The Jesus prayer as prayer for others
The Jesus-Prayer is first of all meant to be a time for you to enjoy being together with Jesus Christ. Praying the Jesus-Prayer you’ll have his presence in your heart, and you carry him to every place you go and into every relationship. In this way it’ll be a blessing to others.
But you may also practice the Jesus-Prayer intentionally as an intercession or on behalf of others. This exercise was originally made for our Christfulness retreats at Tao Fong Shan, Shatin, Hong Kong. And as part of the exercise we suggest that the participants go to the Tao Fong Shan cross, and to look over Shatin, representing Hong Kong.
