Saint Porphyrios: Turn to Christ

Orthodox Quotes - Saint Porphyrios

“We should refer all our problems, whatever they are, to God, just as we say in the Divine Liturgy that we ‘commend our whole life to Christ our God’. We leave everything to You, O Lord. Whatever You will. Let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
The person who turns to Christ turns everything into prayer. He makes both difficulties and tribulations into prayer. Whatever happens to him, he begins, ‘Lord Jesus Christ…’. Prayer is beneficial for everything, even the simplest things.”

-Saint Porphyrios, Wounded by Love
