The Prayer Team

“The Prayer Team” is a daily devotion written by Fr. Stavros N. Akrotirianakis. Fr. Stavros is the Parish Priest at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Tampa, Florida. It began 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 on scripture passages, and on Saturdays and Sundays, he writes on “Praying the Liturgy.” Each devotion includes a verse from scripture, a commentary from Fr. Stavros, and a short prayer that he writes to match the topic.
