Announcement   Welcome to Prayerworks Studio!

We specialize in making beautiful, handcrafted prayer beads and other tools to enhance your prayer life.

Our focus is on Protestant (Anglican) prayer beads, though we also make rosaries, chaplets, and just about anything else that might help you in your prayer life. All of our beads come packed in a gift bag and include a guide to using the beads and sample prayers, in case you're new to prayer beads.

If you want to learn more about Protestant prayer beads, check out my book, A Bead and a Prayer: A Beginner's Guide to Protestant Prayer Beads, published by Upper Room Books. Written in the form of a four-week Bible study, this book has won two awards: Book of the Year by the Christian Small Publisher Association, and Finalist for the 2014 USA Best Book Award.

We also have a second book, Another Bead, Another Prayer: Devotions for Use with Protestant Prayer Beads (Upper Room Books). My husband and I cowrote this book, which includes 28 prayers and offers a variety of ways to use the beads to connect with God.

Our third book, Beads of Healing: Prayer, Trauma, and Spiritual Wholeness (Upper Room Books), was released March 2017.

We have a website full of resources on prayer beads. I also maintain a blog where I write prayer bead devotions as well as discuss the history and use of prayer beads. You can connect with us at: www.prayerworksstudio.com.

We'd love for you to join us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/prayerworksstudio. Or follow us on Twitter: @abeadnaprayer and @prayerworksnews.

I really appreciate this guide to Protestant prayer beads. I always wanted to pray the rosary but couldn’t align with the Hail Marys. This helps me find a way to pray that works.

About

How will you listen to God today?

I hate to say that God told me to make prayer beads. It sounds a little kooky. Or maybe a lot kooky. But there it is: God told me to make prayer beads. And I listened.

Because for the past 20+ years I have been collecting prayer beads and other tools for prayer. And because I have a Master of Theological Studies that I wasn't really using much.

Because I am a Methodist girl who has always loved the ancient practices of the early church. And because I have never been very good at prayer, and God knew that one way to get me to pray was to put me in a position where I had to talk with people about prayer.

And because stuff that is both creative and spiritual makes my heart skip a beat.

So I listened and started making prayer beads. I opened up this shop. Now, I lead workshops and retreats. And my book, A Bead and a Prayer: A Beginner's Guide to Protestant Prayer Beads (Upper Room Books, 2013), was named 2014 Book of the Year by the Christian Small Publisher Association; and Finalist, 2014 USA Best Book Award. My second book, Another Bead, Another Prayer: Devotions for Protestant Prayer Beads (Upper Room Books, 2014), was co-authored with my husband and has been well-received.

Now, my third book, Beads of Healing: Prayer, Trauma, and Spiritual Wholeness (Upper Room Books, 2017) is out, and it tells the story of how learning to listen to God led to the most profound healing in my life. And prayer beads were a part of that.

The best part is, I've developed a comfort level with prayer. Who would have guessed?!

Have you listened to God today? If not, when? Where? How?

We are a family of theologians and artists. We have always been drawn to the ways that people pray and the things they use to feel closer to God. Now we are combining our interest in prayer, our love of all things visual, our artistic experience, and our theological training to create one-of-a-kind handmade "works of prayer."

We would be honored to make something to enhance your prayer life and connection with God.

We take our work very seriously and want you to be satisfied. We make, pack, and ship everything ourselves. If you ever have a concern about your order please let us know as soon as possible so that we can have a chance to address it.
