St John Chrysostom says..
He who is able to pray correctly, even if he is the poorest of all people, is essentially the richest. And he who does not have proper prayer, is the poorest of all, even if he sits on a royal throne.
Prayer matters. It is the heart of the Christian experience and a Christian who does not pray is a contradiction in terms. Over the course of the next three talks at this monthly midweek meeting of the Orthodox mission of St George and St Paul the Hermit we will be considering that request which the disciples made of our Lord to ‘teach us to pray’. It often seems to many Christians that they are just expected to know how to pray, and by simply following the example of those around them, everything will turn out alright. But in my own experience as a committed Christian throughout my life, and then as becoming a member of the Orthodox Church in 1994, and even a priest in 2009, I know that I am still learning how to pray, and will continue to be learning how to pray until the end of my life.
