Learn Another Way to Pray

Over the past few years some United Methodist Churches have started holding workshops where you make your own prayer beads and learn to pray using beads.
Why? "Prayer Beads" or "Prayer Ropes" serve as a visual cue and remind us to pray while helping us remain focused on prayer so that we do not wander mentally and they guide us through a time of prayer. Prayer beads serve as a concrete reminder of God with us. The goal is to learn to pray with greater intentionality, focus and clarity. The beads are just a tool to help you accomplish the goal.
At this workshop, October 4th from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m., you will make your own set of beads and leave with a prayer booklet to guide you through the seasons of the church year as you pray.
