PRAYING THE JESUS PRAYER
“Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.” This very simple prayer was developed in the deserts of Egypt and Palestine during the early centuries of Christian Faith, and has been practiced in Catholic and Orthodox churches ever since. It is a prayer inspired by St. Paul's exhortation to "pray without ceasing" (1 Thes. 5:17) and its purpose is to tune one's inner attention to the presence of the Lord. In "Praying the Jesus Prayer" Frederica Mathewes-Green, one of today's most respected voices on Orthodoxy in America, introduces you to: the history and meaning of this popular but rarely understood method of talking to God; what it means to really pray with both heart and mind; and how to get started incorporating the Jesus Prayer into your life.
