Morning Sequence: The Jesus Prayer

I have always loved The Jesus Prayer and in fact, I fall into it throughout the day when I'm stressed, angry, tired and even grateful!

Lord, Jesus Christ

Son of God

Have mercy on me, a sinner.

So today I have a new sequence for you. It's a great way to start off your day!

Standing Prayer

Beginning in Standing Prayer, move into Prayer Breathing- "Lord Jesus Christ"
