FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK

THE JESUS PRAYER
Jesus told us, I call you my friends.
We need to stay in touch with Jesus as we do with any of our friends.

Staying in contact with Jesus is called prayer.
But it’s difficult to find time to pray with our busy schedules.

Here is a prayer you can pray during your busy schedules.
The Gospels tell us when Jesus was passing by a crowd of people,
a blind man called out: Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me.
Jesus stopped. It put the blind man in contact with Jesus.

It’s called the Jesus Prayer - a powerful 2000-year-old prayer.
JESUS, SON OF GOD, HAVE MERCY ON ME

The beginning - Jesus, Son of God - is an act of faith in Jesus.
The ending - Have mercy on me - asks for what we most need from God.
It’s short, easy to remember, and can be prayed often during the day.

It can also be used as a prayer for others:
Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on him or her or them.

Let’s put the Jesus Prayer on the clock - 3 seconds!
A tour group was on a 30-minute tour of a historic church.
At the end, the guide said: How many of you said a prayer during the tour?
I said 15 prayers during the tour! He had prayed the Jesus Prayer 15 times.

3 seconds to stay in contact with your friend - the Son of God.
3 seconds to make an act of faith in Jesus.
3 seconds to ask for His mercy and love.
3 seconds to pray for others.

JESUS, SON OF GOD, HAVE MERCY ON ME
