The Invocation of the Name of Jesus is a way of prayer perhaps more familiar to Christians of the East than of the West. In the Orthodox Church it is known under the name of the “Jesus Prayer” and it is widely practiced, not only in monasteries – for example, on Mount Sinai and Mount Athos – but by lay people as well. The Invocation of the Holy Name, however, has also been used by many generations of Western Christians. This form of prayer has a universal appeal – to Orthodox and Romans, to Anglicans and Protestants, to all kinds of Christians of both Eastern and Western traditions.
