Prayer Corner

My Prayer Corner

Orthodox Mother had a reader’s request to share photos of our prayer space (corner) because as a new Orthodox person, the reader didn’t have a clue on what one looked like, etc.  To assist Orthodox Mother’s dear reader, I post a photo of my own prayer corner, a term used loosely since it isn’t really a “corner” but a wall.

In case you are unable to see the icons clearly, they are as follows:

Top row (l – r):  The Holy Theotokos, Christ, Rublev’s Trinity

Middle row (l – r):  St. Athanasius the Great, a photograph of Blessed Fr. Sophrony, icon of Blessed Fr. Sophrony & St. Silouan the Athonite, blessed photo of the Weeping icon of St. Anna

Under shelf (l – r):  St. Xenia of St. Petersburg, The Holy Theotokos & All the North American Saints

Pop on over to Orthodox Mother’s blog and help out her dear reader.

  1. Hi Philippa,

    I just read Frederica Mathewes-Green’s Facing East, and learned about those prayer corners. Very interesting.
    I have an icon of Christ, holding up a Bible with a verse on it, on an East wall in one of our smaller rooms. I had an icon of the resurrection, but can’t find it.

    Hope you’re doing well.

  2. Sorry it took so long to get around here. It’s lovely and seems very inviting to focus on prayer. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Since Jesus is the Heart of My Home I have His Picture(The Sacred Heart of Jesus) above the mantle of my fireplace , surrounded by a grapevine wreath with lights all around it. Beneath are all my Holy Icons of the Holy Theotoklos and a blessed photo of the Weeping Icon of St Anna , It is the first place I go in the morning, through the day and before bed. I think any place in your home where you can go to pray and meditate without good.

    I have a friend who uses her walk in closet as a prayer space. God Bless us all,

  4. And my prayer space is lying quietly in bed and remembering all of my family and then my friends.
