“Elder Zacharias used to say at the hut of the Transfiguration in new Skete, the fathers would say the Jesus Prayer out loud. Once, the demons had gathered, engaged, and one of them shouted: “They are saying the Jesus Prayer out loud. The prayer has no power!” One of the largest demons then said: “The jesus Prayer has power, whether they say it aloud or in their hearts, since there is nothing we can do about it”. (Elder Paisios)
