Home > Orthodox poetry > 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.
