  • These Orthodox prayer ropes are handmade with high-quality wool cord threads and acrylic beads.
  • Waxed thread to ensure durability and water resistance.
  • Handmade in Greece
  • Blessed Komboskoini
  • Waxed prayer rope
  • The prayer rope is one size and can stretch to fit even an adult man's hand. Just stretch it gently until it can slip tightly onto the wrist. It might need to apply a little force to open it but it will not break. Be careful NOT to stretch it too much because it will NOT go back to its original size. (See listed photos)
  • The Jesus Prayer that is being said on each and every knot is: "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner."

These prayer ropes are made durable and strong enough to stretch over the hand up to 4 inches. Over time the ropes will reduce in size to fit around the wrist after wearing.

A prayer rope (Greek: κομποσκοίνι, komboskini; Russian: чётки, chotki (most common term) or вервица, vervitsa (literal translation); Romanian: metanii / metanier; Macedonian and Serbian: бројаница, broyanitsa; Bulgarian: броеница, broyenitsa) is a loop made up of complex knots

The prayer rope is part of the habit 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, although prayer ropes with 50 or 33 knots can also be found in use today. Hermits in their cells may have prayer ropes with as many as 300 or 500 knots in them.

Orthodoxy regards the prayer rope as the sword of the Spirit, because prayer which is heartfelt and inspired by the grace of the Holy Spirit is a weapon that defeats the Devil.
