Orthodox Books On Prayer  (30)

THE ART OF PRAYER: AN ORTHODOX ANTHOLOGY

Author: #: 10357
What is Prayer? What is its essence? How can we learn to pray? What does the spirit of the Christian experience as he prays in humility of heart? Such are the questions which this book sets out to answer. It presents a picture of prayer in its various degrees, from ordinary oral prayer to unceasing prayer of the heart; above all, however, it is concerned with one particular prayer, known in the Orthodox Church as the Jesus Prayer. One of the simplest of all Christian prayers, this consists in a single brief sentence, ‘Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy upon me.’ Ten words in English and in other languages it is even shorter. Yet around these few words many Orthodox over the centuries have built their spiritual life, and through this one prayer they have entered into the deepest mysteries of Christian knowledge. The present anthology helps to explain how men have come to discover so much in so short a phrase.

ORTHODOX PRAYER LIFE: THE INNER WAY

Author: MATTHEW THE POOR #: 10362
Saints who experience the power of prayer say it gives them wings to fly: wings of elation from being in proximity with Jesus Christ and relief from the burden of a sinful conscience. Once engulfed in the grace of the Holy Spirit, the person in prayer experiences death to sin, resurrection in the Spirit, and mystical ascension to the Father. The visible touches the Invisible, and joy wells up in the human heart.

ON THE PRAYER OF JESUS

Author: BISHOP IGNATIUS BRIANCHANINOV #: 10363
The Prayer of Jesus, `Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner` repeated constantly, so as to assist `unceasing prayer` as the Apostle Paul commands, is as ancient as the New Testament Church itself, and yet is almost completely unknown by modern Christians. Bishop Ignatius clearly exposes the history, the depth and the value of this prayer, and of `Prayer of the Heart`, as well as the dangers of striving for unceasing prayer without an experienced spiritual guide. Bishop Ignatius clearly outlines the usage of the prayer, couching his explanation with extensive quotes from the Holy Fathers, the Philokalia, and the Scriptures. No person zealous for the `Prayer of the Heart` should ignore this important work.
