ, Damian Freeze

    Please pray for a young mom with 4 children (different fathers) who is on welfare. She thinks she may be pregnant with her current live-in boyfriend's child. She is considering abortion but the boyfriend is opposed to it. They were going to go to Planned Parenthood for a pregnancy test but we're trying to steer them in the direction of a local crisis pregnancy center. Thank you!

    Please pray for me and help me find peace with my wife and family. We have been married for 57 years and we do not get along anymore. All we do is fight. At one time when I was 15 years of age, I wanted to be a priest. I will be 80 on the 6th of August. Now all I want is peace and quiet and a place and time to continue writing my books. If I were not married, I would petition your order to let me come live with you and study and be one of you, but that is not to be yet. *Thanks for your comments, Richard. You, your wife and your future books are in are in our prayers.

I need to trust God but how do you know if its time to rest or time to walk on? I need a holy God affirming job *Margie, thank you for sharing some of the difficult aspects of your life with us. Rest assured that you and your family are--and will be--in our prayers.
