Jesus Prayer

The Jesus Prayer is from the Eastern tradition of the Christian Church (sometimes called the “Orthodox” tradition). The standard formula of the Jesus Prayer is: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me.”  The prayer is repeated like a mantra as a part of contemplative way of praying.  Sometimes, a “chokti”, a prayer rope with knots in it, is used to track how many repetitions are said.  Learn more about praying the Jesus Prayer here.
