The Pilgrim taught me the Jesus Prayer. My fascination with Paul’s comment in 1 Thessalonians to pray without ceasing lead me to The Way of A Pilgrim. The moment I began reading, I started saying the prayer in my mind as I walked about leading my life. My intention continues: to pray this prayer into my very being, my mental, spiritual and muscle memory, so that it becomes an involuntary attribute of who I am.
I forget and remember, forget and remember, but with commitment and practice I notice the prayer is with me more and more frequently as I carry out household chores, drive in the car or take a walk.
