The Jesus Prayer
You need to pray with the prayer that is most acceptable under the given conditions and what your heart demands. If the heart is tired from a long prayer, go to a short one, and vice versa.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on me, a sinner.[
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner. (a very common form)
but in Greek the article

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me. (common variant on Mount Athos)
Jesus, have mercy.
Rejoice, O Virgin Theotokos!
Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you!
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb,
for you have borne the Savior of our souls!
O Heavenly King, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, Who art everywhere and fillest all things;
Treasury of Blessings, and Giver of Life - come and abide in us, and cleanse us from every impurity, and save our souls, O Good One.
Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
