“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 really need prayers about my apartment. I am an American living in Germany, and due to my landlord doing illegal things, I had to leave my apartment for my own safety and well being. There is only one place available in my entire city in my price range, and while I am in line to take the room, the landlord of this apartment is not cooperating. Right now I am safe living with a friend, but I really need prayers that the new landlord will cooperate and I can move in next week. Please pray that I can move into this new apartment.Thank you so much.
