Upon making a request for a Moleben, Pannykhida, or similar service, it is customary in the Russian Orthodox Church to bring an offering to God and His Church from the fruit of one’s labor.
...God comes into our lives when we invite Him with all our being, opening the gates of our heart from the inside. He will not come uninvited... The moment you are willing to give over your whole self to God- surrendering your life, your loved ones, your health, your victories and defeats- He will come to you and help you in ways you never dreamed possible.Fr. Vojislav Dosenovich
