How to pray


As I am now back with a spiritual advisor I am again exploring different ways of prayer. Given my constant obsession/battle with doing vs being I am now taking this into prayer too and I am doing the Jesus prayer.

How to pray is something that vexes those who have been Christians for ever and those who are new to the game. But here is a prayer that is simple, profound, difficult and easy all in one package. All you do is say “Lord Jesus have mercy on me”.

Don’t worry if you can’t focus on it, your mind will bounce around, other things will pop in, but you keep repeating, notice what is going on and relax.

I’ll let you know who it goes.
