Prayer beads have been around since the early Christians went into the desert to seek solitude and to be closer to God, concentrating on “praying continually.” They would keep track of their prayers or recitations of Psalms with stones, which soon changed to knots on a prayer belt, and gradually evolved to beads. In the 1980s the idea of Protestant prayer beads first resurfaced in the Episcopal Church, but today many other denominations have discovered the benefit of having something tactile and visually pleasing to either hold or to help keep track of who or what they are praying for. Encouraging prayers of praise, petition, intercession, and thanksgiving with these four areas incorporated into the circle of beads, they are a sensory reminder of our open relationship with God.
Karen Smith from Practical Resources for Churches will lead the workshop. The PRC is an ecumenical resource center connected with the Long Island Presbytery, with an office in Patchogue.
At this workshop we will make our own set of prayer beads and have some quiet time to pray with them. Cost for supplies is $10 fee for supplies. Registration is required. Please call the church office 631-324-0711, or see Mary Siska, to register by January 19th. Bring a friend.
