Prayer as Infinite Creation

26.00

The more one rubs against the divine energy, the more the veil of the heart is removed. When this energy accumulates, the veil is completely lifted, the deep heart opens and the mind of man finds the place wherein its awesome presentation is performed. The visible world retreats, and the higher spiritual world becomes a tangible reality. The mind ceases to reason and becomes still in extreme attention. The heart is filled with a life-giving reverential fear. The breath contracts and God becomes ‘all in all’.

Description

Information

All that unfolds in the world testifies to its falsehood; it shows the absence of God, but also the hell in this absence. Each person must judge and choose. If a man has a little spiritual wisdom, he will turn to God in a frenzy, without knowing rest. And perhaps through this uprush of desire for the Lord, he will even overtake those who for years have sluggishly trodden the path that leads to Him. Only this madness of love for God can overcome the world that has already gone astray and heal man from paralysis and the pestilence of despondency.

    Spiritually edifying books.

    The book – Prayer As Infinite Creation is for all who yearn a better understanding of how we work in synergy with God through prayer – His gift to His creation.

    Archimandrite Zacharias Zacharou narrative is a beautiful and comprehensive.
    Pages 18 – 19 of the book outline this mystical spiritual union and transformation between God, our creator and His creation.

    The blurb on the back of the book is very succinct in expressing the key components of this life giving transformation.

    ” The more one rubs against the divine energy, the more the veil of the heart is removed. When this energy accumulates, the veil is completely lifted, the deep heart opens and the mind of man finds the place wherein its awesome presentation is performed. The visible world retreats, and the higher spiritual world becomes a tangible reality. The mind ceases to reason and becomes still in extreme attention. The heart is filled with a life-giving reverential fear. The breath contracts and God becomes ‘all in all’.

    I am reminded of psalm 46, verse10

    ” Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
    Nkjv

    This book is the ultimate in prayer- an eye opener for all Orthodox Christians! We had it for our spiritual book club – we planned for 3 sessions but landed up reading it for 6 sessions! A book full of God’s wisdom to put into daily life! Bless Arch Zacharias!

    I thank Father Nephon for introducing me to “Prayer as Infinite Creation.” A great blessing. I have been enlightened and inspired by each page.

    One of the best books I have read

  5. Erin Maria (verified owner)

    ‘Prayer as Infinite Creation’ is a beautiful treatise on living life as a continual prayer. Prayer leads one to the innermost chambers of the soul to stand achingly before God, dying daily, indeed hourly, for love of God. It is the crucible of salvation, the glowing charcoal in the depths of the heart, and the longing to give all for all. The beauty and depth of the theology of Saint Silouan as distilled by Saint Sophrony and accessibly rendered by Archimandrite Zacharias Zacharou could never be overstated. Each succeeding generation brings forth a more generous truth for all who wish to draw near. May God bless us to drink deeply of these words and learn to live them fully in our daily conscious striving to know Him, for prayer that bears fruit can not be a part time effort, but a way of life and constant state of being.

    Excellent, well written and extremely spiritually inspirational the sort of book that you can read again and again
