A Prayerful Church

 

The Coptic Orthodox Church teaches its children to " pray without ceasing " just like St Paul asked us to do in 1  Thessalonians 5:17. The church uses the Agpeya ( book of hours ) and has a heavenly Divine Liturgy consisting of Bible readings , prayers and praises. The Liturgy is a journey towards heaven , ending with unity with the Lord Jesus Christ Himself through the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
