Compel yourselves in the Jesus Prayer

Compel yourselves in the Jesus Prayer: this will become everything to you -- food and drink and clothing and light and consolation and spiritual life. This prayer becomes everything for him who possesses it. Without it, the emptiness of the soul cannot be satisfied. 

Do you want to love Christ? Long for the Prayer and embrace humility, and then you will realize that the Kingdom of God is within us.

Elder Ephraim of Arizona
