A priest sent us this wonderful bit of patristic nectar and we thought we would pass it on:

Prayer is not a natural property of fallen man.  This is why we have a commandment to pray.  We are commanded by God to do, not natural but supernatural things.  We do not have a commandment to sleep, to drink, to eat, because these are natural activities, but we do have a commandment to pray, because prayer is a supernatural activity.
-Archimandrite Zacharias of the Holy Mountain

We pray that God leads all of us to prayer, especially during these difficult times.
