“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 unemployed and fearful . I know not to be Anxious for nothing but it feels like it's something! I need help with my unbelief. I am the only one capable of work in my family but I feel so much as if i'm walking through that valley of the shadow of death. 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.

    Please pray for me and my desire to serve the Lord in a very special way. After surviving a terrible car accident in January 2014 (Which all the Dr's said I should not have survived ! ) I am healing and searching for my new purpose to serve the Lord and the People of God. *Bishop Hillis, I wanted to let you know, a bit belatedly, that the Monks of Mt. Tabor have been praying for you for almost a couple of weeks now, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Thanks for contacting us and may God continue to bless you.
