The Jesus Prayer

The Jesus Prayer is a simple prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.”

The tradition of the Jesus Prayer goes back to the “prayer of the mind,” recommended by the ancient monks of the Egyptian desert. It was continued as the “prayer of the heart” in Byzantine Hesychasm, a monastic system that seeks to achieve divine quietness.

There are many ways to approach this ancient and simple form of prayer. Here Canon Robin Morrison shares a little about the prayer and then leads us in a guided practice. We pray it is a practice that blesses you.
