A beautiful and whimsical poster reminding us of the vigilant prayers of the living, and of the Saints offered for our protection as well as the care of our guardian angel, the Panagia and the Lord Himself. This is the "Unseen Protection" which is ever present unto us, repelling the assaults of adversaries, driving far away from us the dark countenances of evil demons and guiding us unto salvation!
"And grant unto us, O God, a watchful mind, a chaste thought, a sober heart, a sleep gentle and free from every satanic illusion. Raise us up at the time of prayer firmly grounded in Thy judgments. All the night long grant us a doxology, that we may hymn and bless and glorify Thy most honorable and majestic name!" ~ Prayer to our Lord Jesus Christ from Compline
Protection and unity. This is a beautiful, comforting icon that expresses the urgent needs of our times: the Lord is on top raising the dead, the church is praying in heaven and on earth. The angels are warring for us. YES! I have placed this icon in my Bible.
The icon provides an excellent reminder of the participation of the Lord and the Saints in the salvation of humanity and the grace imparted to us through prayer.
