Jesus prayer is simple “meditation” prayer used by Christians in Orthodox church. The ancient and original form did not include the words, “a sinner,” which were added later.
It is often repeated continually as a part of personal ascetic practice, to keep stillness. The prayer is particularly esteemed by the spiritual fathers of this tradition as a method of opening up the heart (kardia) and bringing about the Prayer of the Heart.
The Prayer of The Heart is considered to be the Unceasing Prayer that the apostle Paul advocates in the New Testament. St. Theophan the Recluse regarded the Jesus’ Prayer stronger than all other prayers by virtue of the power of the Holy Name of Jesus.
