Beaded Prayer Bracelet ‘s
Next to our traditional 33 Knot prayer bracelets we also offer beaded prayer bracelet ‘s. These bracelets are spin-offs of the rope ones. We are already accustomed to these type of bracelets, we know them from the Catholic religion. They are known as rosary bracelets.
These bracelets can also be used for prayer, it is the same concept as with the prayer rope bracelets, instead of a knot resembling a prayer, a bead resembles one. You follow the beads of the bracelet and keep counting prayer after prayer.
Tip: Look up this post about The Jesus Prayer, many use this prayer with these bracelets
Of course, not everyone uses these bracelets for prayer, some only love to wear something religious, something to give them a feeling of belonging, to feel protected, for personal expression, and even some only as a fashion statement. The latter is less desirable as we saw it happen with the Catholic rosary bracelet. But one could argue that it is spreading the word and bringing Orthodox religion to people not familiar with it. But this is a discussion for another time.
The beaded prayer bracelet ‘s we offer are exclusive to our store and are designed in-house. We make these bracelets by hand and then they are transported to an Orthodox Monastery to overnight and be purified. In other words, they are blessed. After the purification, they are returned to us and shipped to our distribution center. Although these bracelets are blessed, we always recommend that you also offer them to be blessed at your local Church. If you are a regular Church going person the Pastor will know you and bless your bracelet with a more personal prayer for you. This is just a personal recommendation and not a must.
