The Prayer Team

“The Prayer Team” is a daily devotion written by Fr. Stavros N. Akrotirianakis, written every day since February 2015. Fr. Stavros is the Parish Priest at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Tampa, Florida. It began in February 2015 as an opportunity to write more on the subject of prayer and now has branched into other subjects. On Monday through Friday, Fr. Stavros writes various topics (recent units have included “Go-To Verses from Scripture”, “The Ten Commandments”, and “Building Authentic Relatoinships”), each beginning with scripture and ending with a prayer.  On Saturdays and Sundays, he writes reflections on the Sunday Epistles (Saturday) and the Gospels (Sunday).  Each devotion includes a verse from scripture, a commentary from Fr. Stavros, and a short prayer that he writes to match the topic.
