The prayer rope has great power, «it is the monk’s weapon and the knots are the bullets», said Saint Paisios. Prayer rope is a prayer aid for monks, clergy and laity. According to the Christian tradition, the prayer ropes and the prayer handicrafts or else prayer worry beads in general have their origin in Saint Pachomius. Specifically, the Saint began to look for a way that would help the monks in self-concentration during prayer. Then the Archangel Gabriel visited him in his sleep and showed him how to make the tool that would serve the needs of prayer.
