Re-Aligning the Wheels of Prayer: Body-to-Spirit

In “How Should I Pray,” it is suggested to begin praying by “focusing your consciousness in your heart and forcibly gathering there all powers of the soul and body. Take the time at the beginning of your prayer time to quiet your body and to concentrate your energies in your heart.” Some further steps include:

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
