Need for prayer
When guided by prayer, the moral powers within us become stronger that all of our temptations and we conquer them.
Elder Ephraim of Arizona
Translated by Dr. Nick Stergiou
True Love for God
The man who really loves the Lord, who has made a real effort to find the coming Kingdom, who has really begun to be troubled by his sins, who is really mindful of eternal torment and judgment, who really lives in fear of his own departure, will not love, care or worry about money, or possessions, or parents, or worldly glory, or friends, or brothers, or anything at all on earth.
St. John Climacus
