How do I pray? How can I live more fully into the wonder and sacredness of this moment, this life that is mine? Is it possible to live with greater awareness of both the mystery of God's holiness and the wonder of my humanness in the midst of the dizzying distractions and competing claims upon my life? Starting today, I'll begin to introduce a form of prayer that doesn't so much answer these kinds of questions as much as it involves you and me in the Answer itself--and that is far better.

The Jesus Prayer is among the oldest forms of prayer aimed at the ultimate goal of the spiritual life--communion with God (John 17.21), where you are alive from the center with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3.19).
