Let my prayer rise up

Publié le 5 Mars 2009




Let my prayer rise up', P. Tchesnokov(1877 - 1944)

'Let my prayer rise up to thee as the incense, and let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice.'
Psalm 140, 1-4

This chant is performed on Wednesdays and Fridays during Lent in the liturgy on the consecrated gifts. It expresses the striving of the soul to raise its voice to God.

The Orthodox Church observes four major Lenten periods each year. Of these, the most important and significant is Great Lent preceding Easter and lasting for seven weeks. A Lenten period comes before any of the major feasts of the Church as an opportunity to come into the fullness of the feast and to appreciate the significance of the feast.
