Give Prayer a Chance for Success

Give Prayer a Chance for Success


“Acquire a peaceful spirit and then thousands of others around you will be saved.” What did St. Seraphim of Sarov mean by this? Listen as Fr. Stavros Akrotirianakis and Fr. Chris talk about the joys of establishing a relationship with God through prayer.  We can’t carry a full load of activity and expect to find peace.  Prayer, and a prayer rope, might be the key to true happiness.

But first, we’ve invited Mark Brodie, owner of MiB Mediaworks, to tell us about his experience in making PISTEVO, the Art of Belief, a documentary recently produced by Michael and Robin Psaros and family.  Mark offers the insight of a non-Orthodox (non-Christian) experience of iconography.
