Elder Amphilochios of Patmos on the importance of evening prayer.
Most of us have some type of ritual before going to bed—brushing your teeth, reading the Bible, etc. One thing that must be on our list of nighttime activities is praying to God, as Elder Amphilochios of Patmos says:
Do not neglect evening prayer. Pray with eagerness like those who are going to a feast. They are awake and feel joy alone. Thus, since you are going to speak with your Bridegroom, do not listen when the Tempter tells you various things in order to hinder you, because you know there is someone who cares for you.
"It is my firm belief that listening to Ancient Faith Radio can provide an important building block of an authentic Orthodox spiritual life. I listen to the Ancient Faith music feed while working at my secular job as a computer programmer. It helps cut back on idle conversation and sanctifies the time, bringing spiritual life to the mind and heart. I have determined to support your ministry regularly, and encourage others to do so also. Many Years!"
