The Jesus Prayer, also known simply as The Prayer, is a short formulaic prayer esteemed and advocated especially among the ancient Eastern churches. It is sung here in Old Church Slavonic. The devils and demons hate this chant! It is a simple yet effective prayer which is appropriate at all times – walking, riding a bus, waiting in a queue, everywhere! Close your eyes and allow it to enter you. It is not repetitious. It is the gateway to the Eternal.
