Orthodox Prayer

Bishop Christodoulos of the Holy Metropolis Greek Orthodox Church discusses the purpose of Orthodox Christian prayer.

In this video, the young man discovers the Coptic Orthodox monks praying as do today and as they have for centuries.

Arise, you, O children of the light, to praise the Lord of Hosts, that He may grant us the salvation of our souls. When we stand in the flesh before You, take away from our minds the sleep of forgetfulness, and grant us alertness, in order that we understand how to stand up before You at the time of prayer, and send up to You the appropriate doxology, and win the forgiveness of our many sins.

This video shows how a Christian should pray as the video's author was taught from his Father of Confession.

Probably the last recording of the Elder Cleopa, in which he talks about the stages of the prayer.
