Elder Ephraim: “a mood for prayer”

6 February 2016

 

Elder Ephraim of Philotheou edited

“… We must prepare ourselves for it. We must enclose ourselves within cells at the appointed time. We must make an effort to reflect on something related to prayer; for example our sins or the fact that time is passing and we are not doing anything or that death and the tribunal await us and so on. After this sort of impoverished and brief meditation immediately a mood for prayer comes.”
– Elder Ephraim of Arizona, in Counsels from the Holy Mountain
