Turning Prayers into Prayer

Fr. Theodore Petrides

We all know that prayer is an important part of the Christian life. Yet, we also have to admit that we pray so infrequently and are not very good at it. This session hopes to encourage us to see prayer as the very heart of our day and to be covetous about our special and sacred time with our Lord.

Fr. Theodore Petrides ​has been a parish priest for twenty-four years, and has served Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Stroudsburg, PA for the past twenty-one. He and Presbytera Cristen have six children and three grandchildren. He regularly travels to the Holy Land and the Holy Mountain as a pilgrim, guide, and speaker, including guiding the OCF Real Break Jerusalem trip last year and, God-willing, next year. He also enjoys jogging and listening to Ancient Faith Radio. He is so grateful to be back again this year with SLI and to serve once again as chaplain.
