Father Gabriel’s Prayer Life Web Comic by Nicholas Tamraz

Introducing my first Father Gabriel Orthodox Christian Web Comic! Of course, this web comic is based on my first comic strip of the same name. This web comic contains the quote from Saint Ignatius Brianchaninov:

The time immediately following sleep should, first of all, be spent in prayer. Each morning brings us the pious joy of glorifying God for the Creator’s having allowed us yet again to see His world, so beautifully designed for us. In beginning the day we are beginning a new life, and in life there are so many grounds for temptation and sin that a weak person absolutely cannot do without the help of God, which is acquired only through prayer. And secondly, time should be spent in reading the word of God: it is the book of life, it contains everything we need to know, to do, to hope for. In the words of St. John Chrysostom, it is God’s letter or epistle to mankind. Whoever does not nourish his soul with this celestial gift – starves his soul. Afterwards comes the time for activity, time for work. Everyone has his own duties, his own affairs, his own job, his own diverse needs. But whatever they may be, there is one cardinal rule for all of them: “Be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is,” i.e. at the beginning of each deed ask your-self whether or not it conforms to the will of God. – Saint Ignatius Brianchaninov

Such a lovely quote!

The difference between a comic strip and a web comic is that a comic strip is a cartoons that tells a story within either one or two or three frames. Where a web comic has unlimited frames to tell a more in-depth story. Although my first few web comics will be more short and sweet, look for more in depth web comics in the future.
