Let us humble ourselves, and the Lord will grant us to know
the power of the Jesus Prayer!
Learn how to have Christ-like humility, and the Lord will
grant you to taste the sweetness of prayer.
And if you want to achieve pure prayer, become humble,
exercise temperance, confess sincerely,
and the prayer will love to swell in you.
Become obedient, submit yourself with a sincere conscience
to all authorities, and be content with all things;
then your mind will be cleansed from vain thoughts.
Remember that the Lord sees you, and be careful,
lest you sadden your brother with something - do not condemn him,
and do not sadden him even with a single glance.
Then the Holy Spirit will love you,
and He will help you in all things.
