The icon corner is a very special part of an Orthodox Christian home. It is a "little church" where we are free of all earthly care just like when we go to Divine Liturgy on Sundays. We're encouraged to stand before our Icon corner and pray and meditate in the morning and in the evening or any time you are able to do so.

Why Do We Use Incense in the Greek Orthodox Church
We find the use of incense as far back as the Old Testament, such as Psalm 141:2, “Let my prayer be set forth before you as incense; and the lifting up of my hands be as an evening sacrifice.”

When we are humble, we judge ourselves and not our neighbor. The spiritual fathers of the church teach us that we need to be hard on ourselves and easy on others. This is true humility; this is true repentance. We are invited to master this humility and repentance during Lent. - Archimandrite Vassilios Papavassiliou

From the moment you judge someone and do not look at things spiritually, dozens of spirits gather and we are weakened. And when we are weakened, we are sleepy or have insomnia. - Elder Paisios

"It is of great significance if there is a person who truly prays in a family. prayer attracts God's grace and all the members of the family feel it, even those whose hearts have grown cold. pray always." Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica

In Defense of the Holy Fire. Deacon Giorgi Maximov
The miracle of the Holy Fire! Each year on Orthodox Holy Saturday, the Patriarch of Jerusalem enters the altar of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and "prays with tears for the sins of the people done in ignorance, raiding his hands on high, doing this three times; those around him do the same thing." A flame ignites in a niche by God's will. The Patriarch lights a candle from it, and the Deacons light additional candles from the Patriarchs. The fire is passed to all. Christ is Risen!

Marriage and Possible Alternativees: The Pursuit of Wholeness and Holiness
Orthodoxy teaches that marriage is an act of sacrificial love, a representation of Christ and His Church. Not only do bride and bridegroom become king and queen of their home, priest and presbytera to their family, but they also willingly accept crowns of martyrdom in their love for God and one another. We must not neglect to prepare our children for the possibility of marriage, so that if they marry, they may live in love and harmony with their spouses and live lives well-pleasing to God.

Lord, I call upon Thee, hear me. Hear me, O Lord. Let my prayer arise in Thy sight as incense. And let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice. Hear me, O Lord. (Psalm 141:1-2).

If you want a better priest, then pray for the one you have". Every priest carries not only the burden of his own sins, which are countless, but also the sins of everyone whom God has entrusted to his spiritual care. At the Dread Judgement Seat of Christ, priests will have much to answer to.

St. Silouan the Athonite: "Unbelief Proceeds From Pride"
St. Silouan the Athonite - Unbelief proceeds from pride. The proud person believes he will know everything with his mind and from science, but the knowledge of God is impossible for him, because God is known by the revelation of the Holy Spirit. God reveals Himself to humble souls. To these the Lord shows His works, which are unknowable to the mind.

"Orthodox worship and devotional piety is best understood when it is approached from the standpoint of Christened temple (and synagogal) worship. Christ did not come to abolish the law and the prophets, but to fulfill them, and it is in him that we understand the fulfilled worship of Orthodox Christianity—an icon of the heavenly worship." Commentary at link by Gabe Martini.
