“Prayer knocks, Fasting Obtains and Mercy receives. 

St. Peter Chrysologus

I am very excited about the next series of podcasts that I am recording with one of my favorite priests, Fr. Logan Parrish. We are going to discuss this amazing quote by St. Peter Chrysologus: Prayer knocks, Fasting obtains, and mercy receives. The whole quote goes like this:

There are three things, my brethren, by which faith stands firm, devotion remains constant, and virtue endures. They are prayer, fasting, and mercy. Prayer knocks at the door, fasting obtains, and mercy receives. Prayer, mercy, and fasting: these three are one, and they give life to each other.

This will be a 3-part-series as we divide it into three natural parts — beginning today with Prayer and how it is literally our survival kit for life! Next week, we continue with how Fasting obtains, and we then round out the third week with a fascinating discussion on receiving Mercy.

In this episode, we explore the significance of prayer, confident expectation, survival through prayer, and the importance of physical presence in the church, and fellowship in the community. Fr. Logan explains that knocking goes both ways and reminds us of Revelation 3:20. Tune in for inspiring insights to enrich your spiritual journey, especially during Lent.
