"Pray, and do not labor much to conquer your passions by your own strength. For 'greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world,' (1 John 4:4), says holy Scripture."
After learning more about the current notoriety of the "Jesus Prayer" from the internet, I am again reading about it solely for its teachings about the subject of prayer in general. The tale of the Russian pilgrim is truly proving to be a blessing to me in surprising ways.
At the centre of the book lies the idea of learning `to pray without ceasing,' as instructed by St Paul. To this end, the pilgrim of the title learns about the Jesus Prayer, `Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Living God, have mercy on me, a sinner.' He then walks through an effectively medieval Russia, all the while learning how to pray this prayer. The book describes his growth in faith, and the wonderful peace that grows deep down in his soul.
The book is therefore moving but also enormously useful. It can be read both as a work of devotion but, more importantly, should be treated as a textbook of how to pray in the Orthodox tradition. Don't treat it as a book for the Orthodox alone, though: it will help anyone and everyone who has the awareness that they need to grow in prayer, and have the discipline to do so.
