“…Every short prayer can reach that level, yet the Jesus prayer has the primacy because it unites soul with Lord Jesus, which is the sole way to a union with God, which is the goal of this prayer. Himself He said, ‘No one comes to the Father except through Me’ (John 14:6). Therefore he who acquires this prayer receives within him the whole power of the salvific struggle, which is what our salvation consists in.” (Saint Nicodemus the Hagiorite)
