Moscow, April 28, Interfax – Twelve percent of Russian citizens pray every day, according to a poll, conducted by the Sreda and Public Opinion pollsters.

One fifth of Russian citizens aged over 60 and one fourth of those who have health problems pray on a daily basis.

Twenty-two percent of Orthodox Christians and one tenth of those who identify themselves as Muslims pray every day in this country.

Education and income have no impact on citizens’ praying habits, the pollsters said.

The poll was conducted among 1,500 respondents in 43 regions in April.

…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.
