Prayer Requests

The faithful, as soon as they wake and are risen, before they betake themselves to their work shall pray to God, and so let them hurry to their work. But if there should be instruction in the word, he shall put this first, to go and hear the word of God for the strengthening of his soul. And they shall be zealous to go too the assembly where the Spirit abounds.

— St. Hippolytus of Rome, Apostolic Tradition 3:31
