Prayer Beads and An Altar In Your Heart book COMBO


Greek and Russian/Eastern Orthodox and other Christian groups use prayer counters, usually a knotted rope but sometimes strings of beads. Prayer ropes can consist of 33, 50, 100 or even 300 knots or beads.

These prayer beads are a circle of 33 prayer beads, to commemorate the number of years Jesus was on the earth; they are not divided into decades. On each bead, the Jesus Prayer can be prayed: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

A simple and powerful form of meditating, a daily practice can bring deep peace and faith.

The beads are natural, authentic tigers eye, sturdily strung and a brown tassel. Listing includes a handwoven from Mexico zipper bag (colors will vary).

Paired with the book by Rev. Robert Hibbs, An Altar in Your Heart: Meditations on the Jesus Prayer, this set makes a great gift for yourself or others. Using straightforward and direct language, Rev. Hibbs explains how and what a daily Jesus Prayer practice is like, and the deep and abiding peace and faith it can bring. A beautifully done hardcover book, it includes a CD of excerpts of Rev. Hibbs’ Jesus Prayer retreat.

Sounds of the Eternal: Meditative Chants and Prayers CD


These rich prayers and chants are a companion to the book Sounds of the Eternal; the CD serves as an aid to awaken awareness of the goodness of creation and of the body. The prayers, inspired by Jewish and Celtic spirituality, are interspersed with an accompanying chant. The music and vocals of a Celtic and middle-eastern nature have been said to be “inspiring,” “strengthening,” “peaceful” and create a sense of “nearness.” Excellent for prayer and meditation groups, retreats and workshops. This CD, originally published in 2006, has a new cover which is inspired by the artwork of Tobi Kahn.
