Many years ago I began to read the books about Orthodox Spirituality that talked about something the Fathers called Prayer of the Heart. This was a type of prayer – or stage of prayer, if you like – which the Fathers said is prayer in its truest sense, for which other forms of prayer are preparatory. It was said that the person who had Prayer of the heart prayed at all times, no matter what they were doing.
