Jesus Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, Have Mercy On Me!

On the Jesus Prayer

The practice of the Jesus Prayer is simple.
Stand before the Lord with attention in the heart,
and call to him:
'Lord Jesus Christ,Son of God,have mercy on me a sinner!'
The essential part of this is not the words,
but faith, contrition, and self-surrender to the Lord.
With these feelings one can stand before the Lord
even without any words, and it will still be prayer.
Bishop Theophan the Recluse
