Intercessory Prayer


Dear Students and Friends,

Prayer is an integral part of Great Lent. Not only do we pray to the Lord, we ask the Saints to pray for us, especially at this time of year.

Have you ever wondered why Orthodox Christians ask the Saints for intercession? Or why we pray for the forgiveness and salvation of those who have already passed away? On the Come Receive the Light podcast, Dr. David C. Ford, a professor of church history at St. Tikhon's Orthodox Theological Seminary, explains why these practices are Biblical and fully part of the ancient Christian faith.

Listen now.
