“To acquire the habit of practicing the Jesus prayer, it is necessary that externally this prayer is at all times by itself on the tongue, and internally—our mind to be collected in the heart and thus we to stand unceasingly before God with suitable warmth of heart and particularly with contrite falling down before Lord the Savior.” (Saint Nicodemus the Hagiorite)
