This article contains a free Bible Study resource for Bible Study on the subject of the Jesus Prayer. The Prayer has been practiced throughout many centuries as part of the tradition of the Eastern church. It also began to be used during the last hundred years in some Western churches including some Anglican and Roman Catholic churches. Also see the Lord's Prayer.

Jesus Prayer - the Parable of the Publican and the Pharisee
The Prayer relates to the lesson taught in the Parable of the Publican and the Pharisee (Luke 18:9-14). In this parable the Pharisee demonstrates the improper way to pray by exclaiming: "Thank you Lord that I am not like the Publican" as opposed to the Publican who prays correctly in humility, saying "Lord have mercy on me, a sinner".

Words of the Jesus Prayer
The words of the Jesus Prayer are as follows:

 Lord Jesus Christ,
Son of God,
have mercy on me,
a sinner.

Repetition of the Jesus Prayer
The Jesus Prayer is a prayer addressed to God, an invocation of the name of Jesus. The continuing repetition of the Prayer is regarded as a form of meditation, the words of the prayer functioning as a kind of mantra, clearing the mind of all other thoughts.

Jesus Prayer and Meditation
People who say the prayer as part of meditation often synchronize it with their breathing. Breathing in while calling out to God (Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God) and breathing out while praying for mercy (have mercy on me, a sinner).

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God - have mercy on me, a sinner.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God - have mercy on me, a sinner.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God - have mercy on me, a sinner.
