A Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians

   
Translated from the Greek by the Holy Transfiguration Monastery

“The Apostle of the Nations enjoins us to ‘pray without ceasing,’ and this goal of uninterrupte noetic prayer remains the goal of every Christian. In our times, however, we are faced with demands and distractions which make this goal all the more difficult. We would therefore especially urge all Christians to spend time in prayer in the morning, to remember the prayers before and after meals, and to read the Service of Small Compline in the evening. Every day, monastics are enjoined to read the Akathist to the Theotokos as part of their daily rule of prayer, and we would also commend this practice to all Orthodox Christians. These are small things, and yet the establishment of them as a cycle of daily prayers is of very great importance to our spiritual life[.]”
