The Way of the Pilgrim

The Way of the Pilgrim

The Way of the Pilgrim is a 19th century Russian work translated into English. The story is about the journey of a begging wanderer who treks across Russia, and while on that journey, practices the “Jesus Prayer.” This form of prayer is also known as inner prayer or prayer of the heart.  It employs the short, repeated invocation, over and over:  “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of god, have mercy on me, a sinner” (or some variation thereof).  You can find a free eBook here.
