Prayer, The Daily Order
May 26, 2006 Length: 1:00:24
We begin a series on prayer which is the center of the life of the Orthodox Christian. Prayer is our connection to God who is our life. It is to be like our breathing, without ceasing. The Church provides a deep wealth of writings about prayer, but it also provides us with a daily order of services that structures the entire day around prayer. We are able to pray in the same ways the Jews prayed at set hours of the day that we see in the book of Acts. In this program Steve and Bill begin a discussion of the daily order of prayer services and then next week will move into "personal prayer" and a discussion of "The Jesus Prayer", the single most important prayer of our spiritual life.
"Ancient Faith Radio provides spiritual sustenance with superb content; it's a treasury of good gifts and a stream of clear water. I live in Moscow, Russia, and it was a very heartening experience for me to hear the strong and clear message of Orthodox Christianity from English-speaking brethren in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada. Amazing homilies from Fr. Pat Reardon and Fr. Theodore Paraskevopoulos! Thank you very much, Fr. Matthew, for your in-depth reflections on the writing of the Church Fathers. May God bless your efforts!"
