I often practice the Jesus Prayer during the day. I have found it is a very powerful practice.
Here is how I use it.
I shorten the prayer to, “Jesus, son of God, have mercy on ________.” In the blank I fill in a person’s name or situation that I pray for. I like to perform this prayer with a prayer rope or prayer bracelet as I move from knot to knot with my index finger and thumb.
Another way I use the Jesus Prayer is as follows. I shorten it to the word: Jesus. When I am anxious or worried, I recite:
“Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus”
This simple practice never ceases to calm me down, bring me back to the present and allows me to move forward. I encourage you to give it a try too.
The prayer rope and prayer bracelets I use in my practice are from Prayer Bracelet.
