Holy Prince Vladimir the Great

Lord God! Look from the sky and behold. And visit your garden. And do what your right hand has planted - these new people, whose heart you turned to the truth to know you, the true God. Look at your church, which I have created, your unworthy servant, in the name of the ever-virgin Mother of God who gave birth to you. If anyone will pray in this church, then hear his prayer, for the sake of the prayer of the Most Pure Theotokos.

Word of Archimandrite Gideon (Charon) when he was named Bishop Makarovsky

The monastic prayer for health or for the repose of souls is always to help the common man in the world. After all, the Lord himself said: “... where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them” (Matthew 18: 19-20).
