A PRAYER

+

O say not that your humble prayer

Cannot ascend the heights of heaven!

Believe that like the fragrant incense

It’s pleasing to the Heavenly King.

+

And when you pray do not be wasteful

With words, but with your soul entire

Apply your faith and strive to realize

That He is near and hears your prayer.

+

May love for the Divine Creator

Within your soul burn ever brightly,

As burn the flames of the lampadas

Before the sacred face of icons.

– K. R.
