Church services are the center of our spiritual lives, and for many the only place we go to pray. With our church services suspended, saying prayers at home is something we can do for ourselves.
The “Jesus Prayer” is one of the most important prayers in the Orthodox Tradition. The Jesus Prayer is the form of invocation used by those practicing mental prayer, also called the “prayer of the heart.”
It is not long or complicated, simply:
“Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.”
