Can you explain what you are talking about?

Do you mean lent? Lent is much more then just 40 days of prayer.

There are many cycles of 40 days in Orthodoxy.  Lent, Advent, days of praying for someone who fell asleep in the Lord, days before baptizing someone born.  All have their cycle of prayers as well.

He perhaps is speaking of that attempt of evangelicals in recent years to create something akin to lent.

I believe this will shed a little light on the request: http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,50328.msg892313.html#msg892313

Is that what Lent is? The 40 days of prayer.


In what context did you discover this term 40 days of prayer? The way you phrase the question is very strange. Might I make a suggestion to you? Have you considered writing more then one sentence in a post in order to better convey your thoughts on a subject?

I think you begin by asking Jesus,Mary,and a Saint to intervene for you like submitting a prayer request. Then you join in the church's prayer for 40 days.

By leaving the Internet and attending services. And you thought, how?

I haven't heard of such thing and would be surprised in anyone here has. Who told you about such thing or did you invented it by myself?

You should really start attending services. And dropping that stupid avatar also wouldn't be harmful.

If you wish to continue to participate in this section then you need to actually interact appropriately with the questions you ask. This section is reserved for actual discussion of Liturgical practices of the Orthodox Church. Several people have tried to give you the benefit of the doubt and asked you questions in order to help understand how your OP deals with Orthodox Liturgy. Please be more specific in your question (and use more then one vague sentence) to help us answer your question.
