The Jordanville Prayer Book is the king of Orthodox prayer books. Contains a dozens of acathists, canons, preparation for Eucharist, everyday prayers, and others. It's also a very attractive prayer book, with an beautiful front cover and gold-leaf pages like a Bible.If you are Orthodox, Eastern Catholic, or simply interested in expanding your prayer life or learning more of Eastern Christian spirituality, you need to obtain this prayer book! Peace.
I've used a couple other prayer books over the years, but the Jordanville Prayer Book is by far my preferred one. While I really can't say the others lack the same humbling prayers that position us in our proper context as sinners before a merciful and loving God, the prayers in this book seem more penitent, more self-emptying than the others I've used. The somewhat archaic or elevated English translation can be a small awkward at first, but over time the prayers become very natural and the language more reverent, as is appropriate. If you are newly Orthodox or an inquirer, I highly recommend this prayer book, but, as in all matters concerning your spiritual life, check with your spiritual father and follow his advice.
This book has been around for decades with a few new, improved editions. It is the standard from which other Russian and other Orthodox prayer books test to emulate. It is loved by a lot of faithful Orthodox Christians. These prayers become a true blessing in one's life with consistent use. (This recommendation by an Orthodox priest.)
I search it provides structure and content important for prayer. Before buying the book, my prayers seemed rather empty and disorganized. With it, I can search inspiration for I wish to say from my own heart. Has been very useful in maintaining my prayer life in the morning and evening.
I use other prayer books at home usually, but I carry this one in my backpack every day. I usually don't even have a min to read it, but it provides amazing comfort and a holy presence for me as if I were carrying an icon or if an old mate were coming along to work or my university is very well-made and a perfectly little size. It includes some of my most beloved prayers.
Transitioning from traditional Catholic to Orthodox, this prayer book suggested by an Orthodox priest. Without specific directions about every small thing, it's simple to understand "morning prayers' vespers and night prayers; simple to obtain started on some level. This is from a monastery so there are fresh words and so on to look up, but as a beginner, I search this prayer book so far easier than the traditional Catholic Breviary (the 3-volume set), but then Iam a beginner here. Which is why this is an perfect prayer book for a beginner.
This prayer book includes the full series of Orthodox morning and evening prayers but also provides a nice size book for all of the recommended preparatory readings prior to Holy Communion. I travel often and the book easily fits into my purse so that I can read the morning prayers at the airport or on the plane waiting for takeoff for those early morning though the translation does include "thy" rather than "your" it is not archaic and readily understood by today's standards.
This is a attractive prayer book, exceptional quality including gold-gilded pages. It is made by the Orthodox Church but would certainly be useful for Protestants and Roman Catholics as well who were seeking a deeper and more meaningful prayer life; we all pray to the same Trinity. The font is huge which I appreciate as my eyes are not as young as they once were. I am Antiochian Orthodox, and actually prefer my jurisdictions English translation better (which is closer to Elizabethan English related to KJV) to the ROCOR (I assume) more modern translation. Also, if you are in another jurisdiction, you need to substitute the names of your Patriarch, Metropolitan and Bi when praying for them, but that is something well known to all Orthodox Christians. Also, there is certainly no problem for praying for all the Patriarchs and clergy of all jurisdictions.I tend to use the Antiochian prayers on my Android device as they are always with me and are my favored translation style, but I wanted something with larger font than the physical Antiochian Prayer Book has (they're all basically the same prayers) for my Matins & Vespers (morning and evening) prayers. This prayer book does not seek to "speed things up" but rather encourages spending the time with God in communion of the heart by providing a wealth of prayers for Matins and Vespers, as well as other e book itself is of heirloom quality; it will I hope be a treasure for one of my children.
It is very inspiring prayer book. I had another the common prayer book, which was used at the Episcopal churches. But I seldom used it.But this common prayer book I use it to pray everyday. Personally, I love the KJV bible better, and this one is exact what I am looking is common prayer book uses in UK, so we pray for the Queen and the royal families as well.Unfortunately, when I got this book, which already has a split inside the book. Since I love the contents, I hold y God tender mercy be always us, Amen!
For students of the Anglican Communion, Episcopal History, or just lovers of fine art--illuminated manuscripts--this book is a treasure. While it is not a complete, authorized ver of the Book of Common Prayer, it includes most services and prayers. I first saw one of these books in the book at Westminster Abby and was "blown away." For the art work alone, it is a treasure. As a compliment to our Anglican heritage, it is amazing. I have bought several copies ([email protected]#$%! were still in print) for friends, Anglicans and not. This series also includes: the Gospels; Psalms, and a little section of the Old Testament. You will not be disappointed! Peace!!
This an author that cannot be complimented to the degree she deserves. She just doesn't written from mere knowledge, but true experience. Her writings ( both nonfiction and fiction are not mere writings.... but channelingAmong the best in her field ... I highly recommend her.
An overlooked subject in the occult...prayer. This is a nice collection of Demonic prayers. As another reviewer pointed out, the author is a practitioner not just an author. I have nothing but respect for Ms. Connolly, her work and her workings.
Prayer is often neglected in terms of word count when compared to spellcraft in modern Pagan literature, even though a lot of of the books in this genre are supposedly religious titles. Perhaps that it because few of those titles suggest alternatives to folding your hands and begging the divine for help. Connolly presents numerous outside the box activities here, all perfectly suited to Daemonolators. They are sure to shock a newbie or two!
I took a lot of notes throughout reading this book, and I realized that I need to create prayer a higher priority in my life. The sections about Righteousness and Grace were very eye-opening, as well as the differences in having faith and hope. I believe that I can confidently go before God and create my petitions known. Thank you for this book!
I search this book to be inspirational. Part of the title "...Bring Calm & Peace" seems very apropos. But also, in a subtle method the prayers encourages ncerning a two star review saying the prayers were actually "quotes from the bible". This is incorrect. Click the "Look Inside" on the webpage and read some of the prayers. Do you see any quotes from the bible?
Once again an overall amazing book on guidance on how to pray I cant say no more you'll have to read it to ancis jonah has a amazing understanding of the word of God and explains it to the T.
I was looking for a "spiritual" prayer book not quotes from the bible. If you are a church type person and wish psalms and verses from the bible then this may meet your needs. I believe in a Higher Power, God, and The Universe and desired a prayer book that reflects this belief. Yes, I found a attractive prayer book called "Uplifting Prayer To Light Your Way" by Sonia Choquette. Hope this is of some assistance to your. God Bless
i love to pray on this prayer application and read and pray fo others on this application as well i pray for more people to fine this application cause this prayer application helps me alot it can support alot of other people as well once i can reopen my prayer application back up im miss it for awhile now i cant obtain into it and im very sad about that i need my and i pray that i obtain my prayer application back very soon i miss praying on my prayer very much i rate this application with 5 stars up i love it so please bring my prayer application back up to me pleas
I like this app,I want there we're reminders to pray,but that is the only reason I gave it 4 stars,other than that,it is an awesome app. LOVE the fact that there is really calming awesome melody that can be played in the background while you pray,it makes me even more peaceful and calms me down,and I feel like I am more connected with god because I'm more peaceful when I pray
The Bible in so a lot of ways reminds us thst prayer is the greatest weapon of the Christian. Not only that, but it's also one of the greatest ways of communicating with God. Through this Application we can intercede for each other, which is powerful. I give God all of the praises, glory, and honor and ask that He bless the creators of this App.
Basicially a very watered-down social media app, but with prayers. You can like and share other prayers and post your own. There is also some everyday prayers to pray already programmed onto the app. All in all, not a horrible app, but if you are getting it for the use of devotions, and using the prayers on the app, I'd go somewhere different. Also I am beautiful sure I was the only millienial ever to use this
I have to say when i found this application i was extremely pleased. However , i can only begin the everyday prayer. The morning, evening and night prayers will not open. i can obtain some of the food prayers as well. It is for that reason that as much as i would like to be able to give 5 stars i can't, can only give 3. Fix this glitch and will be satisfied to give the 5 stars...
Had to reinstall on fresh ver of my phone, does not connect to enter prayers or view others. Have loved this application for over a year now before this. Help! Still unable to obtain into the website for posting prayers or reading others. Claims issues with internet. I hope you can resolve this issue.
