Prayer Beads (often unfamiliar if you didn’t grow up in a Catholic or Anglican faith tradition)
HOW TO PRAY USING PRAYER BEADS
1 Begin at the charm with an invocation.
2 Move to the invitatory bead, reciting the words that will serve as your call to prayer.
3 Follow the invitatory bead to the first cruciform bead, reciting for the first time the phrase you will return to at each cruciform bead throughout your time of prayer.
4 Move slowly along the week beads, calling to mind the prayer assigned for each one. You may go around this circle of prayer one time or many.
5 Return to the invitatory bead when you are ready to end your prayer, reciting your chosen benediction.
6 Close the prayer as desired on the charm.
