    What is the Jesus prayer in english? Are you talking about ” the Lord’s Prayer” or a section of it?

      It’s a form of prayer, better called Prayer of the Heart or Prayer of the Mind in the Heart. It goes back to early Christian monastic traditions developing into hesychasm. In its most popular form it consists of the phrase “Lord Jesus Christ , Son of God, have mercy upon me a sinner!”
