The Jesus prayer

17 Best images about ORTHODOXY on Pinterest | Mothers, Byzantine and Jesus prayer

One of the first things I went to work on acquiring when I began exploring Orthodoxy was the Jesus prayer as part of my prayer rule.

“Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, have mercy on me the sinner.”.

I researched it and began praying it. Continually? No. Without ceasing? No. I try and do  not give up in my efforts. The Jesus prayer is used, and has been used, by Christians for centuries. It is the prayer that is used to fulfill the 1 Thessalonians 5:17 ‘…pray without ceasing’- scripture.
