For over 15 centuries repetition of the prayer 'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner' has been an effective and practical way to cool the mind of anxiety and stress, enrich the spirit and more generally bring a restoring centring to life.
Thoroughly biblical and used by the Church through the ages, the Jesus Prayer stands as a unique gift and task. It is an invitation that restores strands of our faith which have been broken apart over the centuries, weaving together the devotion of Eastern Orthodoxy, evangelical simplicity, catholic depth and charismatic empowerment.
Drawing on his own faith journey and pastoral experience, John Twisleton describes in this autobiographical work how he was called to welcome the Jesus Prayer as a surprising gift of the Holy Spirit. He shares how use of the prayer brings a gift of simplicity that counters the postmodern fragmentation of Christian life, as individuals and groups seek truth away from what is traditional and institutional teaching.
The simple yet proven discipline of the Jesus Prayer is popular now across the church, in charismatic as well as Eastern Orthodox circles. The book explains how the prayer contains the power of Jesus' name as well as having the capacity to draw us into the faith of his church and to help us value scripture, sacrament, creed and commandments.
