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.
