Lampworked white glass Week beads with black and tan glass dots, round tan glass spacer beads, and cross-shaped creamy shell Cruciform beads with two sizes of round black glass beads in their centers, grace this 17 inch set of Anglican Prayer Beads. A filigreed pewter cross with black enamel accents is the focal point of this set. The bumpy beads and especially the multiple roller-balls in the Cruciform beads feel especially nice in hand.
Protestant (Anglican) Prayer Beads are similar to a Catholic Rosary, but for Protestants to use during prayer. Unlike the Catholic Rosary, which has a set pattern for its use, Protestant Prayer Beads may be used any way that feels right for you. The circlet of Prayer Beads has four sections containing seven medium-sized "week" beads. Each section is separated by a larger, "Cruciform" bead. The circle begins and ends at the tail, which contains another of the medium-sized beads (which may be used as a Resurrection/listening bead), an invitatory Cruciform bead, and a cross or other symbolic pendant.
Purchase of these prayer beads includes a velvet storage pouch and a 16-page "Anglican Prayer Beads" booklet by Kristi Lyn Glass containing pictures, history, symbolism, instructions, and nine sample prayers. Also included is a lifetime string-replacement guarantee: If your Prayer Beads become unstrung at any time, simply return all the beads to Kristi Lyn Glass, and she will restring them for free.
