Being Orthodox on Purpose with Fr. Barnabas Powell
Fr. Barnabas Powell joins Hank to discuss his journey from pastoring a Pentecostal church and holding a prominent role in evangelical media ministry to becoming a priest in the Orthodox Church. After years of pursuit, Fr. Barnabas found the timeless truth he was searching for in the ancient faith of the Eastern Orthodox Church and decided to live out his faith daily by being “Orthodox on purpose.” Fr. Barnabas and Hank are both uniquely positioned to discuss the divisions between Eastern and Western Christianity and why it is critical for Christians everywhere to embrace the doctrine of unity taught in the Lord’s high priestly prayer in the face of deeply entrenched tribalism inside and outside of the church today. Topics discussed include: Fr. Barnabas Powell’s background as a pastor in a Pentecostal church and how his Pentecostal background prepared him for the transition to becoming a priest in Orthodoxy (2:45); the popular narrative that we should never call anyone (such as a priest) "Father," and why that is a mistake (4:45); what does it mean to be “Orthodox on purpose?” (7:30); are there Christians outside of Orthodoxy? (14:00); incarnate theology and the significance of a priest, like Fr. Barnabas himself, wearing robes (17:00); the significance of the quote by St. Cyprian: “He can no longer have God for his Father, who has not the church for his mother,” and what it says on the unity of the church (20:15); comparing liturgical practice in the church to a spiritual gymnasium where the disciplines of life in the church strengthen our spirit (25:00); the paradox of disciplining our desires and the misconception of viewing spiritual disciplines, such as fasting, as works done to earn our salvation (29:25); Rejecting RAPTUREMANIA (48:45); the purifying power of pain and the false perception that pain is the ultimate evil in an era of prosperity preaching (52:00); the pursuit of timeless truth and following St. Vincent of Lerins's three rules of antiquity, universality, and consensus (55:50); combating our chronological snobbery to understand the enlightenment of the early church fathers (59:05); addressing problems within Orthodoxy (1:02:05); the difference between a transactional and transformational Christian faith (1:07:20); the significance of developing a dispassionate disposition toward our desires, and how spiritual discipline can help (1:08:35); understanding what the discipline of confession is really about, and the difference between how confession is conducted in the East and the West (1:12:35); why Christianity is Eucharistic at its core and why being grateful is at the heart of what it means to be a Christian (1:16:30); the importance for Christians everywhere to embrace the doctrine of unity taught in the Lord’s high priestly prayer in the face of tribalism inside and outside of the church (1:20:00); and weighing in on the current schism in the Orthodox church today (1:26:20). ----------------------------------- “Hank Unplugged” is Hank Hanegraaff’s audio podcast.

The Prayer of Jesus and the Prayer Rope
(Prayer ropes are available at: https://www.monasteryicons.com/category/prayer-ropes) This video is an introduction to the Prayer of Jesus (the Jesus prayer, Hesychasm, the Holy Name of Jesus) and the use of the prayer rope (chotki or komboskini). “I felt there was no happier person on earth than I, and I doubted if there could be greater and fuller happiness in the kingdom of heaven. The whole outside world seemed to me full of charm and delight. Everything drew me to love and thank God: people, trees, plans, and animals. I saw them all as my kinfolk; I found on all of them the magic of the Name of Jesus.” These are the words of an unknown Russian peasant who wandered as a pilgrim through 19th century Russia, with only his Bible, his rosary, and some dried bread, visiting monasteries, shrines, and churches, seeking to know the way to fulfill Saint Paul’s exhortation to “pray without ceasing.” The account of his spiritual journey is immortalized in the book “The Way of a Pilgrim,” in which we discover how he learned the Jesus Prayer – “Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me” – and how this prayer became the center of his life. From apostolic times to the present day, Christians throughout the world have experienced for themselves the blessing, protection, and presence of Christ that can be found through repeated invocation of Holy Name of Jesus. This simple prayer, more than any other, could right be considered Christian meditation. It is known as interior prayer, the prayer of the heart, or among the Greek fathers as “hesychasm,” which simply means “the silence,” referring to the inner peace that those who pray the Jesus Prayer can experience in their hearts and minds. The Jesus Prayer has been the center of the spiritual lives of countless saints in the Church – the fathers of the Egyptian desert, great fathers of the Church like Saint John Chrysostom, well-known saints of the Greek Orthodox Church such as Saint Nectarios of Aegina, and the most beloved saints of the Russian Orthodox Church: Saint Seraphim of Sarov and Saint John of Kronstadt. Saint John Chrysostom: "Abide constantly with the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, so that the heart swallows the Lord and the Lord the heart, and the two become one." Saint Nectarios: "Seek God every day, but in your heart, and not outside of it." Saint Seraphim: "Only those who have interior prayer and watch over their souls receive the gifts of grace." Saint John of Kronstadt: "In the Name of Jesus Christ dwells Christ Himself, wholly, His soul and body, united to the Godhead." Devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus, and meditation upon it, can also be found in Western Christianity. Outstanding examples of saints who practiced and preached this are Saint Augustine, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, Saint Bernardine of Siena, and Saint Richard Rolle. The more common form of this prayer in the West was simply the name of Jesus, repeated singly, or in groups of two or three repetitions: Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. The Jesus Prayer is not limited to monks and nuns only, and has been used to great benefit by lay people of all classes. [Saint Ignatius Brianchaninov: "The Jesus Prayer is suitable for all people of God without exception, whether monks or lay people. It is a safe way for beginners, that is open to all." To keep the mind from wandering and to keep count of their repetitions of the Jesus prayer, it is customary to use a rosary known as a prayer rope, which is commonly made of knotted wool or satin. In fact, the terms used for prayer ropes in Russian - “chotki” - and in Greece - komboskini -- simply mean knot string, or string of knots. Monastery Icons now offers a selection of high quality prayer ropes. These are hand made by Orthodox Christian nuns in a convent near Athens, Greece. The sisters use a traditional method of intricately weaving strands of wool or satin, with their minds at prayer while their hands are at work. The 100-knot and 50-knot prayer ropes are favorites for private prayer at home or in church. The 33-knot rosary bracelet and the 12-knot finger rosary are convenient ways of literally having the Prayer of Jesus at hand -- helpful reminders to pray without ceasing, as Saint Paul exhorted us. 3

Jesus Prayer
Jesus Prayer - Prayer of the Heart The Jesus Prayer is very simple: "Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner," The Jesus Prayer according to numerous Church Fathers is "essential" to our spiritual growth. The Jesus Prayer proclaims our faith and humbles us by asking mercy for our sinfulness. The Jesus Prayer is thought to be as old as the Church itself. The Jesus Prayer, says Metropolitan Anthony Bloom, “more than any other,” helps us to be able to “stand in God’s presence.” This means that the Jesus Prayer helps us to focus our mind exclusively on God with “no other thought” occupying our mind but the thought of God. At this moment when our mind is totally concentrated on God, we discover a very personal and direct relationship with Him. Jesus Christ - the Power In the Name The Jesus Prayer's power comes from the use of our Lord's Name, Jesus Christ, Son of God. It is a confession of our faith. ...read more about the power of the name Jesus Christ Jesus Prayer requires Humility The Jesus Prayer in its practice assumes you are a regular participant in the worship services of the Church, in her Sacraments and aware of your sinfulness. Be sure to consult with and follow the advice of your spiritual Father. Humility is a prerequisite for all prayer, especially the Jesus Prayer. Jesus Prayer Has Two Functions The Jesus Prayer has two important purposes. The first is worship as with all prayer. The second is a discipline to help our soul gain control our overactive brains and create stillness so the Holy Spirit can work through us and help us live the virtues in union with God. Jesus Prayer Has Three Stages in Practice The Jesus Prayer involves three stages of progress in its practice. You begin praying the Jesus Prayer by repeating the words of the prayer out loud or at least moving the lips. This is called verbal prayer. After some time saying of the Jesus Prayer becomes silent or mental and is repeated only in the mind. This is mental prayer. Finally, the Jesus Prayer becomes a continuous prayer in the heart, the inner core of our being. We begin with vocal prayer and do not force the move to mental prayer. This will happen naturally when you are ready. Jesus Prayer in Practice In praying the Jesus Prayer, our holy Fathers tell us, we say it over and over hundreds of times as part of our daily prayer rule. It is best to add the Jesus Prayer to your morning prayers as this is when the mind is the quietest. Begin by saying the Jesus Prayer verbally focusing on each word. Repeat the Jesus Prayer continually for 15 minutes at first and then expand to 30 minutes. You will experience the challenge of dealing with your thoughts, the tendency for you mind to wander. Attention when praying the Jesus Prayer is important. Be sincere in your prayer and repeat it with contrition. Praying the Jesus Prayer is that simple! Jesus Prayer is A Long and Difficult Path Do not be fooled by its simplicity. The Jesus Prayer practice is a difficult task and like all ascetic practices it requires commitment of time, patience and perseverance. Remember the Jesus Prayer's aim is not to obtain a calmness or any kind of spiritual experience, but to become in communion with God and participate in His grace. Jesus Prayer - When To Pray The Jesus Prayer will eventually be prayed throughout the day and when this happens, you will find that your life changes. Jesus Prayer is Not a Form of Eastern Meditation The praying of the Jesus Prayer should not be confused with methods used in Eastern Yoga or meditation. In praying the Jesus Prayer as in all Orthodox Prayer we are seeking a relationship with a personal God based on faith and love.

Eastern Orthodox - Spontak - My Fiance became an Orthodox Christian Holy Saturday 2013
May 04, 2013 -- Orthodox Holy Saturday Michele was Chrismated and received her first Holy Communion as an Orthodox Christian in the Orthodox Church. +God grant her many years! St. Peter and St. Paul Orthodox Church A parish of the Orthodox Church in America Diocese of the Midwest in the greater Chicago area. 6980 County Line Road, Burr Ridge, Illinois 60527 Chrismation: Chrismation (sometimes called confirmation is the mystery by which a baptized person is granted the gift of the Holy Spirit through anointing with Holy Chrism. It is normally given immediately after baptism as part of the same service, but is also used to receive lapsed members of the Orthodox Church. As baptism is a person's participation in the death and resurrection of Christ, so Chrismation is a person's participation in the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. A baptized and chrismated Orthodox Christian is a full member of the Church, and may receive the Eucharist regardless of age. The creation of Chrism may be accomplished by any bishop at any time, but usually is done only once a year, often when a synod of bishops convenes for its annual meeting. (Some autocephalous churches get their chrism from others.) Anointing with it substitutes for the laying-on of hands described in the New Testament, even when an instrument such as a brush is used. Holy Communion: The Eucharist is at the center of Orthodox Christianity. In practice, it is the partaking of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ in the midst of the Divine Liturgy with the rest of the church. The bread and wine are believed to become the genuine Body and Blood of the Christ Jesus through the operation of the Holy Spirit. The Orthodox Church has never described exactly how this occurs, or gone into the detail that the Roman Catholic Church has in the West. Communion is given only to baptized and chrismated Orthodox Christians who have prepared by fasting, prayer and confession. The priest will administer the Gifts with a spoon, called a "cochlear", directly into the recipient's mouth from the chalice. From baptism young infants and children are carried to the chalice to receive Holy Because of the Orthodox understanding of man's fallen nature in general those who wish to commune prepare themselves in a way that reflects man in paradise. First, the individual prepares by having his confession heard and the prayer of repentance read over him by a priest. The person will increase their prayer rule adding the prescribed prayers in preparation for communing. Finally, the person will fast completely from food and drink from the evening of the previous day (usually sunset on Saturday if communing on Sunday).

Saint Theophan the Recluse on Prayer
This is from one of Saint Theophan the Recluse's homilies on prayer, here's an excerpt: "I will give here three very simple instructions: 1. always begin praying with at least a little preparation; 2. do not pray carelessly, but with attention and feeling; and 3. do not go on to ordinary work immediately after prayer. Even if prayer is common for us, it always demands preparation. What is more common for those who can read and write than reading and writing? However, sitting down to read or write, we do not immediately begin, but we calm ourselves before beginning, at least to the point that we can read or write in a peaceful state. When your mind does wander during prayer, bring it back. When it wanders again, bring it back again. Each and every time that you read a prayer while your thoughts are wandering (and consequently you read it without attention and feeling,) then do not fail to read it again. when you finish your prayers, do not immediately go off to any sort of work, but remain and think at least a little about what you have just finished and what now lies before you. If some feeling was given to you during prayer, keep it after you pray."
