Sixth Hour Prayer
O God and Lord of Powers, Creator of all that exists, Who in Your great compassion and ineffable mercy sent down Your Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, for the salvation of our race, and by His precious Cross tore up the handwriting of our sins, and confounded the principalities and powers of darkness: O Master who love mankind, accept from us sinners these prayers of thanksgiving, and deliver us from every destructive and dark fall into sin, and from all the visible and invisible enemies that seek to harm us. Nail down our flesh to the fear of You, and do not incline our hearts to thoughts or words of wickedness, but wound our souls with Your love, that looking toward You and guided by Your Light, we may behold Your unapproachable and eternal Light, and may send up unceasing confession and thanksgiving to You, the Unoriginate Father, with Your Only-begotten Son, and Your most holy, good and life-creating Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Observe, during prayer, whether your heart is in accord with that which you are saying." - St. John of KronstadtAbout Prayer

We are living in an exciting era in history with the proliferation of amazing technological advances in communications. What was unheard of even as recent as five years agois now possible. With the creation of hand held computers, PDA's iPods and iPhones, and MP3 Players, to name a few, people are communicating in a new and instanteous manner. While it may be argued that this technology is impersonal, none-the-less, it offers the Church a tremendous opportunity to inform and inspire.
