For centuries Christian ascetics have struggled to fulfill the Scriptural command to pray without ceasing. One such solution was to turn to the name of Jesus itself as a prayer during times of struggle and difficulty. This talk will examine this tradition, its spiritual and theological foundations, as it was practiced in the early centuries of the Church, and will attempt to offer some insight into how such practices could be adapted for the use of contemporary Christians.
