How do you say the Jesus Prayer in Greek?

(I can read the Greek alphabet. If you provide a transliteration, please write out the spelling of any words that might be difficult to transliterate).

Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: To tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world

Greek: +Ãœ-ì-ü+¦+¦ +Ö+¦-â++-ì +º-ü+¦-â-ä+¡, +Ñ+¦+¡ -ä++-à  +ÿ+¦++-ì +¦+++¦+¦-â-î++ +++¡ -ä-î++ +¦+++¦-ü-ä++++-î++.
Phonetic English: KIrieh IesOU hrisTE, yEH tou theOU, eleisON meh ton amartoLON
Translation: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, the sinner.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Close, but the spelling and accent marks are a bit off.  It should read (using Modern Greek, post-'76 diacritics, as you did):

"+Ãœ-ì-ü+¦+¦ +Ö++-â++-ì +º-ü+¦-â-ä+¡, +Ñ+¦+¡ -ä++-à  +ÿ+¦++-ì, +¦+++¡++-â++++ +++¦, -ä++++ +¦+++¦-ü-ä-ë++-î."

Phonetically:  KEE-ree-eh e-e-SOU hris-TEH, yEH tou theh-OO, el-LAY-ee-son meh, ton ah-mar-to-LOH.

Or sometimes,

"+Ãœ-ì-ü+¦+¦ ++++-Ä++, +Ö++-â++-ì +º-ü+¦-â-ä+¡, +Ñ+¦+¡ -ä++-à  +ÿ+¦++-ì, +¦+++¡++-â++++ +++¦, -ä++++ +¦+++¦-ü-ä-ë++-î."

Phonetically, same as above, except beginning with:  "KEE-ree-eh ee-MON...."
