First Hour Prayer

O Christ the True Light, which enlightens and sanctifies every one coming in to the world, let the light of Your countenance be signed on us, that in it we may see the unapproachable Light: and guide our steps to the doing of Your commandments, through the prayers of Your most pure Mother and all Your saints.  Amen.

Daily Readings

"When you pray, try to let the prayer reach your heart; in other words, it is necessary that your heart should feel what you are talking about in your prayer, that it should wish for the blessing for which you are asking.... Observe, during prayer, whether your heart is in accord with that which you are saying." - St. John of Kronstadt

Sayings From The Church Fathers

One must by every means strive to preserve peace of soul and not to be disturbed by others; for this, one must in every way strive to restrain anger and by means of attentiveness to keep the mind and heart from improper feelings...If, however, it is impossible not to be disturbed, then at least one must strive to restrain the tongue, according to the Psalmist: 'I was troubled, and spoke not' (Ps. 76:5).

- St. Seraphim of Sarov, from Spiritual Instructions no. 25, Little Russian Philokalia Vol. 1; St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood pg. 43
