Prayer beads: The Anglican Prayer Beads

As a born Catholic the rosary has been a standard item, sometimes people even use it as an accessory. Even after being an atheist for so long I still have a some rosaries with me. I even have a big rosary in my bag and if asked I can still recite the rosary.

Prayer beads have been a part of many religions like Islam, Hinduism and much more. But with the rise of other Christian sects who have much hate and disgust for anything Catholic, like Mary, the Saints, Images and the rosary.

I just recently found out that there is such a thing called as an Anglican Prayer Beads. It's mainly used by Anglicans and Episcopalians as an aid in prayer. Most people have this bias against such acts of prayer as they find it somewhat against what they think is what the Bible disallows or what they think is prohibited by the Bible. For me I am fine with prayer for it can be meditative in itself.

Unlike the rosary the Anglican Prayer Bead is shorter and is less repetitive. You can give it a try if you want.

Here are interesting links for more reads: Prayer Beads and Deuteronomy 6.5 + Leviticus 19.18 + Matthew 5.44

Just follow these simple steps.
