Orthodox Christian Network brings you news of events and people important to the life of the Orthodox Church around the world. OCN highlights media organizations that track these important stories.
Welcome to “The Prayer Team,” a new ministry at OCN provided by our good friend Fr. Stavros Akrotirianakis! Many of you have asked us for a daily devotion, and Fr. Stavros has kindly answered the call!
Fr. Stavros is the Parish Priest at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Tampa, Florida. He tells us that “The Prayer Team” began as an opportunity to write more on the subject of prayer, but once the ministry began, it branched out from prayer to other subjects as well. But the need to pray daily remains, so he includes a prayer with each daily reflection, no matter what the topic.
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.
We will be sharing these daily reflections here on our website, and you will soon have the option to sign up and receive them in your email in-box as well. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your interest in receiving the daily devotion via email.
Thank you for joining us! Glory to God for all things!
