These beautiful Chotki Prayer Beads feature 8mm Olive Wood polished beads from Bethlehem, 8mm Red Quartz gemstone beads with a silver Risen Christ Crucifix from Italy and a silver 3 way connector with silver pins and chain.

The Risen Christ Crucifix measures 1.75" x 2.75"
This is very nice, and very detailed crucifix.

The wood beads are all hand made from olive wood tree trimmings in Bethlehem, the Holy Land.

I used red quartz beads as spacers between sets of 25 olive wood beads, except for where the 3-way connector is.

This Chotki measures approx. 80" long. This is a large set of Prayer Beads.

Traditionally, the Chotki Prayer beads are not made in the linked style like a lot rosaries are. Since I made this in the linked style, I added the 3 way connector in place of a spacer bead to bring it all together.

I will be making the Chotki Prayer Beads with 33, 50, 100, 150 and 300 beads. I do take special orders, so if you see something you like, but would maybe like a different color or gemstone, please contact me @ littlegems@moment.net and I will make one for you.

Jesus Prayer Beads

The rediscovery of ancient spiritual practices in the contemporary church has led many Protestant, Anglican and Roman Catholic Christians to the “Jesus Prayer” or “Prayer of the Heart.” This form of prayer—first practiced by monks of the Eastern church in the fifth century—gradually leads the believer beyond words to silent contemplation of God's loving presence. It is often called "breath prayer" because repetition of a sacred text is coordinated with the body's natural rhythm of breathing, a practice that slows the metabolism and helps to focus the mind and heart. Unlike similar methods of prayer in other religions, the Jesus Prayer is specifically Christian and centers on the name of Jesus.

The Jesus Prayer, also called the Prayer of the Heart, can be prayed by anyone.

A prayer rope (chotki in Russian, komboskini in Greek) is a loop of knots, usually made of wool but sometimes of wood, that is used to keep track of the number of prayers which have been said. It is usually used with the Jesus Prayer: "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner." Historically it typically had 100 knots, although prayer ropes with 300, 50, or 33 knots or, less commonly, 250 or 12 can also be found in use today. There is typically a knotted cross at one end, and a few beads at certain intervals between the knots. "The purpose is to help us concentrate, not necessarily to count."

Its invention is attributed to St. Pachomius in the fourth century as an aid for illiterate monks to accomplish a consistent number of prayers and prostrations. Monks were often expected to carry a prayer rope with them, to remind them to pray constantly in accordance with St. Paul's injunction in I Thessalonians 5:17, "Pray without ceasing."
