Williams Extols "The Jesus Prayer"

Rowan Williams, one-time Archbishop of Canterbury, is extolling the virtues of The Jesus Prayer, a simple prayer that has its roots in the Orthodox Christian tradition.

I had been ignorant of the Jesus Prayer until fairly recently.

It will do nicely, I think, when we become aware of our need of God's help, but "do not know how to pray as we ought" (Romans 8:26).
