Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
"Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me, a sinner."
These words have strengthened and comforted believers for centuries. The Jesus Prayer comes to us from the Greek Orthodox tradition. In these pages, Father John Michael Talbot explores more of the roots of the prayer along with the theological and practical meaning of each word in the lives of believers today. He ends each chapter with a brief practice using the prayer.
In this new book by John Michael Talbot readers are invited to meditate on the twelve simple words that lie at the heart of the Christian East. Complete with historical context and exercises for self-reflection, this book shows how a single prayer could sustain the spiritual life of a civilization.
