Jesus Prayer Beads
- Item #: LPC-011
A modern and western beaded Jesus Prayer Rosary made by one of the monks at Little Portion Hermitage. Length: approximately 26" plus medallion.
"O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner."
Very early on, Christians came to understand that the very name of Jesus had great power, and the recitation of His Name was itself a form of prayer. This short prayer is a combination of that early Christian practice and the prayer offered by the publican in the parable of the pharisee and the publican (Luke 18:9-14). It is perhaps the most popular prayer among Eastern Christians, both Orthodox and Catholic, who recite it using prayer ropes that are similar to Western rosaries.
This is a great tool to accompany JMT's new book, The Jesus Prayer, A Cry for Mercy, A Path of Renewal.
