Talk 1: The Origin and Method of the Jesus Prayer
Our hearts are restless until they rest in God. In the depth of every person’s heart, there is this deep thirst for God. But quite often, people desire to pray but do not know how. Furthermore, St Paul exhorts us to “pray constantly” (1 Th 5:17). How can one be in the continuous presence of God in prayer, even whilst we carry on with our daily activities? In the first session, we will get back to the roots of the Jesus Prayer, its origin and objective. We will also consider the method of praying the Jesus Prayer effectively.
Talk 2: The Efficacy and Relevance of the Jesus Prayer in our Lives
In this session, we examine the nature of the Jesus prayer, particularly the psychology behind this method of prayer; its relevance to the modern man; the power of uttering the Name of Jesus and the fruits of those who give themselves to this prayer. We will also seek to establish the significant relationship between the Jesus Prayer, the Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet, which we know are also devotions that have inspired and brought many closer to Christ.
