Prayer Rope with Beads and 100 Knots
Prayer Rope with Beads is a genuine monastic handiwork. It is made with the love, care & prayer of Mount Athos Fathers. Athonite Monks, create unique handiworks in order to keep their hands, minds and hearts busy with their blessed work.
Even the few hours that they have to rest, they spend it making wonderful handiworks. The most popular monastic handiwork, according to Orthodox tradition, is the creation of Prayer Ropes.
When the monks need to go out of their monastery for some reason, travel, even visit a doctor, they usually carry with them all the necessary materials to make prayer ropes. When they dont, they hold a Prayer Rope in their hands, and pray unceasingly.
Thus they keep their spirit concentrated on their labors, their heart devoted to their prayer and their souls protected by temptations.
What is the Prayer Rope?
Prayer Rope usually consists of 33 or 100 knots. It can, of course, be even larger, with 200 or even 300 knots. It is made of wool or silk thread and is usually decorated with beads that make it easier to measure knots during prayer time
Prayer Rope is a necessary aid for participation in the Church’s worship services. Christians have it in their hands and while counting every knot they say the short prayer. “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, praise me”, “Virgin Mary Save Me” are the most common ones. By doing so they manage to stay concentrated on the Divine Orthodox Liturgy.
Prayer Rope with colored beads and 100 Knots is a useful aid for every Christian.
