Prayer Beads

(So my creative Monday post is showing up on Tuesday this week due to general laziness and technical difficulties.)

As part of my rule of life, we’ve started having family prayer time several evenings a week. I have a prayer bead bracelet that I made a few months ago, and my children have been intrigued by this. The girls especially wanted to make their own, so on Saturday we got out the beads and string.

My bracelet has one bead for each of the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5), and one bead for each of my immediate family members: the three kids and Ryan.¬† The girls decided they needed prayer beads for grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, pets, and assorted friends–thus the necklace instead of a bracelet. They really put a lot of thought into which bead would represent which person (or animal).

I hope that these beads will be an encouragement for all of us to pray more intentionally and more faithfully.

Here is G wearing her prayer beads (and a random google eye in the middle of her forehead).
