Make Your Own Protestant 

Prayer Beads

Prayer beads can be a great way to deepen our prayer life. It can be a meditative and prayerful exercise to create them, to hold them and to pray with them in your hands. Each bead can be a different prayer or reminder that we are loved by a God who has invited us into communion and conversation.

You can make your own prayer beads, buy a set, and buy a devotional guide to help praying with beads. You can find all of this information at Prayer Works Studio which is lead by two United Methodists.

On Saturday September 12, 2020 we had a virtual prayer beads workshop to learn how to make your own! You can watch our recorded workshop here
