Repeating the Name of Jesus


Elder Paisios is another holy person among many who place an emphasis on the practice of what is called the “Jesus Prayer.”
He says,
We should constantly and unceasingly repeat the Jesus prayer.  Only the name of Christ must remain inside our communication with God, then the devil finds the chance to confuse us with negative thoughts.  Thus, we end up not knowing what we want, do, or say.
