“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!

    For my 1st grade class and I (as well as the other class and their teacher, Kathy). That the Lord would repair what I've done badly and make up for what I've left undone this year. For abundant blessings and healing and a peaceful, joyful, grace-filled end of the year for all. Thank you!!

    Please pray that God has not forsaken me. I don’t ask much of God but when I do I never recieve. I am so lost in this worlds without a God who cares and loves me. Every request I ask of him for help with loved ones has been denied. Please pray that God will show His mercy and love on me so I can believe in miracles from God. Thank you....
