Lord Jesus Christ,
Son of God,
Have mercy on me.
Centuries ago, Christians in the deserts of Palestine and Africa who sought to pray without ceasing developed this simple prayer. This ancient jewel enables and encourages the person praying to remain in the presence of God rather than focusing on feelings or thoughts about God.
In The Jesus Prayer, Frederica Mathewes offers a bit of history on the prayer, supporting scripture, and her thoughts on the meaning of mercy. Read about her own experiences and benefit from her advice on how to make this prayer a part of the diet that feeds your hunger for God. Just as Frederica learned how to tune her heart to the Lord, so can you.
