The Forgotten Prayer (Pearls of Faith)


One day, after St. Ephraim of Katounakia served
the Liturgy, he had a miraculous dream: he saw a multitude of people, wounded and wearing
rags. They called out to him: “Father, father! Truly you have forgotten us!” When he woke up, he asked St. Joseph the Hesychast:
“Did some people give us some prayer lists that I’m not aware of?” The saint replied to him: “No, all the names
are in the church.” St. Ephraim searched, but to no
avail – there was no list that they forgot about. After the next Liturgy, St. Ephraim had the
exact same dream: those poor unfortunate souls cried out to him: “Truly you forgot us,
father!” As soon as he got out of bed, he asked his monastic
brethren again if they forgot a list, and one of them said: “Check the altar table!” St. Ephraim went into the altar, and he picked
up a vessel veil, and sure enough, a list of people they were supposed to pray for fell
out of it. When they prayed for the people found on that
prayer list the next Liturgy, the dreams stopped.

    Note to self. Always pray for the dead. Even if you don't know the person.

    The Holy Virgin knows who I am supposed to pray for and she takes care of them.

    Were the people in the forgotten prayer deceased or alive? I am thinking deceased by the other comments. I may have missed something in the video. Thank you.

    I like these faith based stories, often mixed with folk lore. In these 19th century novels I’m always reading they appear frequently. In book of Anton Chekov long/short stories, notes referred me to back pages where it said “a prosphora is a small round loaf …” In two Checkov stories the relative or visitor offers the loaf to a beloved sick person. I see its the same kind of loaf used at the Eucharist. What a nice tradition. Is this still done to this day?

    Luis Palau said on a broadcast, "when you say "I'll pray for you, DO It!". Your video illustrates that beautifully-the Need for prayers from the body of Christ for one another. So I have followed that counsel the best I know how-I ask Jesus to please remember anyone I forgot in my cycle! Thank you for your moving videos & counsel of holy men & women!

    I once read a story from our days. A doctor was called to a woman who lay dying. When he left his practice a young man approached him, a patient, who wanted to talk to him urgently. The doc said "I have to leave now, but you can come along and we talk in the car." At the house of the dying woman he asked the young man to wait for him in the car and went in. When he came back after the best part of an hour, he said:" I hope you weren't bored too much sitting here all on your own." The young man replied. "Oh, no. I listened to the radio a bit and then I started praying the rosary, knowing you were with a dying person."
    At that point the doc did an unprovoked emergency braking. "You did WHAT?"
    "I prayed the rosary, I'm a Catholic. Is that a problem for you?"
    "No," said the doc,"no, it isn't. It's just… that poor woman had a hard time dying. She kept saying 'if only somebody would pray the rosary with me'. But all her folks had left the Church and nobody knew how to do it."

    I knew the Lord talks to people in dreams. It says so in the book of Job. I've had many dreams from God, but if I repeat them people generally think I'm weird. If only people would believe Him!
