prayers for every need and situation



Prayer Request





There is no greater work than that of prayer for one leading the Religious Life. Members of the Order of the Most Holy Mary Theotokos promise to live a life of prayer. Prayer unites each member with the Order and links the Community with all those in need. Indeed, prayer is the greatest gift one can give to another.





Prayer


Prayer is an offering of praise, petition, and thanksgiving. Prayer opens the doors of Heaven and places us in the throne room of God. Prayer offers the soul the opportunity to once again meet and touch its Lover and Creator in a mystical way. Prayer is a selfless act, as we seek in it the will of God through Christ Jesus. In it we can find contentment, peace, tears, joy, and union with God. Through prayer we seek wholeness, healing and a desire only to love God.


It has been the privilege of monastic communities for centuries to pray for and on behalf of God's kingdom on earth, the Church, and all others in need. Members of the Order of the Most Holy Mary Theotokos continue this tradition by way of the Divine Office and treasure this responsibility. Our primary work is the Work of God. To pray for a world that can not or will not pray for itself.


Please fill in the form on our Contact Us page to send your prayer request to the Order of the Most Holy Mary Theotokos. Or, you may simply send an email to our Bishop-Abbot at: DomRobert@osst-abbey.org Your request will go out to all members of the Community and will become a part of our daily intercessions. Please provide us with your first name and some details of your prayer need.


We are honored to join you in prayer.


PRAYER FOR MONASTIC ORDERS AND VOCATIONS


O Lord Jesus Christ, you became poor for our sake, that we might be made rich through your poverty: Guide and sanctify, we pray, those whom you call to follow you under the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, that by their prayer and service they may enrich your Church, and by their life and worship may glorify your Name for you reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
