The Green Monks
Are You Already a Monk in Your Heart?
Are You already -- or do you desire to become -- a Man or Woman of prayer?
"Tada gan iarracht." ("Nothing without effort." -Old Gaelic Saying)
The Knights of Prayer Monastic Order is the first of all Christian monastic orders to ever give full monk status to non-resident lay persons (Ordinary Christians as Monks).
It is also the first to give full monk status to women. And one of the first to give full monk status to married persons.
What We Believe:
"See the incense of the Lords intercession and your prayer will rise up with and in His prayer."
The Prayer Foundation and the Knights of Prayer Monastic Order are ministries of S.G. Preston Ministries.

You can become a Lay Monk with our Knights of Prayer Monastic Order while remaining in your own home, job, career, life. You can do so whether you are single, married, male or female.
Historically, this has been known as "Oblate" status. We are the first Christian Religious Order to give full Lay Monk Status to our "Oblates."
