Prayer and the Heart


‘When praying, keep to the rule that it is better to say five words from the depth of your heart than ten thousand words with your tongue only.” (St. John of Krondstat)

"The basic condition for the Prayer of the Heart is the belief that it is not merely prayer but rather true communion with God." (Archimandrite Aimilianos)

“It is necessary to rouse the heart to pray, otherwise it will become quite dry. The attributes of prayer must be: love of God, sincerity, and simplicity.” (St. John of Krondstat)

“Prayer is the way that truth is worked into your heart to create new instincts, reflexes, and dispositions.” (Pastor Timothy Keller)

“The Jesus Prayer – ‘Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner’ - is an ancient meditative prayer that is meant to draw the deepest part of ourselves, the nous or heart, to Christ.” (Sacramental Living)
