Faith of the Universal Syrian (Syriac) Orthodox Church - XI

Prayer and Worship

The Syrian Orthodox church members do not worship idols.

The pictures of Jesus, St. Mary and other Saints are displayed in the Churches and houses.

The devotee faces east during prayer.

The laity is expected to pray twice a day (morning and evening) while the monks in monasteries should pray seven times.

Only canonical prayers can be used in public worship.
