Back to school prayer (9/4/2018)

“You crown the year with Your goodness,
And Your paths drip with abundance.”
Psalm 65:11

“Dear God, here are your kids, ready for their first day at school. They have been counting the days. They are so thrilled. Be with them today when they go into unfamiliar rooms, when they see new faces (make them kind faces!), when they stand in the lunch line, when they are on the playground. Keep them close to You as they learn and grow and make friends. Protect them from harm. Watch over them on the way to and from school. And as they become part of a larger world, help me to let them go and gain experience that they will need to become a responsible part of Your creations. Amen.”

God bless all our sons and daughters.

Pope Kyrillos VI (3/10/2018)

“Prayer can do all things, for it moves the Hand that manages the whole universe.”

“I prayed for a pure heart, it took me a long time and a hard struggle to discover that prayer itself is the only road to a pure heart.”

“Prayer is the storage of grace and backbone of blessings, it controls anger and conquers the spirit.”

“A heart that has no guard, no watcher, no preparation and no armour becomes a target for strange thoughts.”

Pope Kyrillos VI
