      Orthodox Worship
    Prayer is the essence of the Orthodox Christian way of life. It is the means by which one achieves communion with God. Moreover, it is the means by which one experiences the presence of God in his/her life.
      No Spiritual Life without Prayer
    It is Orthodox teaching that all the virtues and powers of God are attained primarily through prayer. Prayer is the unification of the mind and the heart within the soul. - Fr. Thomas Hopko
