“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!

    please intervene God. I'm hurt inside, please pray for Damianus aditya christie and myself. I have been waiting for reconciliation and peace for me and him, I have been struggling with pain for the past 4 years. I know You knows my pain God, You always know what was happened because You see everything a most hidden corner, Father you say, knock and the door will be opened to you. I come with a broken heart, I feel hopeless and emptyness. i depend on you and still hope, please pity me Father, please soften and touch Damianus aditya christie heart for me. I can't touch his heart, i know that prayer is a powerful thing. only God can change people's hearts. please help me face things that are beyond my capabilities. because God, You have power to help me. and if You don't want this reconciliation to happen, please give me strength to overcome the bitterness. Teach me how to remain grateful when the hardest one, teach me to love You more than anything. I really need a miracle, thank you
