Illumined Path: Blessed With Christ’s Presence

From “Life Transfigured: A Journal of Orthodox Nuns,” published by the Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration, in Ellwood City, Pa.:

Illumined PathAll of us can offer everything we do to God, recognize that we can do nothing without Him, and then be blessed with Christ’s presence as we move through our day. Try saying simply, “Lord be with me!” or “Lord help me to do this task to Your glory!” or “Lord have mercy!” before doing anything whether it be starting the dinner dishes or sitting down to check your email. Then say, “Thank you, God,” when you have finished. Desiring that He be with us throughout the day, talking with God will become a habit and our relationship with Him will begin to deepen.

Illumined Path, providing reflections on finding Christ in our everyday lives, is a ministry of St. Elia the Prophet Orthodox Christian Church in Akron, Ohio.
