Summary explanation of the use of the Thousand Jesus Prayer
The use that is given begins by pronouncing the name of Jesus a thousand times, we consider banishing from our homes and from everything that surrounds us the forces of evil and the evil one in himself, after having done that, we perform the prayer of an Our Father to help prepare our spirit, we repeat Jesus 3 times in each decade of the rosary repeating phrases of attachment to our Lord Jesus Christ.
How to pray the Thousand Jesuses?
This tradition is based on pronouncing the name of Jesus a thousand times to weaken and defeat all evil forces, this as unequivocal proof of the victory of good against evil, we make a wooden cross (but if we already have a cross at home it is not necessary to make one) or it can also be an olive tree.
In the verse of the Holy Bible (Matthew 1,21) it is explained that Saint Joseph in his dreams had a brief conversation with an angel, in that dream that angel told him that the name of Jesus meant “The Savior”. In the biblical verse (Luke 1, 31-33) the Archangel Gabriel at the time of the annunciation comments the same thing to the Virgin Mary. That’s why his name has so much power.
The strength that this name has so powerful above all others comes from its meaning, it is a name before which, in all existential planes, every being kneels their knee, to venerate this name of the savior. To carry out a correct worship of this name, we make a modest altar, we occupy a cross in the middle of it, blessed water, two candles and a few flowers.
The most common way in which the thousand prayers to Jesus are made is by crossing himself with the sign of the Cross. In total silence, we ask with all our hearts what we want. After this process is finished, we perform an act of contrition, in other words, we sincerely regret something bad that we have done, later, we pray an Our Father, then a decade of the rosary begins.

The beads of our rosary will be passed one by one, saying and repeating for each one Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, (in total there would be about 50 times) and once the prayer of the complete rosary is finished, we finish by praying a Glory be to the father, to the son and the Holy Spirit, an Our Father is prayed and a final prayer is made, having made the prayer of 20 rosaries we will have culminated the thousand Jesus.
