Prayers by the Lake, St. Nikolai of Ochrid and Zica


Plowmen, it is not your plowing that matters

but the Lord who watches.

Singers, it is not your singing that matters

but the Lord who listens.



Sleepers, it is not your sleeping that matters

but the Lord who wakens.

It is not the pools of water in the rocks around the lake that matter

but the lake itself.
