Large handmade Orthodox prayer rope with 100 knots. This Orthodox prayer rope is fully handmade of polyester cord and wooden beads.
Prayer rope is part of the practice of Eastern Orthodox monks and nuns and is employed by monastics (and sometimes by others) to count the number of times one has prayed the Jesus Prayer or, occasionally, other prayers. Historically, the prayer rope would typically have 100 knots.
This prayer rope is made according to the ancient monastic tradition of tying the knots so that the knots themselves would constantly make the sign of the cross.
Each knot contains seven little crosses being tied over and over, which makes it almost impossible to untie. Quality craftsmanship and durable.
