They pray for sinners
There are many Protestants who consider prayer to the Saints and the Virgin Mary to be heresy. However, these prayers are part of the Christian Holy Tradition and were often performed by early Christians. Early Christian writings record visions of Saints praying and the oldest surviving prayer to the Theotokos (Holy Mother of God) dates to around AD 250.
The Jesus Prayer, a powerful prayer in the Orthodox Church, is an unceasing prayer that is repeated to the point of becoming a part of the heart. This prayer requires a significant amount of repetition and can take many years to master. It helps to keep track of how many times you repeat the prayer by counting the repetitions. A prayer rope can be helpful in keeping track of the number of repetitions.
Another book that can help you pray is the Orthodox Prayer Book. This book includes prayers for both sacramentals and daily prayers. It has prayers from the Greek, Serbian, and Russian churches, and several are translated into English for the first time.
