About Our Prayer Ropes

 sister-tying-knots.jpg

We offer traditional knotted wool prayer ropes in three different thicknesses of yarn, and a wide variety of style and color options. The knotted satin prayer ropes, natural stone, wooden, and Panagia’s Pearls, serve as beautiful alternatives that can be worn in any social setting as a reminder to turn our minds to our Lord and to pray the Jesus Prayer without attracting attention. 

Please note that we need at least a week to make the knotted prayer ropes. The product pages describe how much time it takes to "Usually ship" each prayer rope.

 Wool & Satin Prayer Ropes

The materials used in crafting our prayer ropes are of high quality, but there will always be some variability in the wool or satin cord. The knots are tied closely together, but the prayer rope can be gently stretched so that there is a space in between each knot, and this increases the length of the prayer rope. The prayer rope lengths will vary slightly, even when using the same material. Below are listed the approximate lengths of the different sizes:

Stone, Wood, & Pearl Beaded Prayer Ropes

The beads used in our beaded prayer ropes are individually inspected by the sisters, to insure the highest quality. The semi-precious stone and Panagia’s Pearl’s prayer bracelets are strung on clear, stretch “Power cord.” The wooden prayer bracelets are strung on black, stretch “Power” cord. All of the longer wooden beaded prayer ropes are strung on black nylon cord, except for the olive wood, which is strung on 3-ply bonded beading twine.

All beaded wrist prayer ropes come with a lifetime re-stringing guarantee.
