Cell Phones vs. Prayer Ropes

What would happen if we treated our Prayer Rope like we treat our cell phone?
Natalya Mihailova | 16 October 2014

How can this be?

What if we carried it around with us?
What if we went through it several times a day?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we used it to receive messages more clearly and reliably?
What if we treated it like we couldn’t live without it?
What if we gave it to kids as a gift, and taught them how to use it?
What if we used it when we traveled?
What if we used it in case of emergency?

And one more thing:

Unlike our cell phone, we don’t have to worry about our Prayer Rope being disconnected – the bill has already been paid.

It makes one wonder: Where are my priorities?

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
