Product Info:   “[...T]he hundred Prayers by the Lake [were] penned in 1922 as Bishop Nikolai gazed over the azure waters from his picturesque monastery on the shore of Lake Ohrid in southern Yugoslavia. These prayers were destined to become one of Bishop Nikolai’s most popular and deeply loved works, and when they first appeared in print they were greeted with exceptional enthusiasm--as is evidenced by the initial review of the book by Fr. Justin Popovich at that time (translated and published in this volume[...]). The prayers contained in this volume[...]are more than simple supplications to God by Bishop Nikolai. They are philosophical and theological explorations of the relationships between eternity and time, heaven and earth, life and death, reality and illusion, Creator and creation, God and man.”
