PRAYER: Food for Soul
By Fr. Vartan Joulfayan

Prayer has a great power. The Apostles of Christ who carried nothing with them and owned nothing, they prayed over the sick and through miracles believers were healed.  When St. Paul and Silas were in prison at Philippi, they prayed and sang hymns to God, “And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and every one’s fetters were unfastened” (Acts 16: 25-27).

"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" (Mk. 11:24)
Spiritual Message by Fr. Vartan Joulfayan

We live in a society today that has many ways and means which put our minds under tremendous pressure and hinders a necessary communication between our Creator and us.  This communication which lifts us from the secular to spiritual level is achieved through prayer.

Pastor Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation

“Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance.  We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done.  We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice.  We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.  We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.  We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.  We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.  We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.   Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free. Amen!”
