“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

THE JESUS PRAYER AND INNER CHRISTIAN LIFE: A presentation by Federica Mathewes-Green

I first became aware of Federica Matewes-Green in Deerfield, Illinois about 20 years ago, when I was speaking at the Center For Bioethics and Human Dignity (Trinity International University). She interviewed me for a magazine article. about my life and my Christian perspective on degenerative disease, disability and suffering. I liked Federica very much; I met a sister in Christ.

Federica Matthews-Green is an Eastern Orthodox Christian author and speaker. I came across a Youtube video of Federica speaking about The Jesus Prayer, and a deeper application of it in Christian life.  The Jesus Prayer is a part of my own inner Christian discipline.

Below is the video. It is 36 minutes long but time well spent.
