How can you improve your spiritual life? Easy! Set up your own prayer center in your home! You will need is an empty space, a table or bureau top. If you have a corner, purchase a corner shelf. This is very easy to install and not expensive.
The icons you should have in your prayer center:
An Icon of Jesus
An Icon of the Theotokos
An Icon of your Patron Saint
Any Additional Icons like the Guardian Angel
Then begin and end your day with a blessing from our Lord where we all can focus privately as God on directs us to do.

Orthodox Christians believe that an iconographer's hand is guided by God. That is why we say that icons are written and not painted. Tradition states that the very first icons were written by St. Luke the Evangelist. Some of these original icons are located on Mt. Athos.
