Desert Prayers is an anonymous online meditation journal based on the ancient prayer practices of Evagrius of Pontus, a fourth-century Christian monk and desert father. Evagrius believed that contemplative prayer leads to a quieting of the mind and a quelling of troubling thoughts (also called passions or demons). This practice cultivated a deep love for God, neighbor, and self in the hearts of early Christians. It can do the same for us today.
