Learn to Make Prayer Ropes {Workshop}

Just a quick note, I am off to celebrate my birthday with a nice afternoon at the monastery. :)

I wanted to post very quickly that I am *finally* going to attempt a video on how to tie prayer ropes. I mentioned doing this ages ago but couldn’t figure out how to do it. I think I have it figured out now, so I’m going to give it a whirl.

The video itself will not be posted until probably next week but I will be posting a supply list and some background information on prayer ropes and the Jesus Prayer shortly.

If you are interested in learning please leave a comment so I have an idea of how many people will be joining us!

  6. Happy Birthday! Many Years!I recently learned how to tie prayer ropes from online videos and text instructions. Since then, it has become a great enjoyment for me; also, they make great gifts (what could be better than the gift of prayer?). I am planning on making a bunch so that I can sell them in the Church bookstore with the proceeds going to alms/charity. I highly recommend learning this skill to all! God bless all the efforts of prayer!

  27. Count me in too. I've been trying to learn how to tie prayer ropes for some time now but need a little guidance.

  28. A superb idea, its very purifying to the mind when making a prayer rope.I learned it was a great way to relieve stress.You can find a great video that shows you how to tie one on Youtube. But it would be nicer if you would make one. To ad the personal touch.Just a note: Love you Orthodox Blog
