Using The Jesus Prayer
Full Product Description
The Jesus Prayer, 'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner', provides the basis for John Twisleton's exploration of the simpler Christian life that you can find and follow today.
In a hectic world, we so often struggle to find ways of growing in faith and especially deepening our experience of prayer. While many have been inspired by documentaries about contemplative prayer and monastic life, it remains a challenge to sustain disciplines of prayer and worship in the busyness of everyday life.
The Jesus Prayer of Eastern Orthodoxy, 'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner', offers a simple yet profound way of developing such discipline. Thoroughly biblical, carried forward by the faith of the Church through the centuries, it stands as both unique gift and task for us. In this book on the Jesus Prayer, its succinct summary of faith and its capacity to empower, John Twisleton gives practical guidance on how to use it, as well as exploring the simplicity of life it offers.

Using The Jesus PrayerMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner'—simple words and heartfelt prayer long used in the Orthodox traditions and here in this small but insightful book given new presence for anybody of any churchmanship.
Twisleton blends modern day autobiographical reflections with scripture, bible study and the history of this prayer to bring it into the presence of a modern church that has much need of such deep simple prayer.
Mindfulness is a word we come across often these days, and here we find an ancient form of mindfulness that works wonders and brings us closer to God through the medium of simple honest words that reflect the reality of who He is and who we are.
A lovely to read book that is simple to grasp and reflect upon, even in it's more deeper aspects of study.
