Overview
Shows how a simple physical practice can deepen and enrich one's prayer life. Prayer is essential to the Christian life, bonding us to God. Yet we find it difficult in our frenetic world to keep our minds focused for long. All kinds of external noise and inner voices clamor for our attention. How can we slow down and quiet down so as to truly wait on the Lord? Nan and Virginia offer a solution that calls on the physical senses to break through to the spiritual - praying with beads.

Publishers Description
Prayer is essential to the Christian life, bonding us to God. Yet we find it difficult in our frenetic world to keep our minds focused for long. All kinds of external noise and inner voices clamor for our attention. How can we slow down and quiet down so as to truly wait on the Lord? Nan Lewis Doerr and Virginia Stem Owens offer a solution that calls on the physical senses to break through to the spiritual ??? praying with beads. The use of prayer beads, which has a long history in practical spirituality, is now becoming more widespread among Protestants. Doerr and Owens here show readers how to use what have become known as Anglican or Christian prayer beads. Readers can then use the basic prayer structure provided by the beads to pray their way through each day ??? morning, noon, and night ??? and through the church year. These prayers can be enhanced and enriched by the mindful and meditative practice of using beads.

Praying With Beads  Feb 18, 2010
An excellent book for those learning the practice of praying with beads. A brief history of the practice begins the book and then prayers for the year follow.
 
Helpful and Enriching  Dec 29, 2009
I love trying new prayer practices. Not all strike a chord with me and draw me closer to the heart of God...but many do, and my prayer life has been enriched in recent years by the discovery of fixed-hour prayer, prayer labyrinths, chant, and more. It's almost as if praying saints of past generations actually knew a thing or two.

I was, therefore, intrigued to discover the book, Praying with Beads: Daily Prayers for the Christian Year, by Nan Lewis Doerr and Virginia Stem Owens. It consists of a compelling and instructive introduction, followed by morning, noon, and evening prayers for use with a string of prayer beads. The prayers follow the Christian calendar throughout the liturgical year.

I purchased an inexpensive string of 34 beads and used the Advent prayers throughout that season, and was wonderfully helped by the practice (the "Additional Sources and Materials" section at the back of the book offers helpful guidance for pricing and purchasing prayer beads). I heartily agree with Phyllis Tickle's endorsement on the back of the book, when she says, "Protestant Christians, whether liturgical or not, will find here not only a missing part of their heritage, but also much counsel and instruction for their future practice of the faith."
 
Transform your spiritual life with daily prayer  Mar 23, 2009
Praying With Beads...
The introduction to this book is rich in rosary history, and shows what the Anglican/Episcopal Rosary looks like.
It gives us a prayer to pray each week of the Church Year, in each season, plus gives us a Christmas Eve prayer, a Christmas day prayer...With prayers for special saints days like Remembrance of St Stephen.
I recommend this book to all my Christian friends who love praying. With at least 52 prayers here, my Church Year will be full of prayer to my Lord!
 
Contemplative options  Dec 26, 2008
Did you know that praying with beads or a rosary is a very contemplative activity? This book provides helpful options for using an Anglican rosary (though it could be adopted for use with any set of beads). I've also found it a good way to memorize some Scripture.
