Prayer Beads for Children and Adults



Prayer Beads

For a Vacation Bible School Project, we developed prayer beads for children to make and some prayers for children and adults to use with the beads.  The Anglican Rosary seemed to be too many beads and so we simplified by using the week as a the basic "time" unit with days of the week and three prayer times of the day.   (click on the graphic to zoom)

Labyrinth Prayer Beads

When we developed a Labyrinth at St. John the Divine, Morgan Hill, I wanted to add to meditative walking prayer beads designed to correspond with the turns in the Labyrinth.  The Labyrinth Prayer Beads and the accompanying prayers provide a way to turn pacing and fidgeting into a holy pacing and fidgeting by a fuller kinesiology.  Prayerful mind directing prayerful hands and feet.  Karen, my wife, completed the task by constructing the beads to fit our particular labyrinth.  (click on the graphics to zoom)
