"As you form the habit of saying this prayer in the back of your mind all the time, it soaks into you, like dye into cotton, and colors the way you encounter every person and circumstance you meet." –Frederica Mathewes-Green

If you have ever struggled with incessant thoughts and worries, the ancient desert fathers and mothers offer a profound source of wisdom for quieting the mind and turning the heart to Christ. A short, simple prayer called "The Jesus Prayer" provides a trusted doorway into a real and deepening sense of the continuous presence of Christ; a spiritual jewel that has helped Christians for centuries.

In this book, popular Orthodox author Frederica Mathewes-Green offers the most comprehensive book to date on the Jesus Prayer. She illuminates the history, theology, and spirituality of Orthodoxy, so that the Prayer can be understood in its native context, and provides practical steps for making it a part of our being.

Product Reviews for The Jesus Prayer: The Ancient Desert Prayer that Tunes the Heart to God

Even if you don't believe that Paul's admonition to "pray without ceasing" or "pray constantly" was meant to be taken literally, you'll find much to ponder in this lucid account of the history, the meaning, and - especially - the practice of the Jesus Prayer: "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me." Most fo the exposition is in a reader-friendly question-and-answer format.
